April was a light meeting. Since it was the same night as two religious holidays we had merely 19 members and no guests who brought in 8 models.

April Meeting

WOUNDED WARRIORS: Jimmy provided us with an update on operations. They have supplies but NON-military subjects would be greatly appreciated.

WORK IN PROGRESS NIGHT: Due to the light turn-out we didn’t have much on the tables at all so we had everyone tell us about their models, WiP or completed, regardless.

2014 Model Pledge: It’s another year! Have you chosen something to build by OCTOBER so you can ear FIVE extra super raffle tickets? We’re still making the list.  Details below. 

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: May

SECOND QUARTER CONTEST: Time flies! We’re already up to the second installment of the BPMS Annual Contest. Bring in a model that hasn’t competed in a previous quarterly contest to enter into one of our six categories. Time to rack up some votes! Who will be the first winner of the FRANK TRIPOLI AWARD? We’ll find out in December.

Parts Box: We all have a parts box. Please bring yours in to share with the group. Your scrap might be gold to someone else!

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