After an absence of specialist ng modelling shows to attend for nearly 5 months, since the outstanding NGS at Sparsholt in March, at last here was an opportunity to "fill the gap" with a super selection of small scale layouts at an 009 Society members day, hosted by the West Midlands Group with stewarding assistance from the M5/M50 NG Modellers at Girl Guide HQ, Trefoil House, close to the centre of Birmingham.
The reason for the event was to provide for an Extraordinary General Meeting called by the 009 Society in order to elect a new Chairman and Secretary. Suffice to say that, despite the formalities of an EGM, it was still very much an informal fun day which the 70 or so 009 Society members that attended all appeared to enjoy themselves immensely. I know I did!
A good venue for this type of "do" and some splendid refreshments laid on by the Guide organisation, who benefitted from the legendary huge appetities of the train people to the tune of some £400 - everyone went home happy, and some went home very full of cake!
