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.

This year the show will be held on Sunday April 17 at the Caro Convention Centre, University Drive, Federation University, Mt Helen (Ballarat). We’ll be open 10 AM to 4 PM. There’ll be kit raffles, and a sausage sizzle too! All monies raised go to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

A very great thanks go to our sponsors: ModelArt Magazine Australia

Getting there is easy!

From Melbourne:

  • Take the first Ballarat exit from the Western Highway into Ballarat. Keep driving along Victoria Street until you reach a set of traffic lights with a Hungry Jacks on the opposite corner. Turn left at this intersection.
  • Follow the signs toward Sovereign Hill. At the Roundabout for Sovereign Hill continue straight on and follow the signs toward Buninyong and Geelong.
  • You’ll pass the Midvale Shopping Centre before the Federation University signs direct you to University Drive.
  • This road leads you onto the University’s Mount Helen Campus. It takes about 12 minutes from the Ballarat CBD.

I’ve just put up some photos from the 2012 MoB show. You can find that page directly by clicking the link : Link to 2012 show photos.

As always you can get there by choosing Image Galleries on the main menu, choosing Annual shows and then choosing the year.

We are however missing many years. So if you have photos from a previous show would you let me know at the next club meeting. I can have a USB key ready for you take home and fill up with all those lovely electrons. I get a tingle just thinking about free electrons.

Concerning? Yup.

Talk to you later on.
