The Model Boat Convention 2011
« on: March 17, 2011, 16:06:38 »
Hi All
Well its that time again to announce this year’s show, which will be at a different venue, as

" Due to completely unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances the Show has to leave Birchwood Park. The owners are redeveloping the restaurant in such a way that the available space will be considerably reduced. However We have been extremely fortunate in finding an alternative venue a mere seven miles up the road at Haydock Park Racecourse. There is ample parking and the whole area is on the ground floor, mainly carpeted and with a good atmosphere".

So other than the change of Venue its Business & Pleasure as Usual.

Currently our only problem is the provision of sailing water. We will have the ‘kids’ pool as used at Birchwood, and are investigating the provision of a larger temporary pool, as unfortunately there is no natural water available at the venue. We will advise you of progress on this issue ASAP

With this show getting ever nearer

The “Model Boat Chandlery” will again operate to satisfy the needs of modellers wishing to sell either their model boats or indeed any associated items at a hobby trading post.

The goods will be sold on the following basis, the choice of the options being left to the modeller: -
 
A daily display fee of £3 an item, whether the item is sold or not (payable in advance each day).  Items less than £10 in value = £1

Please find a downloadable form here...

The Model Boat Convention is a non-profit organisation, run by Volunteers. From the excess funds generated from the 2010 show we were able to make a donation of £500 to the RNLI, £300 to the MacMillan Nurses, and £200 to the Hoylake 1810 Memorial Fund This was to raise funds for a Statue to commemorate the 1810 lifeboat disaster at Hoylake.
