January 2021 Meeting

Saturday 9 January 2021
12:00 noon – 5:00pm

Falconwood Community Centre
31–39 Falconwood Parade
DA16 2PG

This is one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members show off their latest Meccano creations.

Light refreshments will be available.

At around 2:00pm we will have a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members are invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!

You are welcome to come along to view the models and chat to our members. If you want to bring along a model of your own, we’d love to see it! Only if you attend our meetings regularly will you be asked to pay our annual subscription charge.

Please contact our Secretary Chris Warrell if you would like membership information, or just turn up at this meeting if you’re curious and are thinking of joining us.

The Ferdinand Porsche Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge commemorates Ferdinand Porsche, the Austrian-born German automotive engineer who passed away on 30th January 1951. Apart from founding the Porsche sports car company, he also designed the Volkswagen Beetle, the Tiger tank, and an electric wheel-hub motor.

The challenge is to build a model of something connected to Ferdinand Porsche.
