BPMS Bulletin: November 2013


by Judge Bax0jayz
October was a meeting under a hunter’s moon. We had 27 members and 1 guest who brought in 10 models most of which were pledges.

October Meeting

2013 Model Pledge: Not a bad showing. About a half dozen members brought in their completed model pledges and told us about the builds. I think some of the more notable works were Charlie’s paper model ship, HMS Badsworth, Phil’s ’34 Duezie, Russ’ use of magnets with his Cutlass and Kamila’s Statue of Liberty that lit up!

NOMINATIONS: Ray and Gordon have only had their posts for a year. They were elected to another year, per BPMS tradition.  

HOLIDAY DINNER: After the way I dropped the ball in September several members stepped up with various options where we could go. Thanks to you all for your effort. We had to quickly boil it down to two choices and went with:

RAFFLE: We had a monthly raffle with an assortment of items. We had something for everyone’s tastes.

Trophy package: We sponsored a trophy package for the HVHMG 2013 Show, The Cold War, which was on October 19.

TROOP SUPPORT: With Hugh in retirement Jimmy volunteered to take over the role as Wounded Warrior Project liaison. He’s gotten reports regarding what models and supplies would be most useful. As always, donations of any models and supplies are welcome. 

PHOTO ROSTER: Hugh can provide the files and write up the process I use in PowerPoint and PhotoManager to put the pages together. Can anyone take this job over? Hello? Anyone? Contact Bobby or Jeff at the meeting.

On the agenda: November

COntest night – 4th qtr 2013: This is the final installment of the quarterly BPMS Annual Contest so it is your last chance to try to rack up some votes for 2013. Pledge models are welcome as well as anything you haven’t already entered into a contest previously.  

super raffle: This is the reason why you must fill out your paperwork at each meeting. For every new model you brought in over the course of the year you get ONE SUPER RAFFLE TICKET. If you completed your pledge model you get an additional FIVE super raffle tickets. You cannot buy tickets for this raffle. You must earn them! The more you built, the more tixx you get. We’ve been buying items for the Super Raffle all year, but if you would like to donate anything, feel free to do so! Who built the most in 2013? I’ll announce the name at the meeting.
