Etherow at Ellesmere 2014

We had another successful weekend at Ellesmere to start the year off with a bang!.

Some of our models getting a lot of attention.




Paul Thomason from Model Boats magazine forum, Geoff Abell and Duckie

It was only a small room we were in but as we were there on a cancellation I suppose it was a case of first up best dressed!, still as I said we had lots of interest and an earlier booking next year might see us with a better location?.

On the Saturday, Bob Abell and myself made a bee line for the Cafe before the rush and got one of these cholesterol  builders and very nice too, we had intended to do the same on the Sunday but surprise surprise the cafe only had a limited menu that day as something had been overworked the day before and had broken down!, still we had a nice bowl of soup and a sandwich before the rush.


Then it was back to the boats and the viewing and there in a side room was our newest member Paul Blyth who I think had only joined our club at the Poynton show and there he was with two beautiful Warships,

Paul

Couldn't get any better pictures of his boats for the people round them, sorry about that Paul.
having said that here is his awards for his efforts, a Gold and a Silver!!, and a member of Etherow!!


 Well done, Paul.

Charlie Amazed, how do they do it?, he said!.

This is Duckie talking (as usual) to a Member of the Irish MBC and yes they were there for the weekend and he was telling me he was building 5 Viking longboats ready for the 1,000 festival of the Vikings visiting Ireland and their club was going to have a re-enactment for it.
There were members from Jersey MBC with a stand there as well.

A general view from off the bridge after visiting the trade stalls, which were the same as last year.
