June 2017 Meeting
Saturday 17 June 2017
Falconwood Community Centre
This was one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members showed off their latest Meccano creations.
At around 2:00pm we had a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members were invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!
The Castles, Forts and Siege Engines Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge is an idea received from Chris Fry.
Our members could build a complete or part model of a castle or its defences — motte and bailey, drawbridge and portcullis etc. Or they could try siege engines such as siege towers, trebuchet or battering ram.
