BULLETIN: March 2017

BPMS Bulletin

by Bobby B2 Blue Pokorny

This year has been moving along nicely. The  February meeting had 25 members and no guests who brought in 30 models for display, and plenty up for sale.

February Meeting

Contest NIGHT: This was the first quarter of the BPMS Annual contest. We had an impressive display of talent on the tables. We’d love to see even more for the second quarter!

SHOW US YOUR TOOL: This vulgar sounding activity is more of a simple BPMS tradition. Once a year we ask members to come to the meeting prepared with a tool or method they like to use to make their model building life easier. We had a hand full of members who shared some good ideas with the group. 

2017 Model Pledge: Looks like we got this working nicely now! Bring in an unbuilt model between January and APRIL 2017 to declare as your pledge model. Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2017, for a display. After October 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! Sweet! Easy enough! We already have about one third of the active members signed up. Won’t you join the fun?

MAY MEETING CONFLICT: There will be an issue with our meeting place in May. We can have the BBSC any night EXCEPT our usual night. The group selected MAY 12. You might want to mark it on your calendar now!

JUNE THEME: It’s been settled, Vinny Rosati and your humble narrator chose to sponsor a STAR WARS theme contest. More details HERE.  

raffle: We had another raffle with a remarkable assortment of prizes. The club is always looking for donations for these activities.

On the agenda: MARCH

DECAL SWAP NIGHT: Bring in decals to swap or sell. You may want to bring some money just in case. You never know if that sheet that you always wanted might show up!

FAVORITE MODEL: We all have a favorite model. Over the years it might change, or remain the same. We are asking you to bring your favorite model, built or unbuilt, and be prepared to tell the group why it’s your favorite.  

PHOTO ROSTER: It looks like Russ and Gordon are going to take a crack at this. Gordon will start taking pics of members at the next meeting, so you might want to comb your hair that day! 

Meeting Date:
March 17, 2017
