THE Langtoun Model Boat Club played host to a successful Scottish Model Boat championships last Sunday.

Ron Johnson of the Beveridge Park-based club was delighted with how the big day went.

He said: “It was an excellent day. It went very well.

“David Torrance opened it and then later in the day the prizes were presented by Judy Hamilton.

“It stayed dry which was perfect for us and it seemed to be a good turnout. The public enjoyed it and we enjoyed the day too.”

Ron added how difficult it is to put on such an event: “Someone asked if we could put it on again next month, but it takes so long to get it going. It took nearly a year for us to organise this one.

“We have done this before though. About eight years ago.”

The club will take their mobile pond to Summerlea this weekend for another big event.
