February felt like a strangely light meeting, yet we had better numbers than January. We had 23 members and no guests who brought in 26 models for the first contest of 2014.

February Meeting

WOUNDED WARRIORS: We already got a confirmation for the donation that the club made in the name of Frank Tripoli.

Contest NIGHT: This was the first quarter of the BPMS Annual contest. We had an impressive display of talent on the tables. We’d love to see more for the second quarter.

SHOW US YOUR TOOL: This vulgar sounding activity is more of a simple BPMS tradition. Once a year we ask members to come to the meeting prepared with a tool or method they like to use to make their model building life easier. We only had a hand full of members who remembered to bring in items, but it was useful nonetheless. 

Model Talk: Each member told us a couple words about the models that were brought in. 

TROPHIES: We got a couple requests for money for trophy packages but the group voted them both down.   

2014 Model Pledge: It’s another year! Have you chosen something to build by OCTOBER so you can ear FIVE extra super raffle tickets? We’re still making the list.  Details below. 

RAFFLE: We had a nice assortment of kits, books, and supplies up for raffle. We’re accepting donations.

TROOP SUPPORT: With Hugh in retirement Jimmy Tissot volunteered to take over the role as Wounded Warrior Project liaison. He’s gotten reports regarding what models and supplies would be most useful. He was recently advised of a hub to ship to closer to home, so that’s good. 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: March

FAV MODEL: We all have a favorite model. It might change, or remain the same. We are asking you to bring your fav model, built or unbuilt, and be prepared to tell the group why it’s your favorite.   

DECAL SWAP NIGHT: Bring in decals to swap or sell. You may want to bring some case. You never know if that sheet you always wanted might show up!

RAFFLE: We may have a monthly raffle with an assortment of items depending on time. 

Meeting Date:
March 21, 2014

Same Time,
Same Place!
