    Yes it is at the NMM Greenwich, and we had so maney boats that we had to have some on the ground, and when any one was sailing the ones that were on the deck were placed onto the tables to fill the gaps.

    I never knew that we exhibited there. A very nice venue.
    We seem to have had so many venues in the past.
    What changed? (Model submarines ceased to be a novelty??)

    We used to be at a show practically every weekend...Bewl Bridge Reservoir opening day (on the Kent/Sussex border) was a huge show, never repeated though. We did a show at a gravel pit near Rye (Sussex coast) that was a one off, fabulous day. Another show we went to was at Crowbourgh Model Boat Club home water (Sussex)...another one off, more's the pity, that was a great place to sail subs. One of the few places where it was possible for a sub to enter a steering course and stand a chance of getting round the course.

    Parham Manor House (West Sussex)was another show we attended, now defunct, as is Plumpton Race Course (Sussex), Ardingly County Show (Sussex) was a great three day show we used to do.

    It seems nowadays that model show organisers only cater for tugs that turn on their own axis, or warships with many operating accessories. Model submariners don't seem to figure on their invitation lists any more.

    Perhaps we are all too old and rickety nowadays to drive half the length of the country for a show!

    I think that is it. Mature members and mature technology!
    I was reading an article by Nick Burges?? in the SubCommittee magazine archive about a weekend trip to a French show. Made me tired just reading about it!
    I think David J has mentioned going on something like this.

    Yes back in them old day's, we had three shows at the MNN the first one Bernie went to the BBC for a Blue Peter Show, he spent all day there all for just three min's of air time and the called his Type 7 a British "S" class, still he did get his B/P badge not that he used it much,

    The 2nd one our Dave Austin was on the working committee :affraid:

    One year we had 14 shows, that was when every one said it was just to much so we went back to just the main shows.

      Current date/time is Tue Jul 23, 2024 3:49 pm
