The club calendar is now available.
The Annual General Meeting for the Model Boat Club of NSW Inc. will be held on,
MONDAY 24th JULY 2017
Auburn Tennis Club, 181 Chisholm Rd, Auburn, NSW, 2144 at 7.00 pm.
Please find attached the Membership Renewal forms due by 30th June 2017 and the AGM forms for 24th July.
Our Club Run Day for tomorrow January 29th is on but we cannot start engines or run boats until after 12 noon because of Rowing Selection Trials being conducted today and tomorrow morning.
However, we will try to utilise the time in the morning, to test setting up a retrievable buoy system for our Race Course. All helpers are welcome.
Hopefully, if successful, it will mean our Race Course can stay permanently set up and will only require one person and minimal time on a Run Day to release the retention system and have an accurate Race Course available for the day.
There will be no Club Committee Members attending this Sunday, however, the Pond is still available to any Members who would like to run their boats. Please be advised the Rescue Boat will not be available to retrieve any dead boats and swimming to retrieve a boat is not allowed.
If you are planning to be there please send a text message to James Kessing or reply to the facebook message
We had a good roll up yesterday for our Christmas Fun Day and once again, people who had a go at the Hot Lap, found out a lot about their ability to time their start effectively and how well their boat was setup for running tight on the buoys…….or not 🙂
Our Event Calendar for 2017 still has some dates waiting on confirmation by the SIRC, but dates for January and February are set. The dates are:
Jan 15th and 29th
Feb 12th and 26th
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Christmas and we’ll see you all in the new year, hopefully, with a retrievable buoy system installed to ensure we have an accurate Race Course available for all of our Run Days. This may require a few “working bees” so we will be looking for volunteers to help install and set up the course, watch this space!!
Apologies for the late notice, due to circumstances beyond the committees control our scheduled Race Day for this Sunday March 1st has been cancelled by the SIRC.
Please note. The practice day scheduled for tomorrow has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. Sorry for the inconvenience.
For anyone who is interested in what is going on with the lakes scheme.
I think everyone who attended yesterday’s Race Day, the last one for 2013/2014 season, will agree it was a fun day!
We were very lucky that rain early in the morning cleared once we were set up and turned into a perfect day with fantastic water conditions, glassy and not a hint of wind.
It was great to see Ian Whitton back at the Pond and on the Drivers Stand running his B Hydro, welcome back Mate!
X Hydro saw the “Back to the Future” singles running nicely. Looks like this class will be making a good come back, all you X Hydro guys better bring your “A” Game to the Winter Spec on 7, 8, 9, 10 August.
Boom Tuckwell managed to improve his attention span to run in the new engine in his A Hydro and by the end of the day the little rigger was pulling some wicked RPMs and awesome speed around the course, well done Mate.
Many thanks to Evan and Richard for getting the rescue boat set up and replacing the wheel bearings in the boat trailer. Also, thanks to the guys who helped with packing up at the end of the day
See you all in July on the 6th and 20th and let’s start the 2014/2015 season with big attendances, bring on Winter Spec!!!!
