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

May meeting this Saturday

You will watch my watch! You are getting sleepy, but not too sleepy!

Listen closely: It’s that time again; to meet and greet and deal with plastic. You will be there. You will enjoy. You will now bark like a chicken!

When I snap my fingers you will wake up and find yourself at the MoB meeting this Saturday night.

See you on Saturday night. 7:30 PM. Map below right.

The MOBs AGM and July meeting – July 5th

The next Modellers of Ballarat July meeting is on this Saturday evening the 5th of July at 7:30 PM.

July is AGM Time for the MoB!
Believe it or not, it’s time for the annual MoB election. For years past the election has been more or less a formalitywith the same oldmodellers and tired being returned to their places on the committee. Even the old Central Committee of the Russian Communist Party saw more turnover than our club has had of late. But perhaps there was more at stake in that committee than there is in ours.

Only financial members can vote so if you haven’t re-enlisted don’t forget to bring along your membership fee so you can take part in our annual act of democracy. See you there on Saturday night!

The MOB has arrived

The MOB (or the Modellers of Ballarat Club Inc. for those more inclined to propriety than we) has finally arrived at our new web address.

Over the coming months we’ll be adding all of our rants, rambles and newsletters from the very first through to this months latest edition.

Drop by each month online, unless you can make it to the club for some friendly banter and a lot of plastic.

All the best

Andrew Martin

Dungeon Master (hee-hee)
