Due to an abundance of caution, concerning COVID-19, the next meeting of QMS will be held at Jeremy Gander's' place on a date to be determined. (In April, we hope) Directions may be obtained by contacting the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
QMS attended a presentation on the 12th. of March, at Quinte Plastic Modelers at Eastminster United Church on Bridge St. E. in Belleville. Guest lecturer Peter Malone told us about his service on Royal Navy nuclear submarines. He was very interesting and informative recounting his service which saw him, among other cruises, visit the North Pole, and participate in the Falklands Islands war.
Temperatures have been very moderate for most of this winter but still not conducive to try any outside model boating, all those ideas and builds that still need a bit of testing before completion will just have to wait a bit longer. Infact, with Great Lakes levels likely to continue well above normal for some time, the water is “too much of a good thing” and it will be difficult to find places to launch and try out the Winter works, unless in small ponds, pools or the tub.
