Start of Season Show

6th May, 2012

What a show that was, the sun shined on us for most of the day.
This brought out the people of Oatlands & surrounding areas, as well as modellers from near & far.

Crowd enjoying the Show
For a change, we tried running the days sailing to a program, so that all like minded modellers could sail together, it was a great success. Highlights included the Fast Electrics, Warships & every ones favourite, the Wee Nips. When I say everyone, perhaps that should read some or maybe a few. All I can say is I enjoyed seeing them float gracefully in the light wind conditions, all 15 of them.

The club engineers had a table for the first time, showing their excellent workmanship. This was well received, with a steady flow of questions being answered all day.

Must say, I'm getting increasingly worried about our Chairman, Brian Cowell, Brian with his yellow duckwho turned up with his rubber ducks! Someone else brought a scabby swan, which a member of the public was seen trying to feed!

A visitor from another club said, this is the best show I've ever been to, he must get out more, To be honest, there was a buzz about the park today.
This was the first show we've had, since the club got renovated &  since the Scottish Government built the new "club off ramp" from the M74.

The tombola & kitchen were, as usual, well run by Derek, James, Agnes & Pamella, our thanks go to them all.

If our other shows, this year, are half as good, this will be a year to remember. 

Best of all, looks like we got seven new members.
