Royal Greenwich Get Together 2019

Saturday 29 June 2019
Royal Arsenal
Woolwich

The first of the summer events for SELMEC was the Royal Greenwich Get Together. Set in Woolwich Arsenal, this is difficult to get to since you have to park so far away, so Chris, Tim and I hired a taxi to get there. That will be the last time we go by taxi; it was too expensive.

It was a very hot day and we did suffer a bit. I went out to get some ice cream; it nearly melted in the heat. Chris had another commitment and was away for most of the time. The event ran for a fairly long six hours (12 noon – 6:00pm). Public reception was better than last year probably because we were properly advertised this time.

Tim brought the Lightning Leap and Spanish Knight, along with the Make It With Meccano sets, and Chris brought a tug, narrow gauge locomotive, Daleks etc. My models were the Meccasaur, fire escape, and marionette.

After packing up we waited a whole hour for the taxi, and got home at about 8:00pm.
