Hi All
Over the last weekend my club displayed at the Annual Cheshire Steam fair and was blessed with reasonable weather on the saturday and glorious weather on the Sunday i.e. It did not rain..  I have attached a link to the photos taken, a few tugs as well as other boats plus a few items from the show it's self..

I also in a joint project with another forum member arty69uk tested out a camera with waterproof casing on a tug tow, and although we were limited by the 16 * 16 ft pool obtained  some good footage, and hope to upload these once I work out how to edit said footage.

It was a good show , considering we were at the bottom corner of the field we had a continual stream of people not to mention kids and a few adults wanting to have a go with the some of the models we put out for them to use. Was my first full display I have attended and had a great time, plenty of bits & Bob stalls around.
Originaly I had just ubnder 300 photos but whittled them down to 215.

Great mix of photos. Interesting to see that the pond is set back from the public a bit - we had a pond up recently at a function - little and a bit older hands managed to grab a couple of boats and damage them before members could react in a discreet way. Have to convince our members to put up a bit of a buffer between fingers and pond.

I would recomend that you do , every now and again we took the play boats out so that some of the larger and faster models could be displayed , some of the props could easily hurt a child and that could be costly to the club, I took a few underwater shots while messing around with a new camera which shows the speed of some of the boats..hope to get these posted soon.

Have added some vidoe footage on to utube, Nothing spectacular I'm afraid but just a bit of fun, testing out a new 5mb Camera with waterproof cover from Tesco's for 29.97, was not originaly impressed with the practice indoor pictures but these were not to bad , will be adding more as I upload them (seems to take ages) !!.
