NM`14 holdes i Finland

Hej,
Selv om Norge og Sverige har meddelt at de ikke kommer, (har de samme problemer som vi har) holder de NM i år.
Vi er p.t. ca. 7 personer (6 deltager + 1 supporter) fra VMK som tager nok op til dem.
Jeg regner med vi kører Torsdag morgen den 24.7. fra Vallensbæk og tager færgen fra Stockholm til Helsinki. Her fra er det ca. 1½ times køretur mod grænsen i Rusland.
Helle og mig tager nok nogle dage efter NM i området så vi kører nok hjem tirsdagaften fra Helsinki, så vi er hjem igen onsdagaften.

Er der andre som ville tilslutter sig dette, er de altid velkommen.

Indydelsen kommer her:
Hi all,
 we will hold Nordic Championship in 25-27th July 2014 if you are interested to participate.
 Competition is held in Strömfors (Ruotsinpyhtää in Finnish), very beautiful and traditional place located between Loviisa and Kotka, about 1,5h drive from Helsinki. There is a restaurant, cafe, foodstore, rooms and we can arrange place for caravans.
 Please let me know if you are willing to participate. Then we continue to make arrangements and planning.
Best regards, Harri N Finland

Der kommer mere info ang. dette i februar, ind til da venter vi med reserveringen og alt.

her er også nogle grunde hvorfor de andre lande ikke kommer, her har vi et generelt problem som rammer DK først i år og de næste år, desværre.
1. Unfortunately has the interest for competition and championship in X , during the last years, substantial decrease.  People being older and there are no recruitments of younger members. We have now only one or sometimes two competitions per year. Instead we meet at events, exhibitions, fairs and displays.

For the moment there are only myself that maybe able to participate. (We could perhaps coordinate the journey with visit relatives in Finland.) But I can't promise. There is, up to now, nobody other showing any interest.

2. I am sorry to report that there is little probability that anyone from X will participate this year.

I have forwarded the invitation to the others that might have been interested in participating and pushed them for an answer. It has been discussed in our club but it does not seem to fit any ones plans for this summer.

From our arrangement in X we learned that there little interest in our contry, outside the X club, for this kind of competition. And there were even memebers of our own club that seemed to "disappear" when we were going to arrange something. Actually we had hoped to increase the interest, but did not succed. Strangely enough we got more participants when we reduced the arrangement to a one day informal open exebition and with competition in manouvering only for those interested in that. There is a good bunch of people arround building model boats, but the large majority seems to be happy with just building and not driving in a competitive way.

I wish Harri & Co a god luck with the arrangement, whatever you decide to do.

Der hvor der store et X har jeg slettet et navn, jeg ville ikke hænge nogle af det ud.

Som i kan se er der over alt de samme problemer, vi kan nok ikke finde en løsning her og nu men måske kan vi gøre noget på den lange bane, der for er det nok vigtig at du kommer til Gf i år. Jeg syntes det er nok meget vigtig at du kommer ellers kan vi nok havne i det samme problem. 
Er vi Interesseret i det?
