Happy New Year! Hope all is well with you and your families.

The Houston Automotive Modelers Society’s first meeting of 2018 will take place at 7:00 this coming Friday (January 12) at our usual location of the Trini Mendenhall Community Center. We’ve got several things happening at this meeting.

First, dues are due. $20 for adults and $15 for anyone under the age of 18.

Second, it will be raffle night. All dues paying members may participate in our quarterly kit raffle. Hence, a good reason to pay your dues on Friday.

Third, we have big news in regards to our model car show this summer. Rob will have the details. (And don’t worry, its all good.)

And finally (at least as far as I know), I have a box of model cars in various stages of build to give away for free. Rick Cotton from IPMS-Houston acquired them somewhere is is giving them us (’cause he’s not a car guy).
