November was a jam-packed meeting full of stuff to do. We had 23 members and 1 guest who brought in a dozen models most of which were contest entries.

November Meeting

COntest night – 4th qtr 2013: This was the final installment of the quarterly BPMS Annual Contest. Another year in the books.   

super raffle: This is the reason why you must fill out your paperwork at each meeting. For every new model you brought in over the course of the year you get ONE SUPER RAFFLE TICKET. We had 246 raffle tickets out there that night. Phil Benson was top guy with 23 for the year, followed closely by Joe Bergman. We had nearly 100 raffle items so the chance of winning something was pretty high.  

Holiday Dinner: At the time that this is being written, the dinner had not yet occurred, but if history is any indicator, it was probably a good time! This year we met at NORA’S PARK BENCH CAFÉ in Brooklyn on December 14th -- TOMORROW! 
Details / Directions HERE

TROOP SUPPORT: With Hugh in retirement Jimmy Tissot volunteered to take over the role as Wounded Warrior Project liaison. He’s gotten reports regarding what models and supplies would be most useful. He was recently advised of a hub to ship to closer to home, so that’s good. As always, donations of any models and supplies are welcome.

PHOTO ROSTER: Hugh can provide the files and write up the process I use in PowerPoint and PhotoManager to put the pages together. Can anyone take this job over? Hello? Anyone? Contact Bobby or Jeff at the meeting.

On the agenda: December

SLOPPY SECONDS THEME: IT’S FINALLY HERE!  You had plenty of time to prepare for this. Contest details HERE.

Holiday desserts: It’s the holiday meeting, so some tasty treats are in order here! Feel free to bring in any desserts or other treats you may want to share with the group. Coffee will be served.   

AWARDS: At the time this is being written I already crunched the contest numbers. The challenge will be having the awards printed in time. If all goes well, we’ll see who YOU voted for in 2013 and who the TOP GUN will be!

RAFFLE: We may have a monthly raffle with an assortment of items depending on time.
