Exhbition 15th January - Beaminster, Dorset

Postby Dad-1 » Wed Jan 05, 2022 4:44 pm

The Bridport & District MRC is having it's annual January exhibition at Beaminster on Saturday 15th January.
I've not confirmed on here until very late in the day because of the constantly changing Covid situation.

We will not have any refreshments, or food available as these are more involved than the basic displays.

I shall be there running the Green Frog Brewery shunting layout as constructed in the Layouts thread.
We will have a club trade table and Rod will have the usual trade table running. I will add all the layout details
later because as yet I don't have the full detail myself.

Opening 10.00 until 16.00 Hrs with our usual low price entry of £3 for this event.

Hope the exhibition goes well, will you be doing a writeup for those that live to far away to attend?

Hi Journeyman,
I might just do that ?
Once I was too busy with everything that goes on with being on the committee. Now I'm free.
All I have to do is remember to charge the little camera's batteries.
Trouble is I know things that should have been done, but haven't. Now as just an ordinary
club members should I tell them to date and print a new risk assessment for the event ?
Why haven't we done any advertising, why don't I know exactly what will be there ?
NO, NO, NO. No longer my job, I shall just play trains.

Enjoy the day, Geoff.

Been there being a Committee Member. It's when they ask you to come back the 'Shall I or not' begins. :lol:

Meanwhile, run trains at leisure. :D

Ordinary club member, this is proof you were aware of this requirement. 'Prod' the responsible party to perform and document on the Friday evening (?) set up: that way nothing will go awry on the Saturday when the public are in.

And have a good time.

Well we had a great day, not crowded, but a busy feel and enough coming to more than cover hall costs
at an adult entry of £3, children free.
That request for some pictures, well I scuttled around as things were still being set-up. John, perhaps
our oldest active member was struggling to get his 009 layout working. he should be dead having had a
rupturing Aorta a couple of years back and had a following stroke. We let him come because he wanted
to - enjoy what you can while you can !!!!!

Image

Green Frog Brewery 'OO' as in the build threads. For visitors to drive (Children) mostly built by and supervised by myself

Image

Axe Valley Mill 'O' with sound, a long layout, part of Ken's massive Chard Junction

Image

Shillingsford 'OO' sound, the station end where the run-around, Kadee operated, is the focus - Ron's handiwork

Image

Ghost Mountain River 'OO' A winter sports scene from our lady member Shirley.

Image

West Bay 'OO' Bridport Club's main layout here looking down to cattle dock end. Any visitor to West Bay should recognise that.

Image

Limington End 'OO' With small sound locos, even a DS48 with sound van. One of our friends from Yeovil

Image

I think that's enough for you to get the feel, better times are coming.

Good work. Small is beautiful would be the appropriate phrase to cover this; where the larger events are hampered, you can overcoem the obstacles.
