The Confederation Marine Modellers has a special feature at certain public events that we participate in, where we set up our portable sailing pond.
This special feature is only held at events hosted by the CMM, and is subject to weather, availability of space, and any other factors beyond the control of the club.
The Club has a number of ‘Pusher’ tugboats that are scale replicas of pusher tugs found on many inland waterways of North America. The full scale tugs are generally employed in pushing and pulling barges containing bulk cargoes up and down the rivers of the US and parts of Canada.
Our replica pusher tugs are specially built to be used, under supervision, by children, who get an opportunity to be the ‘captain’ of an RC replica model boat. They are given a personalized ‘Honourary Captain’s Certificate’ at the end of their running session, to help encourage their future interest in the event and our hobby. We ask the parents for a small donation for the child’s participation, which we accumulate over our sailing season, and then turn over 100% of the funds collected towards worthy programs in the Hamilton area that involve children directly. In the past we have supported children’s breakfast programs in the Hamilton area as well as volunteer community groups such as the Optimists Club. We have been involved in this program for a number of years.
The members of our Club have a direct say in which organizations we support each year.
For more information, please leave a message on our site, and a club member will get in touch with you.
