As last year, we have a great opportunity next month to both help out the York YMCA and to promote the model ship / submarine hobby. .
The YMCA's Graham Aquatic Center in York is hosting their "Healthy Kids Day" on Saturday, April 17 from 11:00 until 3:00. The aquatic director in Shrewsbury has asked if we would display and run boats again this year. We'll have the use of the 25 meter indoor pool. Those of you who came out last year will recall that we had a large group of VERY enthusiastic kids there watching and running the boats. A good time was had by everyone!
Please consider coming if at all possible. Even if you don't actually run your boat / ship, it will provide wonderful exposure to the hobby in general and the local clubs for the community and the media. We all lament regularly how the hobby is shrinking, here's your chance to make a difference. Show up, and show off! Let me know if you're coming.
