Next Appearance: Middleton Cheney Fete

IPMS Middleton Cheney is pleased to announce that we will be displaying at next weekend’s Middleton Cheney Fete on Sunday 5th June.

We’re delighted to be able to support local events and hope visitors enjoy our display. It provides a great opportunity for the club to make its presence known within the community, as well as give the model-making hobby exposure to the general public. Budding model makers and experienced hands, young and old, don’t always realise there might be a club for them in their neighbourhood and therefore local events give us a platform to recruit new people into the hobby.

If you plan on attending, we look forward to seeing you there!

April Club Meeting Review

The April monthly club meeting took place last night (21st April) with a very healthy turnout. It was the second round of the 2016 club competition and while unfortunately we have no pictures to show this month, the scores are very close. It’s proving to be a very competitive year!

Discussion covered our upcoming shows: Milton Keynes is taking place this weekend, where our finished Star Trek display will make its proper debut, while in two weeks’ time we’ll be preparing to make our debut at IPMS Gloucester’s show. It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks! Attendances and plans for both were finalised as the next meeting will take place after both have happened.

On the subject of the next meeting, the date was agreed on. The May meeting will be taking place on Thursday 19th May, as usual from 7pm in the Parish Meeting Rooms, Middleton Cheney.

If you’ve just discovered us and live in the area, why not pop along? You can get all the details on the meeting location, and what to expect when you’re there by clicking on the Club Meetings page.

Get the date in your diary and we hope to see you there!

 

2016 Event Schedule

Visitors already familiar with our website may have noticed our event calendar in the right column of the page. With this list evolving and with new events being added over time, here is a run-down of what IPMS Middleton Cheney will be getting up to in 2016.

So far, we have already made an appearance at Geek Con Banbury, the first sci-fi/comic/film fan event to be held in the town, giving us a great opportunity to reach out to local enthusiasts and potential new modellers, both young and old and grow the club’s membership.

Last week we also made our first appearance on the show circuit for the year when we displayed at the Poole Vikings club’s show. There we scooped the trophy for best visiting club display with the debut of our Star Trek theme.

Coming up, we will be returning to ModelKraft in Milton Keynes next week, and two weeks later we will make our debut at IPMS Gloucester’s show. Then, at the end of June, our annual ‘big one’ at the Bloxham Steam Rally where we’ll occupy a ludicrous amount of table space – it has to be seen to be believed!

Going into the second half of the year, we’re looking forward to making a first visit to another show, this time the Midland Expo in Birmingham, and then in August returning for a second time to IPMS Avon’s show in Thornbury.

In addition to these shows, we also have a number of other events in the pipeline that are awaiting confirmation. As and when we get the green light, the news will be up here immediately, so stay in touch!

We hope to see you around at one (or more!) of these shows over the year!
