Bulletin: September, 2007


by Bobby the Blue

August was looking like it might’ve been a washout with a rain storm hitting during the rush hour, but it seems the BBQ had people showing up anyway! We had 28 members and one guest bringing in 42 models.


CONTEST NIGHT – 3RD QTR 2007: We had the third installment of the annual contest. The votes are in. Your last chance to rack up some extra votes will be in November, the fourth quarter contest.

SUMMER BBQ: Since the turn out for the meeting was slightly off, it was pretty easy to maintain order over the food. A heavy team of dedicated gents worked together to make this a wonderful event. First and foremost we have to thanks Vinny, without his efforts we wouldn’t be able to even have such an occasion. He got us the place. He secured the grills, and picked up the lion share of the grub. You’re too awesome dude! We also need to thank Don Illjes and Mike Crescenzo for assisting with the cooking duties. Other guys to thank for contributing food would be Don for the spring rolls, Gordon for the sausages, and Guy for the cookies. Thanks to the extra hands who helped things move smoothly go to Jimmy, Jeff, and Ray. And to anyone who helped make our second annual another success, THANKS! We’re looking forward to next year!

On the agenda: September

CAMOUFLAGED MODEL NIGHT: This is another one of our theme nights. All you have to do is bring something in that’s in a camo paint scheme. Simple as that. Be prepared to maybe tell the group a couple words on your work.

SWAP NIGHT: Need some space? Have stuff you would like to part with? Bring in goodies to trade or sell to the September meeting. It’s also a good idea to bring some cash. You never know when someone might bring in that grail kit you’ve been looking for and there’s no tab at this bar!


The next theme contest “WE MEAN BUSINESS,” will be honoring the memory of founding member Bert Berg. He’s remembered fondly as being a business man, first and foremost. With that in mind, the sponsors (Frank C, Russ H, Jimmy M, Frank T, and your humble narrator) are bringing a theme contest all about PRODUCT PLACEMENT to the BPMS in December. Does anything else scream out capitalism more than the Christmas Season? With that, we’re asking the members to build something showing product placement. It can be real, eg: a jumbo jet with some markings from some airline, a race-car with sponsor labels, or you can invent something. We encourage the use of imagination! Since we are in the beginning stages, we may yet come up with some special awards, let’s say, for ingenuity. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the sponsors, we’ll be happy to assist!
