Thanks to all that came and thanks also to those that displayed, a really fantastic standard is being set by all involved. We had an even bigger attendance this month at 23 people in all. I think we may face a few challenges with the amount of people attending, I would not want to discourage people from coming far from it, the opposite I feel would actually benefit the meetings as we have seen by the large range of diverse modelling subjects shown at the meetings.

The challenges are really as follows.
1. Trying to do a demo that everyone can see in a comfortable, relaxed and informative manner.
2. Displaying our models and talking about them in a way that everybody can see and hear.
3. Maintaining our current structure e.g. a loose collection of like minded individuals that have an interest in modelling.

Basically we need a bigger space and one we don't have to pay for. E.g. A room above a pub that a portion of us would then a drink at after the meeting or a community space provided by the council, arts council, heritage ireland, UCC, CIT.........ect. I'm pretty sure the Cork Historical Society, Munster Railway Record Society and Western Front Association have these problems too. Any ideas or contacts would be great !

Lastly I will be holding the November meeting in the shop as per usual, but i won't be doing a demo, anyone else want to do a demo and would like to step up to the plate please let me know.

Regards. Wayne

Wayne I can step up with a demo if you want as I told you before ;) .. probably it’s not a subject who everyone are into but this can be applied in other future projects I believe.
About the space you are right it’s getting very tight but I believe someone might have some kind of contact with cork council to get a space for us for a couple of hours once a month :)

Understand the problems but the model shop has its own little Attraction too. Bit of a Rummage around without the Great unwashed (well there are a couple present:) ). Pity it is a wee bit of a squeeze now.
Cheers
