upcoming meeting reminder

Hello, the January meeting for the club is this Wednesday, 16 January at 7:00 pm at the Leavenworth Public Library.

The results of the December elections are in (ok, they were in at the meeting, but if you missed them . . .)  Shane Curtis was elected president for the upcoming year, with  Tim Moran as the vice president.  JW Dirske was re-elected treasurer (in what I understand was a landslide), and Mark Gerges as secretary.

The agenda for this week is to discuss the theme for our fall contest which is scheduled for September 21, 2013.  Come with your ideas on a great theme!  If you can’t attend but have an idea (or more than one,) send Shane your comments and he’ll them to the meeting.

 

Region 5 Convention, May 2012

Here’s the flyer for the IPMS Region 5 contest in 19 May 2012, hosted by the IPMS West Central Missouri chapter.  See the flyer under Modelling Links for more details, and we hope to see a good turn out!

Also, thanks for the great turn-out for the January meeting.  Shane has straightened out the room reservations, and for the rest of the year we’ll be meeting in the East Room (through the children’s section to the east wall of the library).  hope to see you at the February meeting. 

If you are interested in doing a demo, or have ideas for things you would like to see done, please post your ideas.

Leavenworth model contest around the corner

We had a good turn-out for the 17 August Leavenworth model club meeting, and want to welcome the new CGSC students who took time away from studying to join us.  Andy Prawitz gave us vacuforming and thermoforming demonstration, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one looking at Mattel vacuform machines on eBay the next day.

IPMS Prison City Modelers contest awards
A small sample of the awards to be given out at the contest. Thanks to Rick Brownlee who designed the awards.

Biggest order of business was final prep for the 24 September model contest here in downtown Leavenworth.  Trophies have been ordered, but it isn’t too late if you want to sponsor a trophy package or be a vendor at the show.  More info is available on the contest pages.

We have one more meeting on 21 September before the contest.  Hope to see you there, and if not, then at the contest on Saturday, 24 September.

If you have noticed the banners on the club site, they are photos taken by some of our members.  Brooks Lyles contributed the photo of the P-38 that has been up the last month, and John Curatola took the inflight photo of the B-17 engines when the aricraft visited Kansas City in 2009.  Thanks to both of them for sharing.
