The BPMS is back with a vengeance! We had 27 members and 2 guests who brought in 61 models, nearly half by Don, and mostly for the first quarterly contest since the reopneing.

May Meeting

CONTEST NIGHT-2Q22: Technically this is our first contest of the year, but the calendar says it’s the second quarter. We had a HUGE number of entries, and the work was impressive. We got to see what some of the guys have been working on during the quarantine.

PARTS BOX: We didn’t have a whole lot of parts, it seemed like the contest was the big attraction.

BPMS 50th Anniversary: It seems perfect timing that the club could get back to meetings in time for our 50th Anniversary. We opened discussions and due to the occasion the group is interested in something more reflective of the celebration. We were kicking around ideas about steak or Italian food possibly during the months of September or October, before the holidays set in. Please continue to explore places that might have a room so we could make this a more intimate party. Discussions will continue!

Photo-Phone List: Gordon addressed the group that he would like to get back to recreating this list. It also makes it easier to associate a name to a face.

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

ZOOM RAFFLES: In the early days of the ZOOM meetings we held raffles with donated items. Unfortunately, your humble narrator had photos of the items and who won them. Well, I did. Last week the computer I kept that data on was officially declared DOA at my local repair shop. If you know who won what, please let us know!

WEEKLY ZOOM: Even though we are back to having regular meetings, the weekly ZOOM will continue! New day and time: Tuesdays at 7:30 PM. Every week EXCEPT for weeks with an in-person meeting.

2019-22 Model Pledge:
2019-22 declaration period is now CLOSED! You already showed me something unbuilt. Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2022, 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!

On the agenda: June

GREEN MODELS: Bring in anything that could be interpreted as GREEN, or contains some green, to put on display. A tank? A Prius? It’s up to you!

SWAP NIGHT: Bring in models to swap or sell. Please also bring cash, you never know what you might find and there is no tab at this bar! 

Meeting date:

June 17, 2022
