Star Wars / Star Trek Theme Contest Reminder: December Meeting

December: Star Wars / Star Trek Anniversaries Theme

The December Theme Contest will be a combination STAR WARS / STAR TREK Theme Contest. This will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek and the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. The sponsors are: Jeff Eng, Rob Garitta, Ray Keegan, Scott Margo, and Bobby Pokorny. As you may notice, that’s a lion share of the sci-fi modelers of the club. I’ve designed entry forms that will have a registration number and not names on it. We will, likely, have other people judge this one so we may enter the contest as well. The theme: Build any Star Wars or Trek kit. This is to celebrate 30 / 40 years of the best science fiction that world had ever known. There are TONS of kits out there to kit any taste, style and budget. I recently ran a search for “Star Wars Model” on ebay and found anything from dirt-cheap plastic kits all the way up to limited edition resin kits. With that said we already have a plan for awards, and many certificates for certain works that may include:

“Most Bad-Assed Starship,”
“Best Cross-Over / What If,”
“Unusual Paint Job,”
“Best Hot Rod,”
“Best Legs,”
“Best Figure,”
“You came in that???”
“Best Weathered,”
“Coolest Hero,”
“Toughest Adversary,”
“Best Use of Lego.”

Who can honestly say they don’t have a single Star Trek or Star Wars model in their stacks? So we hope to see a lot of people try something different and build for this. If you should have any questions, feel free to speak with the sponsors directly.
