 Notice to Members
Annual Membership Fees
Fees are due now
The new rules imposed by the Blacktown Workers Club require us to align our financial year with that of the club. Hence annual fees are due and payable in December for the 2017 year.
It is a Club requirement that your Workers Club card must be sighted and currency checked before we accept payment of your Boat club fees. Hence we cannot accept payment of your fees till after you have renewed with the Workers Club.
This means that the only means of payment is in person, at the lake and to one of the committee members.
A master list of members will be available at the container for your Club currency to be marked off and a receipt issued for your Boat club fees
Unfortunately we are only able to accept yearly payments. Those of you with Five year Workers subscriptions will just need to show that card each year to confirm its expiry date. If you have a five year card you can of course pay your Boat club fees at any time.

 After the unfortunate cancellation last year,

Port Macquarie Scale Model Exhibition 2017

The 2017 Exhibition will take place on the 8th and 9th July

As you may know, exhibitors are not paid a fee to exhibit, but Panthers Club usually subsidises lunch for bona-fide exhibitors on
Saturday and Sunday.
As usual, exhibitors must make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation.

If you would like to exhibit at the 2017 exhibition, please let me know:
1. what category of display?
r/c boats - outdoor
r/c boats - indoor
r/c cars and trucks - outdoor (to be confirmed)
r/c cars and trucks - indoor
r/c aircraft - indoor
railway layout (what scale and what dimensions?)
scale models (ships, armour, aircraft, motor vehicles, figures, Sci-fi, etc)
Vendor goods (what category?)
2. how many exhibitors in your group will display models?
3. How many tables do you require, if it is an indoor exhibit.
You will know from past exhibitions that indoor space is strictly limited, so I will attempt to cater for regular exhibitors in line with
past arrangements. Others will be accommodated as space permits.

At this stage there is no guarantee that your exhibit can be accommodated. As soon as details are returned to me and collated,
I will let you know the outcome.

If I receive responses promptly, then I plan to finalise exhibitors and space by 30 April.
I trust that is fair.
If your buddies have not received this email, it is because I do not have their email address. Please ask them to contact me
if they wish to exhibit.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sydney Model Boat Show

has be deferred for now due to double bookings



Old shows Below

Port Macquarie 2016 Model Show

at Panthers Port Macquarie – Settlement City, 1 Bay St
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Last week I was informed that renovation of the Panthers Club auditorium will start earlier than anticipated, making the venue unavailable for the planned 2016 event. Panthers Club have been keen to  provide other available rooms for our use, but that would mean a disjointed exhibition, on two levels, and with lesser overall space. (We already have 90 tables booked and should easily require the same space as last year). Naturally I am disappointed to cancel after all our efforts so far, but having examined the options, I am letting you know as soon as I can that the event will not be held this year. However I am looking forward to returning next year in the renovated premises, possibly in August (date to be confirmed). I hope you will also look forward to the 2017 event, with more time to prepare for it!
