    This is the poster I created in 2023.

    I'm working on an up to date poster for June 2024.

    Also a newspaper article from last year.

    It would be a good idea for you, or a member of your club to design/create a poster that can be displayed on social media, in local libraries, cafe's and shared with the newspaper editors/reporters...

    You need to give your newspapers, TV and radio stations some human interest.

    Our hobby is not just about model boats etc, it's about people.

    Dear Hermank.

    Easter greetings to you and all your friends in KMYCA.

    I enjoyed looking through your website, especially the fotogalerij. I was especially interested in the Zeilen page as I sail model yachts at Rawdon MBC and several other clubs in my region.

    Your club is well established after 119 years! Well done.

    Rawdon MBC can trace it's history back to 1886. However it has changed it's name a couple of times over it's history.

    We have the same problem about recruiting younger people, most of our skippers are in their 60' 70's and 80's. I know of one member who is about 90.

    The only way I know to try and recruit new members is to host open days, advertised in the local newspapers and online. But it's hard work, as you know.

    Best wishes.

    Mike

    Thank you Rudy, I really appreciate your comments about my website.

    The website is set up as you see it so that it won't go "out of date".

    The site is meant to be a shop window for anyone trying to find a model boat club in West Yorkshire. Not a place to publish minutes etc.

    Having said that what additional info do you think would be appropriate?

    Finally the website was built using Google Sites. It is not an HTML site so I am unable to add a sitemap.

    Thanks again

    Mike

    That's right Colin. Several buyers were interested but for reasons unknown to me the sale didn't go through.
    The owner wants to try again.

    I visited Lake Louise in 1994 and had coffee in the hotel there.
    We were entertained by a lovely lady playing the harp.
    But unfortunately we couldn't see the mountains around the lake due to the low cloud and rain.

    This statement that Livingstone was the first European to see the falls.
    There are extracts from his journal that indicate that he named them after Queen Victoria.

    From Lands End you pass Ushant on the port side before traversing the Bay of Biscay... then if you stay on course you eventually ground on the northern shores of Spain.

    I used to listen to the television on my radio. It was an old Bush transistor radio bought from the NAAFI in 1977.
    I distinctly remember listening to Buck Rodgers ... biddy biddy biddy... and was so disappointed when I saw the programme on TV.

    The pirate flag is not the 'Merry' Roger.
    It is and always has been the Jolly Roger.
