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.

June 2020 Club Meeting

Posted on June 1st, 2020 in Blog by Michael Stucker
 

The Mendenhall Center is open as of June 1. Our meeting, as scheduled for the 12th will happen. We will have to obey social distancing restrictions, which for us means one person per table. We will be in our usual room 101. This does mean that the meeting will need to be restricted to club members only – NO VISITORS – so that we can maintain distancing. The wearing of masks is optional. Hope to see some you then.
