101 Not Out
The EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society are pleased to present:
A very special day of finescale railway modelling incorporating the
Chris Kedgley Memorial Skills Day
Saturday 12th March 2016
Those of you with no interest in cricket need not fear that we are going to inflict upon you tales of the English summer and the sound of leather upon willow! We hit upon (sorry!) 101 Not Out because in 2016 the Scalefour Society will celebrate its 40th anniversary, and this year (2015) the EM Gauge Society is celebrating its 60th, so next year will be 61. So that gives us 101 years of finescale modelling and still going strong...
Planning for this landmark joint event is now complete. It won’t be a typical model railway experience; rather it’s going to focus - in a number of specific areas - on development of skills for finescale modelling. More than that, we aim to provide inspiration, learning and encouragement. And, of course, enjoyment and entertainment!
