      An Update on some past Events..     

Good day Members,
At the lake today with a few strange looking people, hard to make out who they were with their masks and lumber jackets on but they all seamed harmless.

The AGM were a very uneventful event with the committee being returned unchallenged. Must mean that the current committee have been doing something right.
Now with the AGM now over we look towards the next couple of events for the the club.
1. 4th. September, We have the Sunshine Coast Model Train and Hobby Expo at Caloundra Churches of Christ, Dicky Beach.
2. 12th. September, Interclub Sail and Scale Regatta and Market, SCMBC.
While you remember go and jot both of the dates down and will hopefully see you there for a chat.
Stay tune for future events and news.
Events will be run in accordance to Covid-19 Requirements at that time..
Happy Voyages, I'm here watching from the Wharf...

Good day Members and Model Mariners,
D-Day Interclub Regatta and Market Day, 6th of June, 2021.
What a great day had with fellow members and model mariners from the SCMBC and 2 other clubs in attendance.
Fantastic number of members and their models flowed through, throughout the day..
One of the best regattas for some years and great to see so many members of the public come down and be interested in what we do for enjoyment every week..
A big thank-you to all involved in putting on the day and thank-you everyone who attended and made it so great..

Hi Members and Model Mariners,
From what I have heard the afternoon evening sail was very good with a good number in attendance, the only complaint was the temperature.
With a good afternoon breeze lead to some good sailing and as the sun was leaving the breeze died leaving magic water for some lights on scale activity.. Would have loved to been there for that event but was able to brave the Sunday morning with a good breeze building all morning.
Great weather for having a chat.. Some sailors remaining til early afternoon. Hope you had a good time guys..
The D-Day Regatta is only 2 weeks away now.
Keep an eye out for some articles in the Sunny Coast Times and the Sunshine Valley Gazette.
So look forward to catching up with everyone for a great day of boating and stories.
Sittin' here watchin' out from the wharf..

Hi Members and Model Mariners,
We had our Schooner and Square Rigger social day today and what a brilliant day of sailing with classic vessels it was. The weather was a talking point through out the day but I think everyone how attended had a great day. Looking forward to the next one. Lets hope that the next schooner day is not to far away.
We had 12 vessels turn-up today and what a wonderful sight to see most of them on the water at the same time.
================================================
I believe that the Triple 'S' Naval day went over quite well. Work got into my way, so was not able to attend.
Jason and Garry manage to get down for the Sunshine Coast and the reports I heard they had a great day, even though Gary missed out on a vessel or to.
The constant posts across the day made me very envious.
================================================

An Update on some past Events..

The Triple "S" MBG at Boondall held an Inter-club Sail Boat Day on Saturday, 13th of February and it was well attended.
Those how attended had a great morning of sailing. Very big group of people there and great weather if you weren't a sailor. There were several tugs and scale models on the water for most of the day. Better sailing conditions arrived latter on the day.

The 1st event at SCMBC took place on Sunday 14th of March with an Inter-club Scale, Sail and Market Day Regatta.

Well the first SCMBC regatta for 2021 went over pretty good with a large number of members, guests and visit on the day. Great weather was a bonus with an enough breeze for the sailors and calm enough for the scale vessels. A good display of vessels and a couple of cars for sale on the day, not sure of how many changed hands but beleave some people were very happy.

Nice to see some old favorites and a couple of new and almost completed vessel there for show and tell. I believe lunch went down well and all had a great day at the lake.

The next Inter-club day will be a Naval Regatta on Saturday 24th. of April, at Boondall with Triple 'S' MBG being the host for the day. There is usually a Buy Swap and Sell on the day also.

Hi Everyone attached is a link to a short video Brian did with his drone on the first Wednesday of sailing at Marshall's Lagoon. 

  Certainly a pretty place to sail, even if there wasn't a lot of wind on the day, perfect for the scale power boats.
