Barge Match – 28th April 2024

Just a reminder to the Barge skippers that the first Barge Match of the year will be on Sunday 28th April 2024 at Silvermere, starting at about 11.00am after the course has been laid.
So check the rigging and see if you can find a keel that fits, as well as the correct transmitter etc. and come along to race – 30″, staysails and bowsprit barges will have their own competitions. And I will try to find a suitable trophy for each class.

Let us hope that the weather is fine for us and not too wet or windy. Richard.

PMMC – Open Day – Silvermere Island Terrace Wednesday 10th April 2024 10.00 – 15.00

PMMC will have it’s annual open day this Wednesday 10th April 2024. The event will be held on the Island Terrace where we normally sail 10.00 – 15.00.

This event has been moved to earlier in the year so we can avoid weed problem that caused the cancellation of last year’s event. Weather permitting there will be a variety of different model boats on show, sail, electric, and steam. Come along and share the day with other members and modellers, and enjoy a sail on the lake.
All the usual facilities will be available, plus and coffee, tea and food are available to purchase from the Inn on The Lake restaurant.

We hope to see you there for a fun day!

Our Annual General Meeting is tonight. The chairman and committee will be there to take us through the financials, last year’s activity, and what is planned for the rest of this coming year. This is a chance for members to share ideas and to help in the running of the club.

Please note the start time of 7.30pm. Please be prompt as there is always a lot to get through.

Non slip matting for battery boxes etc.

I have a couple of metres of three different types and thicknesses. Let me know if you would like a piece and I will send you details of each type. I use it in battery boxes just to make sure they are nice and snug and don’t slide around.
