2021 Melbourne Meccano Exhibition
We will be holding our twenty-first Annual exhibition during the second weekend in October, 2021. Details are available here.
Electrical Equipment Testing (By-Law 5)
Mains connected electrical equipment used at Club functions must comply with safety requirements as provided in Club By-Law 5. Primarily, all mains-powered equipment MUST have a current "test and tag" proof of safety. No tag, no power.
The annual Club sponsored inspection and testing of members' electrical equipment is conducted on the morning of the June meeting. The rooms will be open from 10 am on 12 June 2021 for receipt of items.
Members' display details
The 2021 display form may downloaded by right clicking here. The document is in Microsoft Word format and will require Microsoft Word or similar to open and edit/print. As soon as you have finalised the details of your display, it will help immensely if you download the form from the website, fill in your details and return it. Early is good, late is bad!
The information members provide on their forms is used to design the layout of the halls to achieve a good balance as well as to make the weekend an enjoyable one for members.
Therefore the exhibition subcommittee needs to know the length of table space you will require to the nearest 100mm. This is important as errors here could mean that you are uncomfortable and cramped or the public is shortchanged by a lot of empty table space. Please set your display up at home and measure it with a tape before completing your form.
To balance the displays we need to know whether models are powered or static and whether you have made special provision for "hands on" play by our visitors. If you will be showing an original model please provide some details. If you are reproducing a model from the literature please include a reference to your source.
The last date on which forms will be accepted is 10 September 2021. Late forms may be accepted by special arrangement but will only be allocated table space after all other forms are processed.
The Annual Club Dinner will be held on the evening of 9 October 2021. Be sure to include your intentions in the space provided on your form before submitting it.
