Postponement of 2022 Model Expo….

We have been investigating our options for running the Expo in the current Covid environment – which has changed significantly in the last couple of weeks with the move to the Red Traffic Light setting.

Due to the uncertainty around travel and venue capacity limits we have had a distinct cooling of enthusiasm from sponsors and traders to attend, due to the upfront costs and potential low returns if we can only have small numbers of people coming in the venue.

As a result we have been forced to postpone the event, and will be looking to see when we can re-schedule once we have some certainty after the impending Omicron outbreak.

Disappointing, but due to circumstances out of our control it cannot be avoided.

January Club Night changed to a Zoom Conference call – 8pm Wednesday 26 January…

With the recent move to the Red Traffic Light setting, we thought it would be more prudent to change from an in-person meeting to a Zoom Conference call, as lots of people will be considering whether they need to go out given the Omicron situation.

So to keep everyone safe it makes sense to move to a virtual meeting via Zoom, details are below :

I will start the meeting at 8pm sharp & we can go for 40 minutes & it will then end & we can start it up again with the same link if we need to go longer….

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.
