EVENTS

 

PLEASE NOTE: THE EVENTS LISTED BELOW FOR SMBC HAVE BEEN CANCELLED TILL FURTHER NOTICE.

Events later in the year such as the model boat show may take place, All dates have been left here for reference.

SMBC run a few events through the year including the regular Club 500 races at the lake. We also help with / attend other club events.

 

Dates for 2020  will appear on the website as the year progresses...watch this space!

 

SMBC  have close ties with the Luton Model Boat Club, and similarly the Welwyn Club.

 

At the St Albans Model Engineering show each September, we help to organise the Model Boat section, where as well as the displays, there is a 'pop-up' boat pond to see some of the models in action. It's a good place to find boats and bits for sale.

 

SMBC usually have a stand at the International Model Boat Show held at the Warwick Exhibition Centre during November, and recently have exhibited at Stotfold, Letchworth, Biggleswade & Hoddesdon.
