BPMS 5/20/2011 Photos by Hugh A.

Message from Gordon

Well, on my rush to finish my model for the 2nd Quarter Contest I forgot to bring the most important thing for photography... the camera! I had to settle to use my camera phone to take some photos. However, Hugh was kind enough to take a couple of photos for me in case my photos don't come out right since camera phone have certain limitations. Thanks Hugh for helping me out. Click the link below to see the photos.

In case you are wondering, my photos actually came out right and are being schedule to post daily. Look for my posts starting from 5/21/11 to 6/2/11.

Bulletin: May 2011

by Bobby Pokorny
April turned out to be a great month despite the scheduling problem. Due to an accident on the Belt, things got started a little late. However, we clocked in 31 members and one guest who brought in 24 models, for a busy meeting.

April Meeting
WORK IN PROGRESS NIGHT: What’s on your workbench? Your pledge? Your theme contest entry? Something else? Members brought in 16 WIPs that they’re working on and spoke about it with the group. Looks like we should have several Robby the Robots for the theme contest….

You can see pics from each meeting either at the Club Photo-Blog: http://gmobile17.blogspot.com/
 On the agenda: May
PART-BOX NIGHT: Do you have a box of spare parts that you would like to share with the group? Feel free to bring it in! We’ll have tables dedicated to this. If you don’t want to bring it home, you can toss it into the parts bin the Gordon brings each month.

ANNUAL CONTEST – 2Q2011: Time flies. We’re already up to the second installment of the BPMS Quarterly Contest. Just bring in work that hasn’t been in a contest, and fill out all the proper paperwork to compete.

MAY MEGA-RAFFLE: In an effort to try to raise funds for certain activities Joe Bergman 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. The drawing will be THIS MONTH! This will be your last chance to buy tickets! [You might notice a little switcharoo in the name. This is to avoid confusion with the Super Raffle we have every November. ~B2]

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
MAY 20, 2011

See you at the Bergen Beach Sports Complex!
