We had a generally light August meeting. We had 20 members and 1 guest who brought in a total of 11 models for the quarterly contest.
CONTEST NIGHT – 3Q15: Since the meeting was oddly light for pizza night, it directly impacted the contest turnout. If you were one of those members who took advantage of the August contest, you had a great chance at collecting some extra votes!
PIZZA NIGHT: Possibly one of the top favorite BPMS annual activities. PIZZA! The group made quick work of a dozen Brooklyn-style pies. Your humble narrator broke a personal best (or worst, depending on your perspective) by consuming nearly NINE slices. Good times!
IPMS NATIONALS: Russ provided us with a report of the IPMS Nationals which took place only weeks earlier.
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK: The next theme contest has been announced! Find details on the final page of this Bulletin.
raffle: We had a kit sale and a raffle during the meeting. It’ll probably go the same way for the foreseeable future.
On the agenda: SEPTEMBER
aftermarket accessories: We all like to customize our models. Many of us even buy the accessories and conversions but never use them due to a basic fear of the challenge. Our esteemed panel, Gordon, Jimmy and Joe, will discuss the finer points of using photo-etched, resin, vinyl and other aftermarket parts on your models.
HOLIDAY DINNER: We will start the discussion. At this point we are probably looking at Nora’s again, for a Saturday afternoon in early December. The 5th or the 12th being likely candidates.
2015 Model Pledge: April was the deadline. Now get to work! Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2015, 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!
