Bulletin: April 2011 (Meeting on 4/22!!!)

by Bobby Pokorny

NOTE: Our next meeting will be on
APRIL 22, 2011

March was another great month. Due to an accident on the Belt, things got started a little late. However, we clocked in 24 members who brought in 17 models, for a meeting that originally looked like it might be a bust. We even voted in a new member. Nice!

March Meeting
DECAL SWAP NIGHT: I think guys brough in decals to swap and sell. I got in late, so I didn’t notice. Oops!

FAVORITE MODEL: A bunch of members brought in what they consider to be their favorite model, at least for that night, and explained to the group why.

MAY MEGA-RAFFLE: In an effort to try to raise funds for certain activities Joe B. donated a 1/35 King Tiger Dragon “white box” with a tank crew. For such a nice prize we’ll have a special raffle in May. Tixx are only $5 a pop. [You might notice a little switcharoo in the name. This is to avoid confusion with the Super Raffle we have every November. ~B2]

NEW MEMBER: He came in for three meeting and showed his work. He builds about everything! So we made him a member. Konstantin L., welcome to the fold!

On the agenda: April
Due to a scheculing conflict at the BBSC, our meeting is being pushed back to 4/22. Tell your friends!

WORK IN PROGRESS NIGHT: What’s on your workbench? Your pledge? Your theme contest entry? Something else? Bring in what your working on to show the group. Be prepared to tell a couple words about your methods. Thanks!

THE TWILIGHT ZONE THEME: It’ll be here sooner than you think! More details here.

2011 MODEL PLEDGE: It seems that we kept the concept entirely too loose for members tastes last year so we’re tightening them up a little in 2011. Please bring in an unbuilt model between January and March to declare as your pledge model. Please have it finished for the OCTOBER MEETING for a display. In between there will be one WIP night, which would be nice to show us your progress (April). After October you may bring back your pledge to 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? Now go have fun with it!

Our next meeting will be on
APRIL 22, 2011
Same time,
Same place!
