December 2010 Meeting Recap

posted Dec 31, 2010, 8:42 AM by Brian Lloyd
Hi everybody,
Just wanted to cover what happened at our meeting last Thursday.
  • We voted on the issue of dues. The proposal was for dues to be $15.00 per year due in January for each member. It was a unanimous vote between those who were there on Thursday and votes by email that I received prior to the meeting.
  • There will be a bank account opened for the club and a monthly report of the account will be made by the treasurer. The account will be set up so that two club officers will be required for access to the funds.  
  • We also voted on officers. The term for each office (President and Treasurer to start off with) is January thru December with elections to be held in December. Offices are to be held for only one year. Here are the inaugural officers for Central Missouri Scale Modelers:     

                  President……Colin Smialek 

                  Treasurer……Mike Duncan.

  • Also had a little discussion of TIGERCON 2011. The TIGERCON 2011 committee is planning on getting together for a meeting soon and will report back to the club on the progress.
  • For our demo, we watched an instructional DVD about painting, weathering and detailing an armor kit.  It was really kind of cool to see these details being performed by an expert. This DVD can be borrowed, just talk to Jack or Mike about using it.
  • For the next meeting, we will meet on January 13th 2011, 6:30 pm, at the Sunrise Optimist Club in Columbia.  Plan on bringing in a finished model, either one that you just finished or one that you built a long time ago, does not matter. We are going to go through a ‘mock’ model judging to see what the judges look for at a competition.  This will allow you to get a feel for what details are needed to do well at competitions.
Until then, want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Colin Smialek
