Our Next Meeting

Wednesday, October  21, 2020 at 630 PM

Papio Natural Resources District HQ Building

8901 South 154th Street, Omaha 



Hi everyone,

The next meeting for the Ft. Crook IPMS Chapter is this Wednesday, October 21st , 630 PM, at the Natural Resources District Headquarters Building at Wehrspann Lake. 

We are still planning on having our meeting on Wednesday evening.  I will let you know if things change and we are unable to use the facilities because of the recent upsurge of COVID-19 cases. We will leave it up to you to decide if you want to come to the meeting. If we are forced to cancel, I will let you know.  We will then revert to a Zoom meeting.

If you do come to the meeting, we would like you to wear masks sitting in the meeting.  Speakers up in front may take off their masks as they will be socially distant from the remainder of the club members.  In addition, we will have to clean up our areas with supplied wipes and disinfectant.  The NRD has been good to us to allow us to have the meeting room at no cost to the club.  We don’t want to lose our room because we did not take care of ourselves.

We will have a presentation by Scott and Randy on the Very Long Range P-51 Mustang missions.  This is a fascinating story of these escort missions from Iwo Jima in 1945.   This presentation dovetails with the recent release of the Eduard 1/48 VLR P-51D kit. 

We will have a great raffle this month as well.  Up for raffle will be the 1/48 AMK F-14D Super Tomcat, 1/35 Rye Field Model T-34/85 Model 1944 No. 174, 1/72 Eduard Weekend Edition FW-190A-5 Light Fighter, and 1/350 Hobby Boss USS Virginia SSN-774.Some great kits to try to win!!!

We will decide if we want to do the MiG contest in November or wait until next year. We will discuss elections and contests for next year as well.

Bring a work in progress model to or one you completed  to discuss at the meeting.  If you want a picture of your work for us to  project on the screen, send the photo, email your photos to me mrbesmith@cox.net or Scott at scoot.hackney@cox.net

We do have one item coming up.  I signed up for the SAC Museum’s Makers Mart on Saturday, December 5th from 9 AM to 5 PM.  We will discuss how we will work the logistics of that event.

The Christmas Party will be held at our meeting site at the NRD on Dec. 16th.  Randy has arranged to have pizzas delivered from Piezon’s Pizzeria.   We will have the usual gift exchange as well. 

That’s all for now.  See you, hopefully,  Wednesday evening !

Your Prez, Brian
