Results of the HAMS (2020 in) 2021 Model Car Contest

Posted on July 25th, 2021 in Blog by Michael Stucker
 

After a year off because of COVID-19, our model car show returned and it appears to have been a great successs. We had 45 modelers from Texas, Louisiana, & Colorado enter a record 232 models. We even managed to add 4 extra vender tables, which were all sold out.

One note on trophies we forgot to mention during the awards ceremony. The show was called “(2020 in) 2021” because all the trophies (except the theme award) were in our possession before the 2020 show was cancelled. So they carried the 2020 date instead of 2021.

HAMS Model Car Show Update

Posted on July 7th, 2021 in Blog by Michael Stucker
 

We have received a COVID-19 procedure update from the Cypress Creek Christian Church for our show venue. They are still encouraging the wearing of maks, however:

“Because we believe in Putting Love First In All Things, we remain cautious and diligent in regard to COVID and the new variants. For this reason, we still encourage the use of masks. In areas with children, we require masks to be worn. If you choose to not wear a mask, but mindful of others as they may not have the same comfort level as you have.”

See you on the 24th.

December Meeting

Posted on November 17th, 2020 in Blog by Michael Stucker
 

Because of Covid-19 we will not be abe to have our usual Christmas dinner at a restaurant. So instead, we will have a regular meeting on December 11 at the Mendenhall Center. This will be limited to existing club members. We will have a swap meet at the meeting, so bring those kits you wish to trade. In addition, we will have a White Elephant gift swap. Each member who wishes to participate in the gift swap should bring a wrapped (newspaper is fine) unbuilt and complete 1/24 or 1/25 scale model car or truck kit. Wrapped kits will be stacked on a table, numbers will be handed out randomly to participants, and then the kits will be selected in numerical order. Ho, ho, ho.
