  2. The time has come... It is with some regret that the Fareham & District MRC announces that we have decided to pull the plug on the 2020 Fareham RailEx that was due to have taken place over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th October 2020. If you read the details that I have shared as personal views in this thread you will realise the complexity that exhibition organisers have to grapple with and in the end, faced with having to commit a chunk of money to the advertising budget for display ads, we reluctantly concluded that we couldn't balance the uncertainty against the
  3. Posted to Modelling Musings and Miscellany because i can't see a better category to put it in. I looked at Club and Society Info but wasn't sure if it fitted there because I'm not intending to push out info about our Club, rather to share thoughts with other Clubs (or individuals) about how we keep people sane during the approaching lockdown and maybe help or prompt other Clubs to look at what they could do. Happy if you want to move it Andy. What Fareham have done so far; for some years we have run a Google group as a mailing list for official communications, calling for
  4. Hi Barry Sorry, I'm afraid I don't spend enough time on this forum; I've only rocked up here now because I'm looking to start setting up for our next exhibition in October 2020. I'm consciously doing this under our Club login as well (rather than as the Duty Druid) as this is advice we were given early on in my tenure as Club Chairman and Exhibition Organiser. Firstly, the "Bible" for this stuff is a publication known as the Purple Guide for Event Management - but you won't find the definitive answer you seek I'm afraid. Our experience: When I first starte

    The Fareham RailEx 2020 which was due to take place on the 3rd & 4th October 2020 has been cancelled due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation. We intend to be back in 2021 on the 2nd & 3rd October. For details of the commemorative wagon which we had intended to issue at the show please visit the Club's website where details will be published once we have decided whether to release it this year or next.
  6. Just to announce that we now have the figures from the box office at our exhibition venue. It's official! We broke the 2500 visitors art our RailEx 2019 event on the 5th & 6th October! A very big thank you to all our visitors who contributed to this record-breaking event!
  7. By way of a footnote, we now have the box office figures from the venue and this is just to announce that the footfall this year has broken the 2500 barrier. A very big thank you to all our visitors who have contributed to this milestone event!
  8. Yep, they got there safely, just to prove it, a photo just sent to me about saving aviation fuel.
  9. And to get the ball rolling, our Children's Layout is out at OxRail today - in all the rain and wind. Hope the guys had a safe drive up the A34!
  10. A new idea folks! The plan is that when the Club is invited to take part in an exhibition or other event it will be posted in this topic so that word gets out about Club activity. If you want to keep up with what we are doing simply follow this thread and you will receive email notifications about our activities as they are posted. Good idea? Let us know what you think
  11. Hi, thanks for the vote of confidence - but - the Fareham show was last weekend, I think you might be at the other F&DMRC Show that takes place in Hampshire - the Farnham show.

  13. So... Thanks to everyone who supported us over the weekend, we still don't have the final results - a feature of letting the venue do the ticketing for us - but the omens are looking good for it being a successful event. And what better way to round off this year's show than the flyer for next year's show?
