The Next Fort Crook Meeting is
 Wednesday, July 17th


Prez Says for July 2019

Hi everyone,

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

No contest is scheduled this month..

I will be conducting a demo on using foil.  I will dedicate this to Marv Howell, who was a master at use aluminum foil on aircraft. I will go over techniques he used to use aluminum foil and I will show a YouTube video of another technique.  Since this is the week of the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11, I will also go over how to foil a lunar module model (remember that is an obsession of mine).

Speaking of Apollo 11.  We are scheduled to have a 10’ X 10’ booth at the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 and the Makers Market at the SAC museum on the 20th.  That is this Saturday.  I will have more information on specifics and setup times at the meeting . 

Some sad news to pass on.  I was informed that long time Ft Crook member, Mike Scholtz passed away on July 12th.  I will have more information on this sad news at the meeting.  Mike was a fine modeler and he was known for enhancing a kit with items found around the home.  We will plan on having a special contest to honor Mike.  More about this at the meeting.

Please keep member John Ogle in your thoughts and prayers.  John is recovering from heart transplant surgery. Latest reports is that is recovering well.

Bring something that you are working on “works in progress.  Please try to keep your comments on your work brief. 

We will also have great raffle prizes again this month.
