2021 Scale Models Wellington EXPO update…

Unfortunately the committee have decided to cancel this event, due to circumstances making the organisation of the event in time not possible, and the likelihood that the event would not be a success if it was attempted without effective planning.

When we have more news on a new event, we will post up an update.

UPDATED SUBSCRIPTION FORM FOR 2020-21 SUBS

At the AGM at last months Club Night we finally got to confirm the 2020 – 2021 Subscription Fees, which are the same as they were last year & the same that was on the “interim” subscription form that I sent out a couple of months back.

So if you haven’t got around to paying your subs, enclosed is the updated subscription form so you can get onto it pronto!!

(If you did pay on the earlier interim form, there was no change in the $$ amounts, so there is no extra to pay and thank you for doing it early!…)

Confirmed Membership Form is available here as a PDF

Virtual Club Nights are back on – first mid-month Zoom conference on Wednesday 15th of July at 8pm…

With the virtual club nights via Zoom conference being successful over the lockdown period, and also a good opportunity for the ‘out of town’ community to contribute, we listened to your feedback at the AGM & have brought them back for one night a month, around the middle of each month.

This compliments our usual end of month Club Night at the Johnsonville Community Centre.

The first meeting will be on Wednesday the 15th of July, which isn’t quite in tune with the fortnight after the ‘real’ club night, but because of school holidays & its a long month this works better for me hosting it.

Details are:
