Summer Theme Contest: NASA 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing



NASA
50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

It’s been 50 years since man set foot on the moon. What better way to celebrate the momentous occasion than with a theme contest? Simply build something NASA / US Space Program related that is real or hypothetical. No Soviets. No Red Bull. No Amazon. No Sci-Fi.

Great work! Now the slates are clean and time to start a new year!


HOLIDAY DESSERTS: Thanks to everyone who brought in some goodies, and there was plenty!

HOLIDAY DINNER: The weather was nice and we had an amazing time!  

raffle: We had a raffle during the meeting. It’ll probably go the same way for the foreseeable future.

END OF AN ERA: With the close of 2018, so was the completion of the term BPMS President Joe Bergman.  As a president who led from the front, he challenged the group to build more and we surpassed the 300 models barrier in 2018! We thanked Joe for his efforts and presented him with a plaque for his service to the club. 


On the agenda: JANUARY

NEW REGIME: We have two new faces in the front of the room this month. Our new President will be Tom Knoll and the Vice President will be Tom Govia! Let’s welcome them to the job with another banner year!

2019 Model Pledge: Looks like we got this working nicely now! Bring in an unbuilt model between January and APRIL 2017 to declare as your pledge model. Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2018, for a display. After October you may bring back your pledge for the November meeting for the last contest of the year. For your efforts you get an additional FIVE Super Raffle tickets for completing your pledge! Sweet! Easy enough!

KIT SALE: Bring kits to sell and cash to buy with. There’s no tab at this bar!

JULY THEME: We have a commitment!

Bulletin
by Bobby B2 Blue Pokorny




November was an excellent meeting. We had 22 members and one guest (Rommel) who brought in 22 models, most of which were for the  quarterly  contest.

November Meeting

COntest night – 4th qtr 2018: This was the final installment of the quarterly BPMS Annual Contest. Now it’s my turn to crunch the numbers and see who we voted for in 2018.

super raffle: This is the reason why you must fill out your paperwork at each meeting. For every new model you brought in over the course of the year you got ONE SUPER RAFFLE TICKET. We had OVER 300 tickets in for the year. Nice job! Can we beat that in 2019? Also, thank you to everyone who made donations!

HOLIDAY DINNER: At the time I am writing this it has yet to occur, but historically it’s always been a blast. Nora’s always has good food and mix that with good friends and it’s an equation for a good time!

raffle: We did NOT have a regular raffle during the meeting. It’ll probably return in December.


On the agenda: DECEMBER

RIVETS THEME CONTEST: IT’S HERE! The December theme contest is almost upon us! RIVETS! Find contest details on the final page of this Bulletin. Sponsored by Russ Holcomb and Tom Knoll.

HOLIDAY DESSERTS: ‘Tis the season! Why not close out the year with your BPMS buddies and some tasty treats? You are cordially invited to bring some sort of dessert or snack or treat to this meeting. Thanks in advance!

AWARDS CEREMONY: At the time this is being written, I have the numbers crunched. Hopefully I’ll have the awards printed out in time so we can see who the winners are for 2018.


2019 THEMES: With the December meeting upon us, and the RIVETS Theme is here, we need to look forward to 2019. Vinny would like to sponsor a NASA theme for June. Anyone wants to join him?
