Winnipeg Model Boat Club (WMBC)

I am surprised we have no listing on RC Canada's forum, so here goes.

We are the Winnipeg Model Boat Club, formerly sailing at Assiniboine Park's Riley Duck Pond (and others around the city), and now located at our dedicated model boat pond (read that as the owner is not keeping the pond as a "habitat") and clubhouse at the Red River Ex Fairgrounds. Sailing times are currently up in the air as the pond is not quite finished- the landscaping is still a work in progress...

We have our monthly meetings at Photo Central every first Monday of the month at 7pm. We also do displays for the Red River Ex and the Mega Train Show each year, as well as hold an annual regatta. You can check us out at www.winnipegmodelboatclub.ca, or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/winnipeg.mbc.

There are currently about 40 of us, and we are pretty active. We have a wide range of skill levels, from RTR boaters all the way to scratch builders of display models for several Canadian museums. All in all, we have a great bunch of folks who will not judge but are happy to advise and guide if you are stumped. Our motto is "my boat, my rules"...

Re: Winnipeg Model Boat Club (WMBC)

As an out-of-towner who dropped in on this group at one of their casual get togethers I can honestly say that I felt welcome, got lots of pictures and was very impressed with the variety and craftsmanship of their fleet.
