Glasgow Richmond Model Boat Club
Auction held in the clubhouse
Richmond Park

We held our yearly auction on Sunday 18th Feb. 2018, postponed from last year due to the fact, the park was being turned into a building site.

Albeit a slightly scaled down affair it went well. People at auction

With people attending from Elderpark, Knightswood and as far afield as Kirkaldy and Liverpool. We even managed to gain a couple of new members as well.

Sadly, we had boats on sale, due to the passing away of one of our members, John Mitchel, thankfully, they all were sold, raising a sum for his widow Cathy.

The auction went at a reasonable pace, with a lot of items finding new homes, to the delight of both sellers and buyers.

Brian selling at autionOverall, it was a good day & we got two new members, David Burns, who found us via the website but could not make it till the auction was over and Frank Cooke from Liverpool who contacted Eddie re attending the auction again this year.

It seems that Eddie told him, he had arranged free transit over the border, for the day.

What he failed to mention, was it was one way only. Funnily enough, the cost of the Visa south, was 15, the same price as our membership. I don't know how he gets away with it!

New members are always welcome.The Pie Men

I'm under orders, not to go on about food this time but suffice to say, thanks to Wee Jamesy, there was some and it got eaten, as you can see.

A big thanks to all concerned in the smooth running of the day, the club is lucky to have you all.
