Kirklees Model Boat Show, 10th Sept 2017.

For those of you that couldn't manage to get to Kirklees Model Boat Show, where the theme was 'Warships' here is a brief report from Al the Nav(y).

A few pictures from Kirklees on Sunday, a good day, managed to keep in front of the weather.
A lot of boats on the water and Stan Reffin in fine form.
Alan.
Setting up our stand.

That's not a Gazebo, its a marquee isn't it!.  

Some of the exhibits and docks on show. 

Paul the Comm's, USS Columbus.

You've seen this one of Alan's on Etherow Waters a few times, can't get enough of a good thing can you, I say!.

If anyone wants to send me more pictures of this event, I will gladly add them to this post.
Please edit them to a reasonable size though!.

Message from the Commodore, 9.9.2017.

Club 500
The committee have decided to relax the use of club 500 type boats outside of organised races and time trials. Their use is now allowed  for testing and setting up purposes at any time other than Saturdays and Sundays. Please give consideration to wildlife and slower boats when doing so.
The ban on very fast boats is still in place. 

Paul the Comm.

Thursday Sail 7th September 2017.

I think it was a good decision that the committee made on cancelling the club meeting on the 13th September due to the road resurfacing in George St has it would probably run over the finish date, well Geoff was right as on the first night's work the workmen put a hole in the water main right on the bend up to the Andrew Arms!.
So it meant the the locals, as well as having a sleepless night got up to find they had no water as well!.

On to the good stuff.

This is the latest model of Eric P's

Makes a nice boat does Eric.


That's him in the middle, not showing the plans for his model but his latest project, a classic MG!

Still showing it off!.

Some more of Al's war ship HMS Ramilles


Can't get too much of a good thing can you!.


A lot of nice detail here.




Can never get a shot of the front of the yachtsmen has they are always so keen and concentrated on their sailing










Big Al seems to be enjoying his sailing more now without the weight of the committee duties on his shoulders!.
No quite in focus as he was dancing about, surprising Eric.


Wheres the top?.


Here it is waiting whilst Steam Boat Bill get's steam up!.
Lovely model!.

Urgent Notice - Club Night - 13 September 2017.

The Club has been informed that Stockport Highways Department are 
proposing to undertake major road works, overnight from 6 p.m., on 
George Street, starting this week, which will result in road closures 
and probable lack of access to the Etherow car park. These works are due 
to finish on September 13, the date of the next Club Night, but may 
[probably will ?!!] over-run.

Consequently, the Committee, at its meeting last night, decided to 
CANCEL the Club Night on 13 September, and the Club House will NOT be 
opened.

The Club Auction Night, which was scheduled for that meeting, will now 
be held on Wednesday 27 September.

The talk on batteries, which had been scheduled for 27 September, will 
now be held at a later date.

The Committe are sorry to take this action, but consider it better than 
having everybody turn up, and nowhere to park.

If you are in contact with other Club members who do not have Email, 
please pass this information on to them, so that they do not have a 
wasted journey on that night.

Many Thanks
Geoff Garside [Wearing my Membership Secretary hat].

Menu at the Garden Centre Cafe, 
Might find it a lot cheaper than the lakeside cafe, the view not the same but your not eating there for the view, you get that sailing don't you!.

Why did the cannibal become a policeman ?,
So he could grill his suspects!.

His wife tried a mud pack to make herself more attractive, it worked for a while then it fell off!.

A couple of parrots are sitting on a perch.
One says to the other 'Can you smell fish'.

Haydock Show, 2017.

For those of us that didn't make it to Haydock this year, here is a picture of our beautiful club stand!.


Everyone I've spoken too that went to the show said it was very large and took some getting round, that's because we have quite a few members that aren't as young as they were I suspect!.
The other thing some mentioned were that there wasn't as many trade stands as they would have liked!,  there again you can't please everyone can you. I'm surprised that there are any these days with the Internet and prices lower than the model shops can keep up to And free postage from China!!.
....................................
Back on home waters this past week here are some of the boats and Members on view.
 



 


Camouflage working well?, my picture out of focus really but gives you the idea of the camouflage doesn't it?.

Look at the detail here


Another warship.


And One Metre's on the big Lake!.

...................................................................................

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a flat tyre!.

A man walks into a butchers shop and says "Have you got a Sheep's head" 
The butcher replied "No, its just the way I brush my hair".

Beauty comes from within,
From within bottles,jars, tubes and compacts!.

A bit of the big stuff with Big Al Breese's warship, HMS Ramilles.




He doesn't do small does he!.

My sex life isn't dead, but the buzzards are circling!.

It's been a bad day,
I put on a shirt and a button fell off,
I picked up my shopping bag and the handle fell off.
I'm afraid to go to the bathroom!,

If God had wanted us to go metric, wouldn't he have appointed ten apostles!.

New Commodore, July 2017.

Message from the Alan Breese.


 Thank you, Paul for your comments in the last post and wish you all the best for the future!.
Alan Breese.
...........................................
This week at the lake was quite busy, the weather certainly brings people out doesn't it.






One of John Goddards more sedate models , nice little mover til it stopped in the middle of the lake, don't see that very often do you!


Soon got it going again and then realised he had his tranny in the boat with him!.


Then had his boat pull him back to the landing stage where I helped him out of the rescue boat, and he carried on sailing!.
No flies on him!.

............................................................................................................

Age doesn't always bring wisdom, sometimes it arrives alone.

A word to the wise isn't necessary, its the stupid ones who need the advice.

If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it!.
