Our annual Christmas party/December meeting is this Tuesday, the 10th. Regular time and place – 7pm at the Tracy Gee Community Center, near Richmond and Beltway 8.
The club will be providing some kind of party tray as a main course, but members are encouraged to bring drinks, utensils, plates, and any additional food you might want to share with the rest of us. Oh, ice would be useful too, unless you like your Dr Pepper warm.
No gift exchange or contest at this meeting, although we plan to have slides from the big Telford (UK) show, and you’re encouraged to bring your latest projects and acquisitions so we can drool all over them.
From Boyd Waechter:
Before you jump into your car and head out to visit the new HobbyTown USA on Highway 6 to get away from the visiting relatives, I need to pass along to everyone that their grand opening has been delayed by about 2 weeks. They WILL NOT be open on November 29th as originally planned. This delay is due to the contractor putting in the walls and flooring getting behind on his construction schedule. I am sure HT employee David Brizzard will have an update for us at the December 9th meeting on specifically when they will be open for business.
Well, guess I’ll stay home Friday and build instead of going shopping.
Just a quick note – our charter with IPMS-USA has been renewed, so we’re official for 2014. The Tracy Gee center has confirmed our meeting date and time for 2014 as well. Thanks to Boyd Waechter for taking care of this so the rest of us can concentrate on building!
A busy meeting.
The new HobbyTown at Westheimer and Highway 6 is having a soft opening on 28 November. (That’s Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.) The official opening date is Saturday 14 December. Hours will be Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sun 12-5pm. Member David Brizzard is running the plastic and book departments. The owner is said to be committed to the local modeling community, which should be good news for us, and has said he’ll buy a couple of tables for ModelMania 2014.
Tuesday, 12 November is this month’s meeting at 7pm at the usual place. Rick Cotton will give a demonstration of how he replicates wood decks. The new HobbyTown on Hwy 6 is scheduled to open on the 29th; come get all the latest news.
