The Great Lakes Model Boat Association will hold their 2005 Model Expo hosted by the Golden Triangle Marine Modellers in the Kitchener Ontario City Hall on July 2-3, 2005. In addition to all the usual categories of Pleasure, Working, Naval , Sail(Tall Ships) and otherv categories there will be a SUBMARINE category. These categories will be broken down into Scratch, Semi-kit and Kit categories. There will be a BEST IN SHOW Award, a PEOPLES CHOICE Award and a specila award from MODEL CONTROL DEVICES and POLK'S HOBBIES for the BEST ANIMATED RUNNING BOAT which means additional functions besides just going back and forth and turning. This award will include a TRACKER III radio with a MCD SWITCH 16 installed, 4-VARI-VOLT reversing relays and 2-MCD MINICON MAX 50 amp speed controls.
There will be narrated running shows on the pond in front of the City Hall which unfortunately is too shallow to dive in.
Kitchener is 1 hour west of Toronto, 3 hours from Detroit and 2 hours from Niagara Falls/Buffalo.
