NDMRS 2013

North Down Model Railway Show

Once again we will be hosting a stand at this show over the weekend of 27th/28th April.

This years venue will be the new Bangor Leisure Centre.

Come along, pay us a visit, say Hi, have a chat and pick our brains on your Model Flying queries.

Thanks to all who manned the Stand at the NDMRS Exhibition last Saturday/Sunday, and of course set it up on Friday night and took it down on Sunday. Rodney, Peter and Eric were the mainstays.
North Down Model Club supported us with members to man the Stand and some very nice models, so thank you to them as well.
The Stand was a success, and the new venue at the Aurora Centre was a nice clean big hall. It appeared to have plenty of Railway layouts, and the attendance was probably boosted by the new venue, which is worth a visit.
The Area, i. e. Bob McIvor, Bill Scott, Rodney and others, have assembled the necessary hardware to provide a laptop, projector and Simulator, which was a major attraction and enjoyed by many, including fliers as well as visitors. Having something active throughout the Exhibition is a big attraction.
The BMFA Stand was also set up and had a prominent location. We sold a few Darts and Butterflies and Rodney flew his indoor models, now recognised in the Exhibition Programme as something to look out for.

SkyBirds Rally

The SkyBirds Rally took place at Mountstewart on Saturday 8th May.

This year the weather was definitely on our side with good sunshine all day.

Control Line and Radio Control flying displays continued through the afternoon to enthral the public.

The static display of Radio Controlled Scale was fantastic with some lovely models proudly shown. This was also the Judging for the static section of the Northern Ireland radio scale competition which kept the judges busy all day.

This is now an annual, growing and important event in the calender of Northern Ireland aeromodelling.

The support of all those who gave up their time freely and helped with the success of this event is greatly appreciated.

We look forward to SKYBIRDS 2011
