Nanaimo Show March 26-29
« on: March 25, 2009, 06:33:45 »
Just received the Mid Island Bulletin via our club this morning to see that their event is THIS WEEKEND!

March 26-29, 2009 - Country Club Centre
MVIMM show.

This little blurb is all I've seen - anyone care to post a little more info - both Victoria members and a few from Burnaby would bring boats over but I certainly snoozed on this event!

Hi Mike

I'm disappointed that they didn't circulate info earlier - usually I hear well before this in the past. Put boats in their display at least 5 years running - perhaps they are tired of the same old unfinished boats!
I'd have to dust them off tonight and scrub a day's work on short notice to go up - then there is the pick up on Sunday plus there is Curling on at Bear Mountain!
Will know later today - hope one of their members confirm this though.

Our club president, Kaj, phoned me yesterday and mentioned that he thought there was a show this weekend over in Nanaimo. I try to let everyone know at this end if I receive a notice. Mike, I have a note re your Maple Bay venue in our April BAMM club newsletter plus. Was out on the pond this morning, just a beautiful day.

In trying to find out some additional information - someone dropped the ball!
It was in their bulletin but with all these forum sites - an extra blurb would have done wonders.

Well - disappointed that no club member in Nanaimo posts in here!
I overloaded my guys at work and snuck off to Nanaimo with a load of boats - the show must go on!
Three or four long time keen members were happy to see more boats!
Here are a few photos - the show runs until Sunday afternoon at Country Club Mall just north of Nanaimo - support it if you are near -

Hope to get up there tonight!
Thinking..I'll print off a few Model Tug Forum 'Front Pages', for circulation there :) :)
I see Mike Dean's 'Island Champion' is there (just a bit of the stern showing) and a couple of Alf's tugs as well.

Kim:  Thanks for the note in your BAMM newsletter!! :) :)

Cheers

There is quite a cross-section of boats - I tried to catch a few different ones this time. Some fantastic detail on the naval ones there. Will be driving up to Nanaimo again Sunday to pick mine up, will take a few more - still learning how to take better photos under the bright lights of the mall.

Went up yesterday to retreive my boats - took a few more photos and reminded the guys to have a look at this site - not all knew about it. Will post photos when I can get a few minutes to sort them out.

I reckon tugs53 must have missed the trip.....He did say he was being kept in with a bottle or two, because of the wind.....(External I believe!!) >:D >:D
