The bidding begins

A new committee and a new way of doing things. For some time there have been stirrings amongst the membership to get on and build layouts, casting off the subtle shackles entwined around them by successive generations of armchair modellers. A touch of poetic licence perhaps, but there is definitely a mood of change around.

So recently we had a session at the club where members were invited to pitch for space, time and resources to build, modify or extend their preferred creation. Three rooms are available for modelling (plus the garden of course) so there was plenty of scope for imaginative uses of the space. No less than seven bids were made, all of which generated questions, comments and occasionally mild scepticism. Some were brand new, others variations or improvements to existing layouts.

The committee now have the unenviable job of deciding which are most worthy of progression in the short- or medium-term.
