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 Great Fire of London Secretary’s Challenge
Concluding the theme of anniversaries in our 40th year, for the September meeting our Challenge topic was the Great Fire of London which has its 350th anniversary in 2016.
Simply, our members could build anything connected with the Great Fire — maybe a building that was destroyed by the fire, or one that came after it. If they were stuck, then anything connected with fire would suffice.
