Fun Run with the Garden State Model Boaters


Thought I would post some pics of our club outing to one of our favorite run sites that we have the pleasure to visit here in New Jersey, Leisure Village. Our club has the use of the lake and facilities by invitation, and when we run their we have our tables set up for show and tell for the residents. We run their four times a year along with the use of the facility for our club picnic. I might be bias in saying that in our club membership we have some of the finest builders of scale models in the country, but I will let the photos of the boats running during the days events.

Gee Rich, you mean that you actually found the time to RUN your models?

Our club had its annual picnic on Saturday, and all I got to run was the grill---.

KAP- Believe it or not , it seems that is the only time I get to run other than testing out a new model design, that I do get to run. I can usually get to half of our running events, the ones that are held on Sundays, the ones that are held on Saturdays I have to pass on due to the hobby shop being open. I really look forward to the events I can make. It kinda makes it all worth wile.

Rich, we both used to get more running time in, but thar was before we got so involved in this hobby business---.

These days, I don't even have the time to BUILD a model---.

Eugene, I'm the organizer for the picnic, and also take care of our awards banquet. It's very hard to get volunteers in any club, it seems---.

They all conveniently "disappear" whenever you need them---.

Der kaptain,

Same problem with any club. Majoraty says yes to an idea while the minority do all the work with a smaller of non doers trying to take the credit.

Karl, same here! I'm the president of a domino (like the Cubans do ) club and getting the help you need is disastrous! Man you gotta love the getting together to keep going to every single meeting and/or tournament and every single time you gotta beg your players to show up on time, even show up dang! Boo
