November and December Meetings 2018

Posted by Peter Sutton, Wednesday, 14th November 2018 @ 2:45pm

  • Reminder to all members that the NOVEMBER meeting is the annual competition.  Please bring models along that have won their class at one of the January 2018 to October 2018 meetings.

    Please get to the meeting early, and place you model on the tables promptly, as we have a busy evening of judging, and the competition secretary needs extra time to tot up all the scores and announce the winners on the night.

     
    Please can all 2017 Trophy winners return the Trophies to the competition secretary at the November meeting.

     
     
    The December meeting is the Christmas Social and Award ceremony.   Please bring along the models that have won their class at the November meeting!

     

    The two memorial awards will run at the December meeting:

    • The Edgar Brooks Memorial trophy for the  best Spitfire model – so please bring along any Spitfires.

     

    • The Christmas Plate – this year the theme is “100”, so we look forward to a diverse array of models on this theme.
