Bulletin: October 2010

by Bobby the Blue

September Meeting
SWAP NIGHT: Models were bought, sold, and traded, as expected!

HELL(ER) OF A THEME NIGHT: Hugh had this idea for a HELLER theme night. We ended up having a much better showing for this one than the Revell night. The bulk of the models on display we Heller kits. We started off asking the gents to tell us a couple words about their Heller Models, but ended up asking everyone to speak, even the guests!

HOLIDAY DINNER: We started discussion about the Holiday Dinner because it’ll be here sooner than you think! We’re really thinking about the same place as last year. The food was really good and they had ABBA music the whole night. What more can you ask for? Bill Murphy will be looking into it for us. More details to come!

GUESTS: It pays to have the websites up because we seem to continue attracting interested parties to the meetings. I think we should have a couple guys up for nomination in October!

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
WIP NIGHT: Pretty self-explanatory – bring in your works in progress. A good idea would be to bring in your pledge if you’re still working on it, as it’s “due” in November.

NOMINATIONS: President Ray Keegan has put in his two years. It’s time to nominate the next Prez and Veep. Who will end up in the seats up front?

MODEL PLEDGE: Confused? That’s okay. Just bring in your completed model pledge on or before the November meeting in order to qualify for the extra Super Raffle tickets. It’s that easy! Be sure to let Jeff or me know that you DID bring it in, okay? Writing “PLEDGE” on your kit slip would be a great help! Thanks!

SUPER RAFFLE: The Super Raffle is in November, but this is a good time to start considering if you will want to make donations. If you have models, books, DVDs, etc. that you’d like to throw in, please bring them to the NOVEMBER meeting. Thanks in advance!

Meeting date: October 15th, 2010
Same time, same place!
September was a good month. We had 26 members and 3 guests who brought in 15 models.
