Tug tow­ing will pull in crowds

Rutherglen Reformer - - News from the Pews -

Richmond Park Model Boat Club will host Scot­land’s only tug tow­ing event on Sunday, June 11.

The event at­tracts com­pet­i­tive teams from Eng­land and Wales and the club have built the largest set of docks in the coun­try es­pe­cially for this week­end.

The home team’s tug is named after for­mer mem­ber, Peter Shep­herd.

Teams are re­quired to tow their boat around a course with their ra­dio controlled tugs, with­out hit­ting any­thing.

Modellers can spend hours on the small­est of de­tails, with the tugs ef­fec­tively work­ing repli­cas of the real thing.

With wa­ter lev­els in the pond at a low level, the race is wide open.

A tombola will also take place while young and old can en­joy a shot on the wa­ter them­selves with the pop­u­lar Hands on TUGGZ.
