Meeting - 9th July '08

Postby Dave Westall » Wed Jun 18, 2008 8:41 pm

All GnOrfolkers are invited to a 'Grice' at the emporium of kits and bits situated at Rockley Bottom Towers.
Bring your latest bits and pieces to show what you are doing. (One of these days I'll join in with that one again :roll: )
Your hosts for the evening are the indefatigable Ralph (aka 'Stair-runner')
and that champion brewer of teas and coffees - Janet.
Usual times for those who arrive at different times :lol:

Dave
May your wheels never rust.

12 feet? that's a massive amount of space. :shock:

Looks like I'll have to pull my finger out a bit and get something done to fill up part of the table. :wink:

I may have a piece of rolling stock due to be painted that will actually fit around Katham House, I must get round to getting it painted over the next few days.

I may :?: :?: :?: have worked out what finish to add to the canal building which as you saw is a long way from being finished May use pebble-dash :lol: :lol:
Hope to see you all'
Barry, It may be worth while working out what models and help you will need for the show. This will allow the cob-webs to be removed and things checked out.

Well, we have a 12 foot table (2 off 6 foot tables actually) to fill, I'm taking Katham House and Higgins & Co and the 7mm Scale Box Layout, so that's about 7 feet, less if I overhang the edge. Jon is bringing along at least one Gnine layout (or two?), so we can fill the other space with models. I'm planning to build a display module, probably 2 foot long and four steps high.

We will have food and parking for three, and as there has been a "slight" change of plan/location due to a mix-up with the marquees, we are in a nearby school which has two large halls. We will be in the canteen near the bacon rolls and opposite the LARGE O scale layout. There is going to be a private bus running between the station and the school.

I take it that Jon and myself will be two out of the three places, so we can sort out who can be the third person (doesn't have to be there for the whole day) and what models we want to display and what information we want to have on display.

Have a think about what models you would like to show and the information that you'd like to go with them and we can decide at the get-together what we can display.

It's possible that I may be able to come to the show but probably only as a visitor due to the impossibilty of arriving on public transport before the show opens.

A good night was had at Rockley Bottom Towers on Wednesday :D (thanks Ralph & Janet) Two layouts were running, one was Katham House, the other was Jon's Gnew Gnine layout (a little cracker!! :D ) A certain host's diesel and wagon (fitted with Kadees Gno less!! :shock: ) spent a while lapping the circuit :wink:

Dave turned up trumps with some precision engineered items that will be incorporated into some future layouts produced by members of the group, thanks Dave :D

Nick brought along his work in progress, looking good Nick :D

The Etheral Emrys made an appearance at the gathering, proving that he does have a physical prensence and doesen't exist only in cyberspace :D :D (well he can't because of power supply problems 8) )

Jon
The "little Gem" you produced on the meeting night took the interest of us all. The great layouts produced by you and Barry because of the size look complete, even though little bits of tweeking can still be added.

Don't go any smaller :!: :!: I do not think that I can see any smaller than the one you have just produced
