About Andrew Martin

After a long IT and Telecommunications career in the USA and Australia, I've decided I need a break. Professionally I'm focused on direct contact customer service - people helping people. Hobby wise I'm focused on model railway layout building and modelling. I blog, write and publish as often as I am able.

March monthly meeting on this Saturday & March newsletter posted

The title says it all does it not?

So the meeting is on this saturday, same time, same bat channel, and the usual round of suspects will be there too.

If you’re new in Ballarat and a modeller come along to the meeting and of course check out our Facebook page to see what’s going on.

See you there

Annual Show Date set for 2017

At our meeting last night we set the date for 2017’s Scale Model Exhibition & Swap ‘n’ Sell Annual Model Show. Originally we had planned to hold the show in late April. With a conflicting Melbourne show however, we would have struggled. Rather than struggle, we have shuffled the deck again and chosen Sunday the 6th of August for the show. This will allow us the time to get through all the work required to make the show happen; a lot of steps are involved and there are many dependencies involved.

We have a site chosen and it was available for the late April show. We need to see if we can swing the venue to the date, which should be completed this week. There’ll be more information coming during the month of February as we get through the process.
