BPMS Bulletin: October 2015

by Bobby B2 Blue Pokorny

We had a busy and cluttered meeting, as the facility is doing work inside. We had 19 members and 1 guest who brought in a total of 15 models.

September Meeting

aftermarket accessories: Jimmy, Gordon and Joe came prepared with an assortment of aftermarket parts and discussed everything from what manner of subjects you can find, to how to acquire the products and how to use them. Certainly a very educational night!

NEW MEMBER: Pano Daginis brought in a WIP and came to the required number of meetings so we voted him in. Welcome to the fold!

HOLIDAY DINNER: We started the discussion. At this point we are looking at Nora’s again, Saturday afternoon, December  5th. Save the date.

HVHMG: Don’t forget, Tim’s group will be having its annual show on October 17. See HVHMG.org for details.

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK: The next theme contest has been announced! Find details on the final page of this Bulletin.

raffle: We had a kit sale and a raffle during the meeting. It’ll probably go the same way for the foreseeable future.

On the agenda: OCTOBER

2015 Model Pledge: April was the deadline. Now let’s see the work. Please have it finished for the OCTOBER 2015 meeting, and perhaps a few words on the build. You may bring back your pledge for 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!

Super Raffle: November is the Super Raffle. You get one ticket per new model plus five bonus if you complete your pledge. If you’d like to donate tools, supplies, kits, anything feel free to bring goodies in for the NOVEMBER meeting. Thanks in advance.

Nominations: Fuhgettabouttit! These guys have only put in once year so far. We’ll just be going through the motions.

TROOP SUPPORT: Jimmy Tissot is the Wounded Warrior Project liaison. He’s gotten reports regarding what models and supplies would be most useful. He was 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.
