BPMS Bulletin: September 2011

We hope everyone made it through the hurricane okay!


by Bobby the Blue
August was a jam-packed meeting with the quarterly contest AND pizza night! We clocked in 29 members and 1 guest who brought in 26 models, for a busy meeting.

August Meeting
BPMS ANNUAL CONTEST – 3Q2011: I’m looking at the paperwork and it looks like we had a pretty good showing of about 20 models for the contest. It also looks like it was a good scattering as there are votes in all categories. Good show!

PIZZA NIGHT: This is the biggest event of the year, and I MISSED IT! As a result the club was able to cut back by two pizzas. Well done, the night ended with only three left over slices!

REGION TWO: The club voted to sponsor a trophy package. We held a special raffle for the cause. The show is coming up in October in New Jersey. More details will be available at the meeting.

NEW MEMBER: She attended three meetings and builds models, therefore, Kamilla L. was voted in as our latest member! You may also know her as Konstantin’s daughter.
Welcome to the fold!

You can see pics from each meeting either at the Photo-Blog:

On the agenda: September
DAWN OF MODELING THEME: In the beginning, there was AURORA! Please bring in any Aurora models you may have, (built or unbuilt) and please be prepared to tell the group a couple words about them. It’s just a display, not a contest. No worries!

SWAP NIGHT: Bring in stuff to trade or sell. It would also be a good idea to bring a little cash with you. You never know when that elusive kit might show up, and there’s no tab at this bar!

2011 MODEL PLEDGE: How's your progress? Your Model Pledges are due in OCTOBER! Better get things in gear!

MONOGRAM THEME CONTEST: Build a Monogram Model. Easy as that! More HERE:

Our next meeting will be on
SEPTEMBER 16, 2011
Same time, same place!

See you at the Bergen Beach Sports Complex!
