BPMS Bulletin: July 2022




by Bobby the Blue

JUNE was a big meeting. The Green Theme seemed to compel people to bring work to display. We had 26 members and 1 guest who brought in 37 models, mostly for the theme.

June Meeting

NEW MEMBER: We voted in our first new member, post-pandemic. Jose Vazquez, an armor builder and 3D printer, was voted during the June meeting! Congrats and welcome to the fold!

GREEN MODELS: We had a huge turn-out for this theme. You would expect green aircraft and armor, but we have cars, figures, EVERYTHING! Great display!     

Photo-phone list: Gordon started taking photos of the group for the photo-phone list. If he didn’t take your photo at the last meeting, please see him at the next meeting.  

BPMS SHIRT: Gordon did some leg-work and found that we can order polo-style shirts in a variety of colors for around $30. We will be accepting money for orders at the next meeting.  

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!  

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

On the agenda: JULY

 BEST ONLINE RESOURCES: Over the last couple years, it seems like many of our members have been mentioning various online resources for methods and inspiration to build models. Please bring in a list of your favorite sites and specific channels you like to visit to share with the group.  

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!

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.

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! 

Meeting Date: 
July 15, 2022

Same time,
Same place!
