    I went to this last year when it was a winter show. (See the entry in this section.)

    Well it is now being held in September - so no chance of snow like last year!?

    If you really want to sail your sub in a swimming pool then this has to be worth going to. If it is arranged like last year then you will get 2 half hour sailing sessions per day, with no entry fee as an exhibitor and a free lunch. So only your petrol money (groan) to find.

    The helpful organiser allows individual entries for even one session.

    You need to register on the website.

    It is worth remembering that the general public are watching (quite a good crowd last year.) so you need to put on a good show. (But actually the public's fascination with model subs seems to remain undiminished over the years.)

    http://www.themodelshow.co.uk/?page_id=1271

    Extract from website follows:
    "Again our maritime section is open to individual entrants, as a static display and/or preferably as operating models in the swimming pool in one or all of the four sessions over the weekend. Maritime modelers wishing to exhibit should contact us via this websites ‘email button’ to receive full details and an application form, entries are upon a first booked basis and close at 22.00hrs Thursday prior to the show!"

    I sent off my entry form some months ago - but no reply. But I have just had a reply from Mark today. There will probably be a couple of us there on the Sunday. If you would like to go, I suggest that you contact Mark as an independent modeller. Exhibition Manager- Mark Henshaw, e-mail: markhenshaw@tiscali.co.uk…

    It was a good event with very useful (to us) pool access. See the photos etc in "Pictures of events."

    I just thought it would be useful to make some notes here about next year's show.

    I spoke with Mark the Organiser at the show and asked him about my entry form not being replied to. He apologised and said that they had had server problems and a lot of emails went astray. (It happens!)

    He did reply to emails from Paul and Me but only a the last minute.

    He stressed that there would be a show next year with the same setup.

    So if you want to sail your sub in a swimming pool this remains a useful and low cost option (only petrol - they even provide lunch) so I suggest that you put in an individual entry a month or so before September 2019.
