Excellent.  Have we booked the weather too?

I look forward to all our shows but in the interest of fairness, I'll try not to be too excited about this one just because it has a zero at the end of the anniversary year!

In all seriousness though, having that zero will give us a good lever for some great publicity - we should milk this for all we can.  That and it being the first post-apocalypse show too!

Hi All,
just an update to 'Our Show'.
We have now decided on our informal competition theme for this years show.

It is Falklands 1982.

This means we will have a separate trophy for any model, in any Genre (Aircraft, Vehicles, Ships, Figures, Diorama's, etc.) that fits into this theme. To assist judging, we will have some special markers to place alongside any model that an entrant wishes to be considered.

Thanks,
Kevin   
I hope my next is always better

Hi All,

It is with deep regret that the club has decided to cancel this years East Riding of Yorkshire Model Show 2022, it is a decision that has not been taken lightly.

Due to a number of Parties who had initially expressed interest in attending, but have sadly decided now to not attend due to health and financial reasons, made the show financially unviable for the club to continue to run.

All monies paid by those Traders who were still attending will be refunded in full, similarly any Club/SIG who had paid for additional wristbands will refunded in full.

We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from Club's/Sig's and Traders over the past years, and from the modelling family who have come along to the shows.

We hope you all understand that the decision to cancel was not taken lightly, and we waited until the last possible moment to cancel without being liable for the full cost of venue/equipment/table hire. 

A sad day for the Club.

Kevin

Yes, a sad day, but we were left with little real choice.
Thanks for all your work.
