BPMS Bulletin: October 2022

BPMS Bulletin

by Bobby B2 Blue Pokorny

September meeting was action packed! We had 28 members and one guest who brought in 21 models for the final meeting of the summer of 2022.

September Meeting

MEETING CHANGES: We had a couple of changes during the meeting. We started earlier, around 7:30 PM to make sure we were able to get all our activities done in time. Gordon also got a feed to work on Facebook. We will be refining both of these in the coming months.

NEW MEMBER: Chi Wang has been visiting the club for years, but now that he’s a NY resident again, it was time to vote him in! Welcome to the fold!

SPEED PAINTING: Kevin K. and your humble narrator demonstrated how to use Speed Paints by ARMY PAINTER. The verdict, it can really save time when building smaller figures. It must be a good idea because rival companies have announced competing products!

SWAP NIGHT: Members brought in all sorts of goodies to swap and sell.

BPMS SHIRTS: The shirts arrived and Gordon handed them out! Thanks!

DECEMBER THEME CONTEST: With the year speeding by we can look forward to the December theme contest: The Golden Age of AURORA Models. Find contest details on the final page of this Bulletin. Sponsored by Joe B and Kevin K. . 

Raffle: We had another fun raffle this month. We’ll likely have another for October. The club is always looking for donations for these activities.

Photo-phone list:
Gordon started taking photos of the group for the photo-phone list. If he didn’t take your photo at the last meeting, please see him at the next meeting.

WEEKLY ZOOM: Even though we are back to having regular meetings, the weekly ZOOM will continue! New day and time: Tuesdays at 7:30 PM. Every week EXCEPT for weeks with an in-person meeting.

On the agenda: OCTOBER

NOMINATIONS: Prez Tom and Veep Tom have had an unusual term. Maybe we should ask them to sit in for a NORMAL year?

2019-22 Model Pledge: 2019-22 declaration period is now CLOSED! You already showed me something unbuilt. Please have it finished for OCTOBER 2022, for a display. Also, be ready to tell the group a couple words on your build. 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!

SUPER RAFFLE: The Super Raffle is in November, but you might want to start looking through your stacks for items you may want to donate. Thanks in advance!

BPMS 50th Anniversary: By the time of the next in-house meeting the 50th Anniversary celebration will have been in the book. However, we should be getting this Bulletin out ahead, so here’s a reminder:
