Posted on behalf of Stavros.

The Blackpool Model Boat show will be held on October  22/23 at the Norbreck Castle Hotel in Blackpool.....

The show is being run by Iain Lewis of Component shop and Me....and hosted by the Blackpool Model Boat Club

Right then the Hotel has recently spent a considerable amount of money on the bedrooms and believe you Me having seen them they look 100% better,new Beds,New carpets and being repainted....they are in the process of renovating the whole hotel....

Yes the lighting issues of the past look like it has been resolved with new lights gone up in the hall.....WE have already pointed out the Main issue and that is of course the Gents and they have promised us faithfully to do something about it....I Have a cunning plan !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right then a little insight into this years show....YES of course it is and allways will be a boat show......and here lies the BUT......as you can imagine booking such a venue is rather expensive and as the list of traders are getting smaller and smaller with retirements we have to look elsewhere.

So our plan is to invite Radio controlled Cars,Trucks and Tanks to display their wares and also traders....we rather hope a truck club might be able to set up a roadway to show off the trucks...........And poss the cars...let alone a Tank Display.....if anyone on here knows of any clubs in this field then PLEASE let me or Iain Know....our ultimate goal is to have planes and railways as well to make it into a Boat and Model show............

All Info will be on our Website

http://www.blackpoolmodelboatshow.co.uk

This is already live and will be updated as soon as Info becomes available.......obviously we will have a traders and Club booking page .

We also Have a Fb page

https://www.facebook.com/groups/226342181059519/

Please feel free to link both the website and Fb page to your clubs as more we spread the word the better the show will be.

Adverts for the show will be in the Mags as soon as poss
