Feb 2024: Model Show Update
Well, we are into February, and model-show organising is progressing at a good pace. I am pleased to report that we are filling up both halls nicely with clubs and SIGS who have applied to attend, and who have completed and passed the necessary paperwork checks that we need to undertake. The primary change has been that of insurance, and we are forced by our insurers to ensure that all our sub-contractors – and that means the clubs and groups who come along and put on displays as well as the traders are covered by public liability insurance.
Regrettably, this has meant that we have had to decline applications from a couple of groups, this year, but that is the way of the world now – the world has changed in the past few years and we now live in one where everything is deemed OK until it goes pear shaped, and then everyone looks for someone to carry the can and pass the blame too.p
So on behalf of Salisbury Model Club, both the Chairman and myself as Show Organiser, are very sorry for the upset this causes, but for under £60 a year, I can point anyone and any club in the direction of a public liability insurance policy if your club and more especially any of your members are not affiliated to IPMS.
Please drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like details of this.
However, we do as I write this, still have a little capacity for just a few more exhibiting clubs – so if you have not yet replied or would like to attend, don’t hesitate – get in touch please – sooner than later please, if you wish to guarantee your space.
In May, I will be writing to you all once I have had a meeting at the venue, and will impart any information I have on pending road works and travel issues, along with news about our event at that time. Chris M
