Hi everyone,

The next event for the Ft. Crook IPMS Chapter is this Wednesday, April 17th, 630 PM, at 16th   at the Natural Resources District Headquarters Building at Wehrspann Lake.

There is no contest this month. The next contest in May is Helicopters or VTOL Aircraft.

We will have demos for the April meeting.  These will include:

Photo Etch Parts- Steve Finley

3D Printed Parts- Don Joy and Brian Smith

Bring something that you are working on “works in progress

We will also have another great raffle this month, with a couple of the latest “hot’ kits.

Bill Whipple has the Toon Tanks!!   We will do a raffle to distribute the kits. Those participating will receive a number which will match a number on the kit. That is the model you will receive.  Each kit will cost $5 to those participating.  The contest for this will be in September. 

John Lanning will have some information on O Comic Con, which is June 28-30th at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs.

I have not checked with the SAC Museum whether we are participating in Helicopter Day on May 18th.  The director had suggested us participating in that event.  It also ties in with our May contest. So, I will check on that.

Also Mike Whye found out that the Great Plains Wing (CAF) will be having a Fly-in/Drive-in Day this year on August 10, 2019 at Council Bluffs Airport. It will be all day affair as we have a B-25 Bomber coming in to give rides. The Pancake Man will be here again. They will have space for our club to display models.  This is also the final day of the IPMS Nationals in Chattanooga.  So, some members may not be able to participate.

Thanks to all of you who participated in OmaCon.  Although, we missed many of our friends from Kansas City due to the flooding on th Missouri River creating detour problems, we still had a good turnout.  The raffle was a bit hit and helped made us break even for the event.  We will be using this same venue for next year’s OmaCon.

Congratulations on those who went to the Des Moines show.  Randy Fields did very well, including winning the Judges Grand award.
