2012 IPMS/USA Region 5 Website of the Year        2011 and 2013 IPMS/USA Region 5 Chapter of the Year

IPMS Fort Crook is a club consisting of scale modelers who get together once a month to trade ideas and just have fun. We meet at 6:30 P.M. on the THIRD Wednesday of each month at the NRD Headquarters located at 154th and Giles Road.

During our monthly meetings, we talk about the latest new kit and after-market releases, and usually have informal modeling seminars to help everyone hone their modeling skills.  Sometimes, the meeting will feature a special guest speaker and almost every month features a modeling contest or theme night. 

Our membership runs the full gambit of modeling. We have aircraft, armor, ship, auto, sci-fi, and figure modelers with skill levels from the beginner to the expert and all levels in between. Most of all, we are a group of modelers who get together each month to talk modeling and most of all just have fun. Membership in IPMS/USA is encouraged, but not required.

 

November Message from the President by Don Joy

Posted: November 12th, 2017

Prez Sez – November

 

Our next meeting is 6:30PM, Wednesday, Nov 15th, at the National Resource District, 156th and Giles. 168th remains closed north of Giles, so keep that in mind.

Two meetings to go for the year. November will be this Wednesday and will cover the following:

2018 officers were declared by acclamation at the October meeting. They are:

President: Randy

Vice President: Carl

Secretary for life: Bill

Treasurer: Brian Smith

Contest Director (Volunteer): Gio

 

We will vote for member of the year. The nominees are: Well, I guess I misplaced the list. I will send a follow-up before Wednesday…

 

Contest: Model/Modeler of the year. Bring in your 1 best model built this last year to be judged by national judges to be the club’s best.

Selection of contests for 2018: Bring in your ideas for club contests for 2018 that you would like to sponsor.  We will take all ideas, put the on the big board and whittle them down to the 5 or six contests we need for the year.

There will be some discussion on the 2018 Omacon as it may not be at the museum.

Presentation: Brian Smith will give us a visual walkthrough of the air museums of Seattle.

Toys for Tots: In previous years, we have brought snap-tite kits to the Christmas party for Toys for Tots. This is changed as the campaigns have shut down a week or more before our party to allow time to get the toys delivered. There are many places around town that take Toys for Tots donations and I urge everyone to buy that snap-tite kit and get it donated before the deadline.

 

Schedule for December:

Dec 7 (NOTE THE DATE CHANGE!!!) - 7:00 Business Meeting at Sump Library in Papillion. This includes the gift exchange and will be discussed at the November meeting.

Dec 20 – 6:30 Christmas Party, Valentino’s, 108th & L. Club will pay for members, You must pay for guests.

See you Wednesday!

Don
