March 2020 Virtual Meeting

Saturday 28 March 2020
Online

Due to the coronavirus pandemic this meeting was cancelled and was held ‘virtually’ online via Google Hangouts.

At around 2:00pm we had our annual general 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 Mug Holders Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge was an idea from Cathy Warrell. She was inspired by a Lego mug she saw online. This mug was in one piece (so not actually made of Lego) but you could attach Lego parts to it — and still drink out of it!

The Challenge had to be adapted somewhat for Meccano. The idea was to construct a mug holder for either a single use paper cup, a multi-use Keep Cup or any other cup without its own handle. If members could bolt some useful parts to it, and still be able to drink out of it, so much the better!
