Notice Board     A place for notifying members of important matters
 

**** CORONAVIRUS ****

(revised 23.03.20  22:30)

This evening's statement by the Prime MInister declares that from tonight everyone must stay in their homes except for a few very specific reasons.  Sadly, attending model boat club meetings is not one of them. Accordingly all DSMBC meetings have been cancelled until further notice.  Please stay at home, keep warm, keep well, and keep in touch with each other by phone, email or via social media.


SPRING NEWSLETTER
Young Alan Gregory has published his Spring Newsletter.  You can read it here.
Many thanks to Alan for another bumper edition, and to contributors Andrea Povey, Nigel Dale,
Roger Atkins, Mike Fenton and Tony Draper.

CLUB 500 RACING
A group of club members led by Pete Thornton and Tony Draper have decided to buy and build
'Club 500' power boats.  Club 500 boat kits are available relatively cheaply, and they are simple and easy to build from a set of vac-formed plastic parts.  Currently eleven members have expressed interest in the project, and boat construction is in full swing. We've even seen some boats being tested; they look pretty impressive!  There's a good intro to Club 500 boats here.
