New BOD Same As The Old BOD

January 19, 2017 at 6:23 pm | Blog | No comment


We held our annual election at the January meeting and the club’s Board of Directors has not changed from last year. Rob McQuown continues as President, Eric Stone as VP, and Mike Stucker as Secretary & Treasurer.

Our first kit raffle of the year was won by Skylar Allred, who promptly selected the 1/16 scale 1931 Ford Model A Hot Rod Roadster by Minicraft.

Congratulations to Skylar and the BOD.

Our first meeting of the new year is this Friday (January 13 – ooo… Friday the 13th). You won’t want to miss it for two reasons:
1. Officer Elections
2. Our first kit raffle of the year. (All dues paying members present at the meeting are eligible.)

See you there!
