Elmbridge Model Club

The Elmbridge Model Club is based in Surrey, it has a Membership of over 200, which the Club is keen to expand, and is proudly regarded to be one of the largest and most successful multi discipline Model Clubs in the UK.

Potential new members are encouraged to visit the sites and a warm welcome and introduction to the Club is guaranteed.

The Club currently owns two large secure purpose-built sites.


Egham

The Boat and Car site are situated in Egham, which has a lake to cater for a variety of marine models, including IC and electric power boats, scale models and sailing.

The site regularly hosts National Regatta's attracting competitors and spectators from throughout the UK.

The site also provides two off-road tracks for 1/5th scale, and 1/8 - 1/10, RC car racing.


On site facilities include a Club House, toilet facilities and storage containers for rescue boats and maintenance equipment. The lake site has two large jetties from which boats are operated, and the racetrack has a rostrum and pits for drivers.

Both Sections have secure on site car parking facilities.

Ripley

The Air site is  situated in Ripley, which offers similar facilities to that at Egham, and a mown pits area and runway, from which RC aircraft take off and land. The Section caters for a wide range of RC IC and electric powered aircraft.


Slope Soaring

Although not owned or managed by the Club, Members are also able to enjoy the southerly wind slope soaring facilities at a site situated at Colley Hill in Reigate.

Public Liability Insurance

As a member you are not covered for Public Liability under the club’s main insurance.

It is important to point out that the primary function of the Public Liability insurance is to protect the member, You in the event of a claim being made against You following an incident. 

If a member were to be found responsible for an incident whilst using a model and had no insurance, then they would be personally liable for any damages or costs.

‘Boat to Boat’ and ‘Car to Car’ damage whilst on the water or track is not normally covered as this is considered to be a hazard of the hobby.

All Junior Members under the age of 18 will require public liability insurance and are to be accompanied by a Parent or Guardian who will be responsible for their actions.

Racing

If you participate in racing you will be required to be a member of that organisation and insurance cover you race under. The club insurance does not cover you


Cost

I would like to point out the costs associated with this additional Membership and Insurance are not onerous and some offer senior and disability discount.
