Shearwater Hobby Show - April 13-14, 2019

New postby bdg on Sat Mar 16, 2019 9:59 am

Mark you calendars! The Shearwater Hobby Show is scheduled for April 13-14, 2019, at the Sea King Club (242 Warrior Avenue) at Shearwater. This is running from 10am - 4pm each of these two days.

HEFA participation in this event was discussed at the AGM and the consensus was that HEFA members would like to support this event. We are lucky to share the workload, camaraderie and enthusiasm of this great hobby with our friends at the Shearwater RC Flyers. We will be sharing a table to present our models. You will note, too, that several of our HEFA members are also members at Shearwater.

This is a great opportunity to support the museum, to get to better know members (both of SW and of HEFA) and to potentially entice new members to the hobby in a safe and rewarding manner. Bring along a few models and your enthusiasm of the hobby!

We have some handouts and business cards ready.

Please let us know if you are interested in participating. Let us know your availability and we will revise this posting with potential people / times to help staff the booth. Ideally, a 2 hour slot would be preferred but any amount of time would be incredibly appreciated. Many hands make light work.

Friday - Set-Up

I can be available both days. I may have to split some time between us and Flight Sim Nova Scotia.
I'll bring the HEFA Radian and my mini Timber.
Do you want me to bring my laptop with Real Flight?

I plan on going to the hobby show both days. I plan on going early Saturday to help set up and represent the Shearwater club. Sunday, I plan on doing the afternoon part with HEFA and help with taking down the tables and chairs.
Not sure what type of plane I will bring.

A reminder that the hobby show is this weekend. Planned participation has been fairly low from HEFA and there are lots of spaces to fill and opportunities to support this event. Be sure to let us know if you might be able to help out!

I was at SW this evening to try and set up for tomorrow. I’ve delivered our club Apprentice and tried to place the HEFA banner and MAAC flag but did not have enough hands or the right gear. So these are resting on the table. We also have ample MAAC and HEFA brochures as handouts. I thought that I had some business cards but can’t seem to locate these.

Doors open for participants at 8am and to the public at 10am. A reminder that entrance fees are waived for those manning the display!

Unfortunately , we have a small participation rate this year.

I will post some pictures when I get home.

I will be bringing along some models for when I am at the booth. With the forecast, there is the possibility that I will be at the hobby show much earlier. Lots of room for others - even last minute would be very much welcomed!!!

And if there might be a better way to hang the banner/ flag - then that can also be considered. The wall is brick. SW added a vertical divider to mount their banner behind the display.
