    Model Boat Convention, Haydock Park (Near Warrington) 24/25 August 2013

    Hi to all AMS members,

    I've already contacted members who go to this show regularly, but just a reminder to new/old members etc.etc. that you are invited to come along and display your models (completed or still in bits!)

    We have been going to this one for about the last 5 years. It is a very well organised, "proper" public model show with all types of model boats, prizes etc. Lots of Traders also and well timed for buying for winter projects.

    We always have a stand and there is  a small pond with enough depth for submarines, although the main emphasis is on stand display rather than wet demonstrations.

    It is held in a number of halls at the racecourse  - so everything (catering) etc. is to a high standard but all reasonably priced.

    It is held in the "South of the North" and it is right by the M6 motorway.

    Please pm me if you are interested in going and you can ask me about it if you are also going to Norwich. (And by the way it is not an either/or for these shows they are both different and complementary)

    See you!

    David F

    Hi Gingyer,

    Look forward to that.

    I admire your warships every year. Bring your S class over to our stand for a visit!

    new member here, I have been asked to display my Huntsman 28, and the Orca on St Helens Model Boat Club Stand, thanks to Rich I now have an unbuilt mmb subsonic, my first sub attempt, which will sport a dorsal fin, ( to go with you know what!) will come and say hello so you have a face to all the questions that will be coming once the build starts!

    Will prob only be there Sunday though due to work,

    I expect to be spending money with MMB if he is there, !!

    Hi Paul,

    I think MMB is always there.

    Now I realise rather more what you are up to with the dorsal fin. The Subsonic should do the job well since it is a simple sub. You will need to keep it motoring to keep it dived!?

    Anyway more of this discussion on the Sunday. See you on the stand.

    Just a quick message to those who have let me know they will be exhibiting at the stand.

    I haven't received the tickets yet but I will get them to you by first class post as soon as I get them.

    Thanks to everyone who attended the show and the organisers for another very fine show.
    I have uploaded some photos to my photobucket but I seem to have difficulty getting the links. (Richard - let me know if you can access the Haydock Park Photos - I have had to post an old link - photos and me!!)

    http://s1079.photobucket.com/user/david_forrest1/library/Photobucket%20Desktop%20-%20SAMSUNG/Norwich%202013

    If you find the photos, some explanation - the AMS stand, Chris B's great new hovercraft, some fantastic models from the Russian Modeller's on the next stand.  (I only mentioned the cold war once but I think I got away with it!)
