500 club rules,2016-7

500 club rules, 2016-7.


Received this set of rules from Al the Comm, any problems with them see him or the secretary of the 500 Section.






And mind the ducks of course, this is a Class 3 Bird Reserve.
Duckie Teal.

A blast from the past

Spoke to Lawrence today and he showed me this photo he found in a charity shop this week, as you can see it shows our club landing stage!, though its obviously before 2006 which was when the present stage was updated to the metal checkered plate one now.
This one is wooden and the people shown aren't plain to see who they are, perhaps if you recognise yourself you could let me know so I can put your name to the picture, but if you were on a sickie from work perhaps not!!.

  

And a tidied up one
Nice to see some oldies Hey!.

Its hard to be Nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

Things have got so bad that the good old days were only last week!.

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Colwyn Bay Club 2016.

Colwyn Bay Club 2016.

Received this e-mail this week from the sec at the Colwyn Bay club,

We are in the process of moving lakes and that involves obtaining new 
Licences, plus H&S and insurance approvals.

Due to the uncertainty of those outcomes, we will not be holding our 
Regatta in 2017 and do not know if it will return at a future date.

Thanks to everyone for their previous support, it was much appreciated.

Regards

Alan Woodward.

As anyone who has been to this club's shows in the past, they will be disappointed to see this, but hopefully it will be returning in the future!.
Bob (The Builder) Abell and myself went there this year and even though it was on the same day as our club's regatta, we decided to go and fly our flag!.To give you an idea of this clubs event in 2016 here are some pictures for you.

Bob the builder.
 
Sailing his Slo Mo 2.


Then he had a go sailing my Duck, the one built by Graham Harling!,

Then it was my turn to sail Bobs Slo Mo 2


Fame at Last
Another type of duck




General view.








Hopefully this is not another club biting the dust show wise!, would be such a shame as they have been good at it as I've been going for the last six or seven years and never had a bad one.

A blast from the past at Colwyn Bay Shows.

Rosie,Joyce,Velda and I.

Straight running


Guess who with the Great Eastern?.

View from the show.

Not many people have seen this one, the old lake which was where the A55 above was built over!.

Hope these old pictures will bring some happy memories to our members and the Colwyn Bay members.
.......................................................................................................

Will be sorry if they never have any more shows
It was a very friendly show and full of nice memories too
And a lovely ride out, with trouble free parking
Bob the Abell.

Hard to find something to write about this time of year, but hope this reflection of the past year will keep you going until the next time!.

That's all for now folks

Warwick Show 2016.

Warwick Show 2016.

For those of you who didn't go to the Warwick show for one reason or another here is Bob Abell's report I don't know how he does it for the price!.

This is the luxury coach they travelled in!,
Note the reg number, FA 60 ENG.
it was the England Football team coach in 2010.
Talk about arriving in style!.


A very unimpressive showground entrance 

The show mascot, Robby the Ram.

Colin Bishop the Model Boats Magazine Website Editor.

Dave Milbourn of Components Shop.

Jeanie Deans.

As I'm building one of these Narra Boats, Bob included these pictures of this nicely furnished one.




If you want to see some more of Bob's pictures and review 


Thanks again Bob the Abell for your report!.

The model boat club was being driven through a town and the driver shouted out.
"If you look to the left you will see we are driving past the the biggest pub in town"
A voice at the back shouts,
"Why!".

Hollywood movies would be improved if they shot less film and more producers!.

A wife told her husband to go and change their son, two hours later he came back with a baby girl!.

Where do Forrest Rangers go to"Get away from it all".

Have you checked out the "For sale" section lately?.
Tidied it up and dropped out the items that were obviously not going to sell, either not wanted, or too dear and the already sold items, in case you couldn't see the wood for the trees!.
