PostSubject: Display of Models   Mon Oct 31, 2011 4:21 am

Our local community house had a garage sale sausage sizzle to raise funds.
I asked to display some model to try to get some interest, pictures were taken and posted on the community web page, the pic's are better quality than I can produce.









It was a great day everyone liked the models and wanted to know how many hours it took to make each one.
Unfortunately no interest was shown in building or sailing quite disappointing really.
One 9yo said I want that one being the Seaport Tug not impressed when I said not for sale he came back a few minutes later with mum & dad who said if jnr wants it he can have it lol it took many NO's until it sank in and all three left disgruntled, perhaps I should have asked several hundred dollars.

Nice display. I expect you feel proud. cheers

I was at my boat clubs sail on the lake yesterday and found that I was getting more interest from the folks walking with their families than the other members. It was nice to talk with strangers and show my enthusiasm and felt I was sharing the hobby. Maybe their children will pick up on this and maybe one day , have a go their selves.

regards

Ken

Thanks Ken,
That's what we hope for getting through to youngsters and their parents.
Hobbies of any type are a dying breed with youngsters these day electronic gadgets over run everything.
I've had A4 posters seeking interest posted all over Ballarat for nearly a month with not one call or email, rather discouraging.

Hi Damien

You are right about kids having electronic everythings. That dad you mentioned would have been more sensible to have told his nine year old that he could only have a tug if they built one together. I think kids with hobbies learn to share and interact with others in a way that is far less self centred than in other areas of life and there are skills to learn that have an end product too. Give a kid something (anything) to have a sense of achiement about and they will carry it into other areas of their life. Anyway keep trying - maybe the local school would be interested in a talk (lessons like science woodwork metalwork - even researching the history for a project).

Regards, Norseman

Don't be jealous mate until I was 42 apart from head hair I had almost no body hair I had a straggly moustache that got trimmed 6 monthly they they found a pituitary tumour and all hell broke loose it wasn't until hormone replacement including testosterone that I grew face hair I hate shaving I only shave my moustache because I use a CPAP machine for sleep apnoea.
I wish I hadn't had a fear of needles from childhood as the tumour may have been found 20 years earlier.
On the other hand I believe we choose our life experience before we are conceived, that's my spiritualist view. Others will differ I'm sure.

Hi

Well spiritualism is getting a long way from this thread - but if you want to start a thread on it - I'd be happy to have an interesting chat. Meanwhile I'll try to figure out whether to blame the egg or the sperm for choosing this life experience pre conception? Conception ........ now there's a word I don't come across very often.

Full screen cropped the picture badly so I clicked on fit, it made it full height but not full width might change it the sails are a bit glarey.
Better do it tonight as I won't remember how to do it tomorrow.

Hi Damien

Your replying in a different thread mate - but I know what you mean. I thought the sails would be a problem and the image shape. Best to start with an image that suits the screen and has a little area that might be cropped. I also like clear areas to each side so icons don't spoil the image. At least the basic problem is solved .....Yes?
