The Next Fort Crook Meeting is
 Wednesday, September 18th

 

Hi everyone,

The next meeting for the Ft. Crook IPMS Chapter is this Wednesday, September 18th , 630 PM, at the Natural Resources District Headquarters Building at Wehrspann Lake.

Toon Tanks is the contest this month. Just from me asking on Facebook, it looks like we will have a bunch of toon tanks entered in the contest.

Also on Wednesday, Scott Hackney is going to give a presentation on the shoot down of Admiral Yamamoto’s aircraft in 1943.  Scott will present about the tactics and  the interception.  This is a very appropriate topic as the 1/48 Tamiya P-38 is being released in October.

Bring something that you are working on again for  “works in progress. 

Our next contests will be Model of the Year and the Eastern Front  in November 

Saturday, the 21st is the Leavenworth contest.  Hopefully, we will have a good contingent from our club attending.

Also found out that, Carl Rath will be leaving our club for some time.  He has some personal family issues he needs to tend with out of state.  Carl hopes he will be able to pop back here from time-to-time. 

In October, we will have our annual kit auction.  Go look at your stash and see if you can part with some kits. You can bring up to 5 individual kits (or books, supplies, etc) or 5 bundles of kits. On the kit, put a label with your name and starting bid.  Rule of thumb, keep the starting bid low. If you have something good, the bidding process will bring the price up.    

We will also have great raffle prizes again this month.
