Good afternoon all!
The BMECS Team thought it was about time that the BMECS website had its very own blog-slash-news page - and here it is! It's long overdue, and we know there are at least a couple of hobbyists who prefer not to use social media, and thus don't get the benefits of all the updates we like to post in the BMECS Facebook group. So we'll be doing our best to post lots of the updates from there on this new Blog, so that hobbyists outside of Facebook are able to keep up with them.
For those of you who aren't Facebookers and aren't familiar with the current BMECS Team, I'm Dani, and one of my primary jobs is looking after the website and thus also this new blog. I'm one of two longer-standing team members - Amanda Greaves is the other. The remaining team - Dani Hunt, Kim Murray and Amber Hitchman are all new this year. You can put faces to names and find out what we all do here.
We are so excited to have a new team for this years show. Everyone is so enthusiastic and dedicated, and they've brought some fabulous ideas to the table which we are really looking forward to unveiling. We want BMECS 2018 to be bigger and better than ever, and we are working hard to make that happen.
Speaking of which, this seems like a good time to say that entries for BMECS 2018 are now OPEN! Here is a shot of Amanda's post about it from the Facebook group, which includes all the info you need if you want to enter this year's show:
As that there's a screenshot, the highlighted blue link to the webpage to download the entry forms from won't actually do anything, so I'm including a link to it here:
Alternatively, you can click on the screenshot itself and that will take you to the same place.
One of our new exciting things for this year's show is that BMECS now has a theme! This year's theme will be fantasy. This means themed rosettes, themed prizes, themed certificates and more. Every year will be different, just to add a little more excitement to the event!
I think that's all for now. We hope that you are as excited about BMECS 2018 as we are, and we can't wait to see you there.
Over and out!
The BMECS Team
