A reminder to club members that the December, 2013, HAMS meeting will not be held at the usual location. Instead it will be our Christmas party at Hickory Hollow Restaurant at 101 Heights Blvd., one block north of Washington. So come on out and enjoy the holiday season with your fellow club members. That’s Friday, December 13, starting at 7:00 PM.

(Please note that the club will not be picking up the tab. Everyone will be responsible for buying their own dinners.)

See ya’ll then!


Houston Hobby Shop News

For those of you who haven’t heard, Larry’s Hobbies at I45 and FM1960 has closed. However, Houston is getting a new hobby shop at the end of November. A HobbyTown USA is opening at 2392 Hwy 6 South. They are near the corner of Hwy 6 and Westheimer. It is an 18,000 sq.ft. store. Dave Brissard, who used to own the old Hobbies West in Memorial has been hired to manage their plastic models and books. The store will open on Friday, November 29 (Black Friday), but the official Grand Opening will be December 14.

On another note, if you have been looking for Tenax liquid cement and can’t find it, Papa Ben’s Train Store on Bellaire at Wesleyan has a good supply in stock. While there are other similar products on the market, if you have to have Tenax, get it while you can, as it is not being produced any more.
