    Lots of things to see and do for the whole family at this weekend event. The beam engines "in-steam" are spectacular. This was my first visit to what has become one of the main model sub events. (Bournville being the other one.)

    Many thanks to Roy for arranging the submarine side of things.

    A group from Gloucester & District Model Boat Club who are turning their hands to model subs. (Once they have stopped enjoying the sunshine!)

    Paul hauling a stack of subs (including mine- thanks). Roy's trolley system works very well if you need to arrive late or leave early.

    Roy is a very welcoming host. If you speak very nicely to him he may even salvage your lost sub (Excalibur like!) for you in a hail/thunderstorm on the Sunday! The owner was as you can imagine delighted.

    Roy, thanks for everything and see you again soon!

    I attended the second day of the event this year, traveling from Holland with my Swiss passenger submarine “Auguste Piccard”.

    I really loved the event and the welcoming and friendly atmosphere!

    Hi Freek,

    It was really good to meet you both at the event. In a conversation with your wife, she told me of your Holland model which I think you brought to Bournville?

    I'm sorry I forgot to take photos of your (unique??) model which sailed really well.

    Tot ziens!

    David
