Items of Interest / Plans.
« on: February 04, 2019, 03:02:29 PM »
Our commodore has spent some time sorting out the vast amount of plans we have in the club for those who wish to scratch build. He has booked them up into 'types' making sourcing a bit easier. Anyone interested in a particular boat should ask our Commodore because he's got exceptional knowledge of what's available.

Club News and Events / Committee meeting- important Bullet points
« on: January 20, 2019, 03:24:44 PM »
Today the club committee met and a number of issues were discussed and resolved. A full set of minutes will be produced very soon in the members only section however the following need to be published now.;

1. Any member who wants to race any of his current boats in the stand off scale racing class needs to let either Dave Nell or Walter Snowden examine them as a matter of some urgency. Any member who intends to build a boat to enter the races must present to Dave or Walter the set of plans etc showing the boat they are going to build; after completion the boat will be examined again before it is allowed to race.

N.B. Please do not assume the boat as it was when you raced last season is acceptable in its current form.

2. A new time table for Yachts, slow boats and fast boats will be displayed in the clubhouse, on this web site and on the jetty during club hours.
These times must be adhered to and the committee will take action against any member who does not abide by them . Everyone wants to have fun at the club but having a boat damaged is not fun. Although each club member pays the same fees to join the club the committee has to try and facilitate water time to reflect the most popular activity and that currently is yacht sailing.
  The new times will commence Wednesday 23rd January.

 In accordance with the wishes of members as expressed at the 2018 AGM the race times on competition Wednesdays have been radically altered and the programme will start at 12.45pm (NOT 1.0pm) with Fast scale racing.

3. Dave Nell has been co-opted as Club Chairman until the next AGM. Chris Barnbrook remains as a committee member. 
N.B. Dave will also continue as Competition Secretary. 

Over the coming weeks Dave Nell intends to speak to members at the club making sure everyone is aware of what the committee decided, what the club is doing for the members and what is expected from the members. Hopefully we will have a good year of model boating in which everyone knows how the club functions during club hours. :) ;) 
Have fun, enjoy the hobby. :)

Politicians making a mess trying to sort out Brexit ought to visit our committee meetings, they may learn something and stop acting like muppets!    :)

 For the information of all members.   The clubs committee will be holding the first meeting of the year in the clubhouse scheduled for 11.30am Sunday 20th January. Members of the club who are not on the committee will be asked to vacate the building. Due to this being the first meeting of the year, and the first since the AGM, there are a number of important issues to resolve.

Items of Interest / Model boat magazine- my articles
« on: December 20, 2018, 10:03:06 AM »
A number of club members have commented on my four page feature about kneeler boats in Decembers issue of Model boats and asked what was next, well I have today been in communication with the editor and the plan is;   the next one will be about the water skier to be followed by converting the far east static models to Rc featuring Dixie and the Riva Zoom most of you have seen. That will be followed by how to make gas turbine powered boats work correctly featuring the Bluebird K7 a boat the editor has a thing for. That will keep me busy for some time.
 For a long time I wrote articles/features for marine modelling Magazine and its nice to be now contributing to the other UK based magazine.
I think most folk know Marine Modelling Mag ceased when Traplet publications went bust.

Club News and Events / weed 2019
« on: December 19, 2018, 07:25:39 PM »
No the government has not legalised weed smoking, yet ::)!  Its the green menace in our pond that's going to need some attention I will be taking a look in the first week of January to see what needs doing and get at it the following week. (depending upon the weather of course)
Volunteers will be needed, usual caveat- only volunteer if you are physically fit to do it and at your own risk. Protective gloves are available.

Club News and Events / Damage to boats
« on: December 18, 2018, 02:20:15 PM »
Recently there has been three incidents where damage was caused to slow boats by fast boats. This issue is currently being considered by the committee who will meet late January and it will be agenda item. Its likely the sailing time slots will be altered to reflect the main activity.

In the interim I will be monitoring carefully the use of the water, or in my absence another committee member, but one would hope that common sense could prevail; if there a lot of yachts on the water then fast boats ought not to be. That said one hopes that the yacht users don't try to monopolise the water. For the avoidance of doubt, slow electrically powered boats and steam boats can sail with the yachts. Scale boats that are fast will be allowed if the owner has demonstrated the ability to dive his boat correctly and its reliable.

The last thing we need is any ill feeling arising from damage to models so please be understanding about the need to have some kind of control.

Club News and Events / Thank you- membership
« on: December 18, 2018, 02:05:18 PM »
The committee thanks all members who have paid their club fees so promptly. Sadly we have had a couple of members who have decided not to re-new membership however several new members have joined recently. Total membership including three juniors will be a healthy 50.
On the 1st January 2019 the club membership records will fully up to date, data applicable to those who have left will not be included.

 A reminder- I have the only computerised(protected) membership list and one hard copy for day to day use. The chairman and treasurer also have a hard copy.

Club News and Events / put lipos to sleep
« on: December 15, 2018, 12:28:45 PM »
Bears, hedgehogs, door mice and tortoise all need to hibernate during winter well add to the list your lipo's unless you are going to use them.
Lipos don't like being stored for month's either fully charged or fully discharged. Most charges have a storage charge facility , use it to keep your expensive batteries up to spec for next year.
