Planning has started for this year’s Open Day on 12/08/17.  

Please see Neil if you’re prepared to help with administration and organisation on the day.

I will be looking for around 20 volunteers to help man the stands and assist with parking.

A dedicated web page has been created HERE and will be updated as plans progress.

This 2 day exhibition was held at the Whitwick Leisure Centre Main Hall and was attended by about a dozen clubs as well as the Surface Warship Association and the Lifeboats Enthusiasts Society along with a good selection of traders.

GVMBC took along about 30 boats including HMS Fearless which strolled off with the awards for Best Military Boat, Best Scratch Built Boat and Best Boat of the Show.  Hearty congratulations to Dennis Robotham for what we always knew is an excellent, now award winning model.

Dennis, Cliff, Dean and I represented the club and our display was very well received, receiving votes from the other clubs in virtually all categories.
