Summer Theme Contest: NASA 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

It’s been 50 years since man set foot on the moon. What better way to celebrate the momentous occasion than with a theme contest? Simply build something NASA / US Space Program related that is real or hypothetical. No Soviets. No Red Bull. No Amazon. No Sci-Fi.

Frank Tripoli Memorial

Great work! Now the slates are clean and time to start a new year!

HOLIDAY DESSERTS: Thanks to everyone who brought in some goodies, and there was plenty!

HOLIDAY DINNER: The weather was nice and we had an amazing time!  

raffle: We had a raffle during the meeting. It’ll probably go the same way for the foreseeable future.

END OF AN ERA: With the close of 2018, so was the completion of the term BPMS President Joe Bergman.  As a president who led from the front, he challenged the group to build more and we surpassed the 300 models barrier in 2018! We thanked Joe for his efforts and presented him with a plaque for his service to the club. 

On the agenda: JANUARY

NEW REGIME: We have two new faces in the front of the room this month. Our new President will be Tom Knoll and the Vice President will be Tom Govia! Let’s welcome them to the job with another banner year!

2019 Model Pledge: Looks like we got this working nicely now! Bring in an unbuilt model between January and APRIL 2017 to declare as your pledge model. Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2018, for a display. After October you may bring back your pledge for the November meeting for the last contest of the year. For your efforts you get an additional FIVE Super Raffle tickets for completing your pledge! Sweet! Easy enough!

KIT SALE: Bring kits to sell and cash to buy with. There’s no tab at this bar!

JULY THEME: We have a commitment!
