The Armorgator chapter met on March 16 at John’s Models. Six chapter members were present. Thanks are extended to all, who paid their annual dues into the treasury. With the chapter flush with a whopping $60, it was decided to sponsor a “Best of Show Award” in the armor category for the upcoming Pensacola IPMS “Modeleer” contest to be held May 4. In addition, it was decided to sponsor a vendor table at the contest in an effort to broaden the membership base of the chapter and establish a broader “footprint.”
Members in attendance were reminded that the Modeleers will need help in setting up their contest in May. In addition, anyone who could help manning the Armorgator table would be appreciated. Members were also asked to contribute any kits or hobby materials for potential sale/raffle at the contest.
A seminar was presented on weathering/fading with oils and several models were presented for review and discussion during the “Parade Ground” portion of the meeting. The meeting ended with John discussing new kits and products he has received at the shop since the last meeting.
The next meeting was scheduled for April 20.
