WELCOME TO THE BURY METRO MARINE MODELLING SOCIETY'S WEB SITE.
Bury Metro Marine Modelling Society is a friendly and active club, although members can sail 7 days a week, the club house is open on Sunday and Wednesdays from 9am till 1pm approximately where refreshments are available from the kitchen. The clubhouse also has two toilets for members and guests. Sometimes the clubhouse is open on other days but not normally Thursdays and Saturdays.
The 2017/18 membership is currently £15.00, if paid before 30th March 2017 for existing members. If not paid by 30th March the Joining fee of £5.00 will be added. The membership fee is reviewed annually at the AGM. There is a single £5.00 joining fee to cover administration, badges and club book, etc. Membership fees cover third party insurance for members throughout the UK, so if you visit another club you are insured. Anybody wanting to try out our facilities may come free for 3 times, and then will be asked to become a member. People joining halfway through our season will pay £12.50, inclusive of the joining fee, for the balance of that season.
The Club has a rescue dinghy with a small electric outboard motor, oars and life jackets (which you must wear) for recovering of model boats marooned in the middle of the lake.
Sailing is permitted 7 days a week, but the club house is only open on certain days, namely Sundays and Wednesdays from 9:00am until 1:00pm and regularly on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00am till 1:00pm.
Tuesdays and Fridays are
generally reserved for yachting, but this is dependent on the weather and the
availability of a key-holder. This is controlled by Brian Henderson, the chairman, who is a member of the Yachting section. If in doubt, contact Brian
after 9:00 am on 07562387025
