Druxey right now it is looking like the May period as you had earlier suggested. I do not have a count yet as we did not have a quorum at our meeting yesterday. I will have a tentative headcount in the next few weeks.

Three members of the Model Shipwrights of Niagara (Ontario, Canada)_ travelled to Fairport  (Rochester) NY, USA this weekend to attend the seminar entitled Museum Standard Requirements of Ship Models presented by a passionate Carlos Montalvao of Portugal.

 

Photos can be seen on our club website at      https://modelshipwrightsofniagara.weebly.com/blog

Scroll down to July 2018

 

The seminar was organized and hosted by the local club Model Shipwrights of Western New York.

Attendees were encouraged to bring their models in for show and quite a number obliged.

 

Two members of our club gave a short presentation of their models 1) The Hayling Hoy and 2) HMS Ontario.

The HMS Ontario presentation was augmented by Jim Kennard, one of the discoverers of the wreck of the HMS Ontario in Lake Ontario (2008).

 

It was a well organized and very informative event!

 

BZ to the Model Shipwrights of WNY!

Well done.

Alan, Ray and David it meant a lot to us that you attended and participated in the day's events. Your participation rounded out the session in "bristol fashion"! I sat in the session and just marveled at the content and enthusiasm of the group at large. And the models were a sight to behold. In reflection I was thinking at the time "what energy can be generated by like minded people with similar interests and passion can be"! It was a treat to have Jim Kennard there as well.

What are the odds of things aligning so near perfect. 🤔

 

If the flag had been considerably smaller it would have been a massive head scratcher moment.

 

I had three photos and they all had the same alignment issue.
