Sunday at S.M.G. IJmond

Sunday at S.M.G. IJmond

I had the honour and privilege of spending Sunday at Scheepsmodelbouwgroep IJmond te Heemskerk, Northern Holland, The Netherlands.

What a fantastic club, club house, pond and People.

It was a beautiful, warm Fall Day.

Thanks to Aimee for the lead on the Club. And thanks to the Club for the invite to attend. Much enjoyed and appreciated.

Glad to see you were able to contact the club, and make time to visit.
http://www.smgijmond.nl/ and also visiting friends with the Mailline Vaargroep would
be my goal the next time I have an opportunity to visit Europe...

Did you get to ride the elevator?

That may be the finest model boat club facility in the world, with modelers to match. And the town of Heemskerk is neat too!

I enjoyed a day there once, would go back anytime (anytime I win the lottery or otherwise get to travel again...)

Photo Resolution

I had to post the photos using a LapTop and a Wireless Connection; Therefore the photos are of a lower resolution, than ideal.

I may repost in higher resolution when I get back to the Ofiice.

If anyone would like a higer resolution of a particular photo, let me know.

I also have some photos of some transmitters, that I have not seen before and of some great display / travel boards, which I will post later.
