Last weekend Friday 25 through Sunday 27 April saw the Spring Meet take place at the Ukrainian Youth Centre at Weston-upon-Trent, organised by the Black Diamonds very ably led by Diamonds Steve Dennison, Jim Dickinson and Steve Quick and Snake Bend's Gavin Fry. The Board of Directors, on behalf of all members and guests who attended, would like to congratulate the entire organising team, along with all exhibitors, part-time operators, traders and those on the bring and buy tables for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. The weather was kind to us all too. Despite the attractions of nearby Donnington Park where clearly there was motor racing both days, members and visitors enjoyed a great blend of N, HO and On30 layouts on display. And in all probability wallets were hit hard by the goodies on offer.
The President Keith Webb also awarded the two Steves, Jim and Gavin each with a Certificate of Appreciation for the efforts. This is a new award that is being trialled to show the Region's appreciation and support for those members who go the extra mile to provide members with added value. It is hoped that we can in some way match the giving of these awards to members to credit for hours committed to Region under the "Association Volunteer" class in the Achievement Programme.
Well done lads and ladies.
