1. We're having some problems with our Ely MRC website at the moment. Keith (our webmaster and Vice Chairman) migrated to a new website for his company (Anglia Property Preservation Ltd - which also hosts our Club website) but there have been a few technical glitches "with the Club bit". For now he's taken that bit down whilst he works out how to use some new software. We hope it'll be back up in a few weeks!
2. Our well know and very successful Ely Exhibition will be on 12th May 2012 and the theme in the second hall will be Railways of the World.
As some of you know I actually planned to retire from my second extended stint as Ely's Exhibition Manager immediately after the 2011 show....However, as luck would have it, due to some unfortunate personal circumstances, one of our key organizing members has had to "take a rest". So guess who has had to pick up the reins again! So the very capable Malcolm Hine (his second or third stint at it too), as well as myself, are the main duo running the 2012 show, assisted as always by the very able wider team at Ely MRC.
3. Baseboards for Wickham Market, our new OO prototypical roundly roundy and eventual successor to Thurston were completed a couple of months back. We're well into tracklaying at the moment. The N gauge group are also making excellent progress with their large layout and work on Ramsey OO is now mainly just little finishing scenic detail type stuff. Onwards and upwards!
That's it! We're off to Manchester Show with Thurston OO this weekend - so might see some of you there!
