October meeting was another spacious one. Looks like we’ll have the entire place to ourselves from now on. w00t! We had 24 members and 1 guest in attendance who brought in only 9 models.

September Meeting

Holiday Dinner: We briefly discussed what the club might do for our annual Holiday Dinner. At this point it looks like we’ll be doing the same thing as last year, Red Lobster in Brooklyn. If you have any other ideas please bring them up at the October meeting.

A Home Away From Home: Vinny mentioned that another facility located in Canarsie might be interested in our assistance. This would be a great opportunity for the BPMS since it will leave us a back-up plan if we can’t meet at the BBSC. More details will be forthcoming.

String Theme Night: This didn’t go so well. There was only one model with strings on it. Oh well, better luck next time.

Swap Night: Members brought in stuff to sell and other members got to bring home some good deals.

New Members: We voted in two new members:

Vladimir B.

Charles O.

Welcome to the fold, gents!

You can see pics from each meeting either at the Club Website or on Gordon’s blog: http://gmobile17.blogspot.com/

On the agenda: October

Work In Progress Night: Who doesn’t have kits on the workbench? Bring in some models you’re working on to show the group. We will probably ask you to say a couple words on your work also.

Nominations: Nominations? Fuhgettaboutit! These guys are only in their first year! We’re not letting them off so easily. They have another year coming to them!

Take A Part / Leave A Part: Gordon will bring in a big basin monthly for “Take a Part / Leave a Part.” Please feel free to toss your spares into the big bin too! Gordon will bring the club parts box back for each meeting for members to add or take away from. This is something we can all benefit from!

Generating Money: The club will continue to sell magnets and patches and run raffles and to generate some extra money. Can we count on you to help fund various activities and sponsorships?

Meeting will be held on October 16, 2009
