A strong team of ten members from Clevedon MBC turned out to set up our part of the exhibition. We unloaded Mike Mayhew’s trailer and set to erecting tables to display our 21 exhibits. I was fortunate enough to have a small folding table that was perfect to show off the seven Footy’s I had brought for the occasion.
There were lots of trade stands mainly selling plastic kits with exhibitors coming from as far as Birmingham, St Athens (Wales) and Plymouth to display their wares we were the only RC sailing club there but that did not matter we had a very interesting range of craft that attracted lots of attention.
We also got photographed by the local paper with Mike Mayhew holding his Junk Footy next to another much larger Junk and myself explaining a swing rig to one of the visitors.
I also had a photograph of me holding “PussyFoot” in front of the by Barrie Stephens the editor of MMI so the footy stand may well end up in there too.
Next weekend is the South West Ship Show at Portishead so I am going to have to put some additional stands together to display the boats better.
My thanks go to the Clevedon MBC members who all stayed to the end and helped pack up back into Mike Mayhew’s trailer.
