February 2005 Bulletin

The January meeting was a super first meeting of 2005. Despite the freezing cold, we had 27 members and 2 guests bringing in 29 models.


New Regime: This was the first meeting with the new regime in place. Our new Prez is Vinny R., and the Veep is Jimmy T. Good work guys!

Model of the Year Competition: This was the final throw down to see who reigns supreme in each category. The three models with the highest vote counts by different modelers got to compete. Winners will be announced during the February meeting.

Kit Sale Night: Goodies were up for grabs and a nice variety at that. Plenty of deals that night.

First New Member of the Year! We voted in our first new member of 2005, Kay! Welcome to the fold!

On the agenda: February

Contest Night 1st Qtr: This will be the first installment of the annual contest for 2005. Start racking up votes NOW!

Show Us Your Tool: Everyone’s favorite activity, and not nearly as vulgar as the name may let on. Just bring in some item that you use in modeling that you think the others might be interested in knowing about. It can be a tool, adhesive, putty, an adaptation of a technique, etc. Bring it in and let us know about it!

BTW: Don’t forget to fill out all your forms. There are models being displayed without the kit slips. I can’t keep track of the model count accurately unless all paperwork is filled out.

Our Current Location: Bergen Beach Sports Complex
From Belt Pkwy: Take exit 11N - Flatbush Avenue North. Go North on Flatbush Avenue and make a right onto Avenue U (Kings Plaza). Continue on Avenue U to Bergen Avenue, Make a right onto Bergen Avenue. Go straight on Bergen Avenue 3 blocks. Sports Complex on left.

In The Movies: Ted and Phil are sponsoring "In The Movies" in for June 2005. Basically build something, ANYTHING from a movie. More details will be forthcoming.

We don’t have a theme for December yet. Do you want to sponsor something? Some concepts we’ve kicked around are: Experimental, Take One for the Team, and Things That Suck. Contact the officers if you want to sponsor any of those or anything else for December.
