New buttie wagon at the lake!.

Today at the lake, whilst the Lake-side Cafe is closed for refurbishment, we went to the Garden centre at the side of the Cafe, as we had heard on the Grapevine that they had a new buttie wagon installed in the car park there.
Purely in the interest of the members, if you believe that you will believe anything, seating in the garden centre gazebo where you can order hot or cold food off Maggie or go straight to the wagon and order there yourself, there is also a Gazebo and seating there!.

Entrance through the garden centre or off the road at the back of the Cafe.

  


This was the menu I was given and told the wagon was permanent, but as always as they say ,
'Use it or lose it'
It was said that this menu would be reviewed once the Lakeside had opened and put up their price list, as you will have heard the rumours, they are going up market and you might be paying for it! .


Well that's the news for today, and not bad news hey.
A bit of healthy competition.

Did you hear about the cannibal that was eating his mother-in -law and she still didn't agree with him.

The two cannibals that were eating a clown and one said to the other does his taste funny to you?.

Wednesday at the lake,14.6.2017.

This Wednesday I accompanied Bob Abell to the lake to video two of his latest builds, The Silver mist a design by Vic Smeed and his controversial build Lady Joyce a design by Paul Thomason but with Bob's four 850 motors, as the propulsion, coupled to two props.
There were a couple of other members there with their yacht's as well.


A RTR 

And a Comtessa.

This is Lady Joyce 

And this is Silver Mist, as said a design by Vic Smeed though Bob doubled the size!

Unfortunately The Silver Mist broke down shortly after launch and you'll never guess why, we found a Poo Bag wrapped round the prop shaft. I'm all for cleaning up after your dog but to dispose of it in the lake is not on!. 

The smoker!.


On the day a friend at the lake, gave us this old but well kept book, quite apt on the day we thought!.



So after the rescue it's on with the sailing of Lady Joyce.

Model Boat Magazine, forum!.

Noticed the other day that on their forum they were wondering when one of the subscribers reached the 100,000 views what would happen, because the column wasn't wide enough!.
  Sounded a bit like the Millennium when people said all the computers would crash out because the PC'c wouldn't recognize the 00 for 2000 year!. 
But then the forum subscribers realised that our member Bob Abell with his build of the "Vintage Gentleman's cruiser had reached 106,000  Last year!!. so that solved the problem.
So our "Bob the Abell" has put our Club in the record book again, like me he doesn't sail much these days, but a great recorder and advertisement for the club!.
