First, my apologies to anyone trying to get decals at this stage, I am pretty well 24/7 CLEARSPAN TMTEX at the moment.
As stated in an earlier post, the complete listing of exhibitors is on the Darling Downs Model Railway Club Inc. website along with a $2.00 downloadable discount voucher. 2014 CLEARSPAN TMTEX
With only three sleeps to go, things are really getting busy, tomorrow 'Thursday' we mark up the hall and some exhibitors will bring their displays along in readiness, Coff's Harbour, Coorparoo, Little Plain and Cobra siding being some. Although not the accepted set up day, we do like to accommodate special needs to make it easy on the exhibitors.
There is a vast variety of scales, gauges and prototypes as well as the additional hobbies such as Model Cars/trucks/Tanks etc, Slot Cars, and Radio Control Drift cars (the latter will be running all the time for your entertainment).
The Craft section has been expanded as well and the Kids activities include colouring in, face painting and DVD's. The Colouring in Competition takes a different direction this year with "Your Inspiration at Home" being the sponsor, unique prizes that are to encourage child/parent participation are being awarded (Mixing bowl/measure/Pizza Cutter/whisk/chocolate flavour/pizza flavour etc, something the boys and girls can enjoy doing, as the end result is delicious food).
With AR KITS, Gwydir Valley Hobbies, J J Hobbies, Wuiske Models, PGC. Black Diamond, Southern Rail and many others covering different hobbies as well as trains, everyone will find something they like/need/want.
All up, the number and variety of exhibits is greater than we have ever had before.
A late entry is a 1:43 Diecast model car Trader "Forrest Collectables.
There are ten Family Passes to the Ipswich Workshops to be won over the course of the weekend.
Saturday 31st May 9am to 5pm, Sunday 1st June 9am to 4pm.
