EDINA MODEL YACHT CLUB
2013 PARADE Of BOATS
By John Bishop
Our 22th annual Parade of Model Boats will be held on Sunday, June 9th. The show will start off with the setup process beginning at 9:00 AM leading to an "opening" of the doors to the general public at 11:00 AM. The show will then continue on a set schedule until its conclusion at 4:00 PM. All of the details concerning this event can be read in the June edition of our newsletter.
It's hard to believe that this is already our 22nd show, but time passes quickly and this event has become deeply rooted in EMYC tradition. Since we have developed a pattern of mild success with the event, we will try to follow the basic premise of the show-gather and interact with fellow club members, introduce our hobby-related interests to the public, and display and run boats during the day. It's a simple formula that many have come to look forward to each year. As always, input from any club member is welcomed and new ideas are generally good ones so feel free to voice them.
We are hoping to have 150 to 200 boats on display and with cooperative weather, we'll run a schedule that will allow for a high turnout of on-water demonstrations. As usual, please keep in mind that with a forecast of marginal weather or the look of stormy skies, the show still continues as an indoor display until the weather improves (it's tough to accurately predict things much more than a day in advance).
The Parade show is planned for the second Sunday of June each year. For those of you with long-term schedule books the show will be held next year on Sunday June 8th, 2014 and the following year Sunday June 14th, 2015. We need to set this up with Stacie in event planning well in advance to insure that our slot is reserved. The Hughes Pavilion is very popular for weddings, gatherings, business meetings, etc. and a quick look at the June 2013 schedule showed a full table of events. Planning at the last minute would leave us with few options and this is why we provision two years in advance. Again, the city has graciously provided us with the facility and the resources to make this show a success. Without them it would not be quite the same. Tom and his entire crew go all out for us consistently each year.
The show is also a defining point in time during the year. That is, it has given us a target date to complete projects from the long winter months. We have seen the push by many to complete their model boats by the Parade show date. Sometimes deadlines can be good. The Builder's table always allows for partially completed models to be displayed so don't leave interesting unfinished projects at home.
We look forward to having a good membership turnout on Sunday June 10th. This is the best attended event of the season. The key to success is for the event to be enjoyable and rewarding to everyone; so when you participate in the show, make sure you display, run, and assist in a way that is productive and comfortable for you. Some do a lot and some do not as much but everyone is welcome to participate at whatever level you desire. Keep it simple and keep it fun. This is what we will strive for again. This should be another great year for a Parade of Model Boats. See you there. John Bishop (952) 922-1745

Coool! A place that we can actually communicate with EMYC members! This has some potential - If we can convince other members to use computers....... Possibly could be easier to find this if it were listed with the alphabetical list of "RC Clubs" -- That would be nice.
