You guessed it, that time of the month again. Time for a MoBster meeting at the new location, Eastwood Centre in Ballarat Central.

Same bat time, and same bat channel.

See you there.

Last meeting before the show! 5th August 2017

So, unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last few weeks, or otherwise been in the modelling boondocks, you’ll have noticed that there is a modelling show this coming Sunday in Ballarat.

Before we get there though there’s the chance to come and hang out at the club’s new meeting rooms at the Eastwood Centre (right behind Woolies and Coles on Dana Street).

Plenty of parking, warmth, tea and coffee, friendship and a fresh and raring to go committee. So come along and hang out with your fellow modellers for the evening. Meeting starts at around 7.30-ish, runs for some time and there’ll be lots of talk, and fun.

See you there.

Out of space, and no one can hear you scream

It’s been a wild ride for the members of the club the last few months. Our meeting home for some time, The Kohinoor Centre, is to be closed. Costs to host a show ballooned and we’ve been forced to delay our show while we put things together. It just seems that we could not find the luck.

And then everything changed.

Beginning next month (June 2017) we’ll be moving to a new space, in the centre of Ballarat, easy to get to, lots of parking and plenty of space. As Gary Zimmer our President said today in a statement from his house: “In case you didn’t already know, we are no longer meeting at the Kohinoor. The June MoB meeting, and those for the foreseeable future, will be at the Eastwood leisure centre, 20 Eastwood St. Times are unchanged, still 7-ish on the first Saturday of the month, except January.”

So there you have it. Our accommodation woes have passed. A new chapter has begun for the club. The club’s thanks go out to both Dom and Gary for the work they’ve put in to find us a new home.

April newsletter online & meeting tonight

Tonight 7:30 PM and it’s meeting time. FOr those unaware our time at the Kohinoor Centre is coming to an end. THis is due to some government program doing something to someone … blah, blah, blah.

Short version is we have to move. Your team of dedicated managers have met over fine beer and vittles trying to come up with a plan; a cunningly crafted plan. When that failed we came up with the next best thing, and that will be presented tonight. So if you want to hear about it all, make some decisions and ensure the future of the club then come along.

The newsletter is also online for those who get their newsletter via download.

Short of a Zombie apocalypse I’ll see you there tonight.

The MoB’s invaded FaceSpace!

Dominic has led the charge to overthrow the evil Lord Zurg… sorry, that’s a story for another day and the subject of another post.

Dominic has however, opened a MoB page on the Facebook section of the interweb. For those of you interested joining us on Facebook head on over and sign up for the group. Keep in mind that you need to be a member of Facebook first before you can sign up.

The page has been open for about a month now and we have around 20 members of the group and quite a few photos by folks out of Ballarat. If you get a chance head on over and check it out. We’ll be pushing all of our updates now to Facebook. So keep an eye out for them.

Andrew
