  • Hi everyone,

    The next meeting for the Ft. Crook IPMS Chapter is  Wednesday, September 15th , 630 PM, at the Natural Resources District Headquarters Building at Wehrspann Lake. 

    We will have an “Open” Contest for this month.  Bring whatever you have built recently for this contest. There will be Hobbytown Gift Cards for the winners of 1st-3rd place.

    We will have a raffle this month.

    We will have a demonstration by Scott Hackney on using the new Ammo drybrush paints.   He says it works real well and is easier than using other paints to dry brush.

    We will also have a presentation on using glue loopers. 

    In addition, we will have a short presentation about the 2021 National Contest in Las Vegas.

    We will also have a Works in Progress.

    Thanks to all of those who helped with Aviation Stem Day at Millard Airport on September 4th.  There was a good turnout. 

    We will have tables at Nukecon, September 24,-26, 2021  at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs. Contact John Lanning about participating at that,  Please see John about participating in that event.

    Next month will be our annual kit auction.    You can bring 5 kits, or 5 kit bundles.  Put your name and your starting bid on the kit.  A Word of advice, if you try to have a high starting price on the kit, you will hear crickets.  Bidding will increase by 50 cents up to $10.  After $10, the bidding will increase by dollar increments. The club will keep 10 percent of the money.  Don Joy will keep tabs of what is being bought and sold.  So, look in your stash and see if there is anything you have that you may not get to for a long time or something you can part with.  

    The next business meeting is Thursday, September 30th at the Sump Library in Papillion.

    Here are some upcoming contests:
