March 2018 Meeting

Saturday 24 March 2018
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 No Right-Angled Parts Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge was concocted at the 2017 Hainault Hangout by Brian Leach and our Secretary. It was to build a model that doesn’t contain any right-angled parts in it. That means our members couldn’t use any Angle Girders, Flanged Plates, Trunnions, Angle Brackets or pretty much any other type of bracket except Obtuse Angle Brackets — members could use those, but bending any part into a sharp right angle would be deemed cheating!
