September 2022 Meeting
Saturday 10 September 2022
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!
At around 3:00pm Alan Wenbourne gave a talk on the subject of Radio Control and Meccano, sharing his experience of using two channel R/C in his models over the last 40 years. This was followed by a demonstration of the system components and their application to Meccano models.
The BBC Centenary Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge celebrated the centenary of the BBC, which was formed on 18th October 1922 as the British Broadcasting Company (it became a corporation in 1927).
Members built models on a subject that celebrates the BBC — John Gay got ahead of the game with his entry for the Football Secretary’s Challenge!
