This is one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members show off their latest Meccano creations.
Light refreshments will be available and our resident Meccano dealer Ted Muggridge will have new and used parts for sale.
At around 2:00pm we will have our Annual General Meeting of the committee, 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.
The Christmas Tree Decorations Secretary’s Challenge
This challenge from Chris Warrell is to make a Christmas tree decoration — if it can hang from a branch of your tree without sliding off, or pulling the tree over, then it’s a valid entry! You should have just taken your tree down when we have the meeting, so there should be no excuse for not bringing something.
Back in 2004 we had a Christmas Models Challenge, but there is a difference between the two. Only two models were brought back then, so we can hopefully do a lot better this time!
