01/04/2017 & 02/04/2017 - Coalville Model Boat Show
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 Neil represented the club and our display was very well received, receiving votes from the other clubs in virtually all categories.
