We will not be able to use the Natural Resource District (NRD)  facilities yet.  We will find out on the 22nd whether we will have a meeting on the 22nd.
We will have two presentations on the 17th.  We will have Randy give a presentations on decal applications and Scott will give  a presentation on using metal paint finishes.  That will be useful for those participating in the MiG contest.
If you have a "Works in Progress" for the meeting, please submit pictures to me at mrbesmith@cox.net or Scott Hackney  at scott.hackney@cox.net . During the discussion of your in-progress model, please keep your remarks brief if possible.  The last meeting, it took a long time to go through the pictures.
Also, please refrain from making political comments.  Everybody that attends here is here because they love models.  Lets try to keep it focused on modeling , new kits, the modeling industry, or history of  various subjects that are being modeled.  IF you want to have a "watercooler" session after the meeting, we can arrange that.
When we do return back to the NRD, our first contest will be "Pandemic Plastic">  Any model you finished during the pandemic (still ongoing) is eligible.  Some nice trophies were made for this contest.
Thank you for all of you who participated in the  "Indoor Airshow" at the SAC museum in January.  It was fun and we had a nice display of models.  The event was well attended and we gave out plenty of gliders to kids.
The club recently purchased a display case from the clothing store Parsows that was going out of business.  We paid $250 for it.  Thanks to Randy for finding it, Brant Reinhard for helping pick it up and hauling it in his truck, and Don Joy and helpers at the SAC museum for unloading it.  The display case will be used by our club to display models.  It will be a good way to advertise the club and show off the work by our club members.
Pre-registration for the IPMS Nationals in Las Vegas has been delayed until April 1st, due to Covid.  The KCCon is cancelled in March. We haven't heard anything about SurgiCon in DesMoines. We are still scheduled for Omacon on June 12th.  And, our Nats next year is less than a year and a half away.  So it will start getting busy quick.
Here is what is coming up contest-wise:
 April 17, 2021 Fleacon 17
June 12, 2021 OmaCon 2021
June 12, 2021 Heartland Model Car Nationals
September 18, 2021 Leavenworth Model Show




Hope to see you on Wednesday night,
Brian S.
