May was another light meeting. Due to harsh weather predictions, we had merely 21 members and no guests who brought in 15 models.

May Meeting

SECOND QUARTER CONTEST: Time flies! We had an assortment of entries on the tables across the various categories. Each entrant told us a few words about their entries. With the light numbers it was an ideal 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: Spare parts were shared with the group. Your scrap might be gold to someone else!

NOREASTCON: The group discussed the show.

RAFFLE: We had a monthly raffle with an assortment of items. We’ll probably have one in JUNE depending on time.

TROOP SUPPORT: With Hugh in retirement Jimmy 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: June

ASIAN INVASION THEME CONTEST: IT’S FINALLY HERE! I hope you have all been building for this contest because the sponsors have some gorgeous awards ready for this one. Contest details HERE.

BAR-BE-QUE NIGHT: It’s suppertime! What says summer more than a b-b-q? The BPMS will be holding it’s annual BBQ during the June Meeting. The cost will be $8-10 per person. If you want to donate and food, trimmings, sides, desserts, etc, please feel free to do so but we only ask that you bring enough for everyone. 

Meeting Date: June 20, 2014

Same time,
Same place!
