Bulletin: July 2016

by Bobby B2 Blue Pokorny 

JUNE was a big meeting. The theme contest and BBQ had people showing up for sure! We had 22 members and 3 guests who brought in 24 models, mostly for the theme contest. 

June Meeting 
BBQ Night: What’s summertime without a BBQ? We held our annual BBQ and it went well. Thanks to the guys who supplied the shindig and the gents who worked the grill. Great job! 

BPMS BLACK-OUT THEME CONTEST: The theme was finally upon us! All we asked was for the members to build something that could be tied into the Basic Black Theme. We had a lot of nice work on the tables, and the winners were as follows: 

  • Kamila L - Beetle 
  • Kevin A - Joachin Peiper 
Black (3rd) 
  • Ray W - U-2 
Blacker (2nd) 
  • Howell S - Black Templars 
Blackest (1st) 
  • Angelo T - F-14A Black Tomcat 
Special Awards:
  • Black Knight: Ed J - U-505 U-Boat 
  • Black Sheep: Israel A - Black Beauty 
  • Black & Blue: Tim G - Warhammer 
  • Paint It Black: Bob E - Model T 

The quality of the work was top notch which made our job as judges very difficult. We would like to thank all the members who built for the theme and thanks to my co-sponsors, Frank, Russ and Kosta for sponsoring a fun theme for the group to build for. 

Raffle: We didn’t have a raffle this month. We’ll likely be starting it up again for July.

On the agenda: JULY 
BASIC SKILLS - SEAMS: We haven’t had a basic skills clinic in a while, what batter place to start up again at than seam filling? There are as many techniques as there are modelers, so this should be pretty educational. At this point Frank and your humble narrator will be your hosts, but we encourage you to bring in or be prepared to tell the group about some methods you employ. 

Meeting Date:
JULY 15, 2016

Same time,
Same place!

December Theme Contest: ISLAND HOPPING

Island Hopping
The War in the Pacific: 1941-1945
Theme Contest

December 16, 2016

This December 2016 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the start of the War in the Pacific. To commemorate this solemn occasion, the sponsors simply want the group to build something that was used in the Pacific Theater during World War II.

There are plenty of options for land, sea, or air for this theme, so you can probably just pull something from the stack and get to work!  Just pick something that was used from the attack of Pearl harbor through the victory in the Pacific!

Please contact the sponsors with questions.
