Happy New Years Fellow Modelers!  Welcome to 2015!

Just a reminder that our regular monthly meeting is this coming Thursday evening, January 15th at 6:30 pm at the Sunrise Optimist club.

The basic agenda will be as follows:

-- Treasurer's report and club dues (for those who might have forgot...it's $15/year)
-- New club business and open forum
-- Progress on quarterly model build: Corvettes (the cars...not the boats)
-- How-To Demo Time:  Sharpie Painting

I appreciate all the help and support so many of your have given since our last meeting when I was railroaded...eh,... I mean blessed with the opportunity to serve as president for 2015.

So this email is also my first "request".  Please consider the following and come to the meeting with any ideas/specifics you might have.

One of the great things about this club is the willingness to go forth and proclaim the joys of modeling to the community by being part of local events.  Jim's efforts to connect with the Corvette Club is an excellent example.  There are many other's like the meeting each year around airshow time that honors the Tuskegee airmen.

Just as we all have different interest and focus in our choice of modeling subjects, most of us have contact with a variety of outside groups (such as those named).  Last year Pablo identified an excellent potential opportunity to connect, that I hope we can pull off in 2015.  My request to each of you is this.  Think of the outside groups you associate with.  Try to envision which might offer a good opportunity for us to spread the good word (if not actual glue) about scale modeling. Especially any groups that allow us to make connections with kids. 

That's it for now.  Come to the meeting and enjoy the fun, fellowship, and always the learning experiences that happen along the way.

Lets have a GREAT 2015....and remember HAVE FUN!
