Bulletin: July 2010

June was another amazing month. Great food! Great display! We had 27 members and one guest who brought in 39 models, 26 of which were for the Naval Aviation Theme Contest.

June Meeting

BBQ NIGHT: Can this group eat or what? There were plenty of vittles and the members made quick work of it all, but shockingly, there were leftovers! More on that later. Special thanks to Vinny for providing the facilities for cooking AND taking the helm behind the grille. Thanks to the many hands who assisted with the food duties!

40 YEARS OF THE BPMS: I brought up at a recent meeting that 2011 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the BPMS but it seems that after further research that 1972 was actual the start. So now we have extra time to figure out how we’ll celebrate it. We have a year and a half to set up this bash. It should be fun! A dinner is certainly in order. Maybe we should figure out a way to tie in a theme contest. Ideas? Let the officers know!

You can see pics from each meeting on Gordon’s blog:

On the agenda: July
A NIGHT OF REVELL-RY: This is a model display theme night. Simply bring in something you’ve built by Revell. Depending on time we might ask everyone to tell us a couple words about their models.

BBQ NIGHT PT 2: We actually had some left over burgers and franks from the last meeting so we’ll be finishing those off this month. We’re only asking for a couple bucks to cover buns and stuff. Sodas won’t be free this month, however.

T-SHIRTS: The first wave of shirts arrived a couple months ago. The BPMS blue and white never looked better! Our t-shirt artist came up with another concept that we’re taking orders for now too. Ask about it at the meeting. Approx. $11 a pop.

TAKE A PART / LEAVE A PART: Gordon will bring in a big basin monthly for “Take a Part / Leave a Part.” Please feel free to toss your spares into the big bin too! Gordon will bring the club parts box back for each meeting for members to add or take away from. This is something we can all benefit from!

Next meeting date:
July 16, 2010
Same time, same place!
