We had a record 37 people attending the meeting this month, with 11 of them entering a total of 30 models in our quarterly contest. Vince Barrale conducted a small clinic on judging for those that were interested in learning what to look for in contest builds.
…and the gaps were this wide!
Speaking of contests, ModelMania is only a week away. If you want to help, doors open for setup at 6am, breakfast food and coffee should be available after 7:30, and we will be completely cleaned up by 7pm. If you want to attend, all the info is on the ModelMania page.
May will be our annual elections, so if you want to be considered for one of our offices, please let Boyd Waechter, our secretary, know in advance so proper ballots can be made up.

Below are the raffle prizes for this year’s ModelMania. These are the more expensive tickets, not the door prize tickets.
All of the forms are available on the contest page, or in this earlier post.
I won’t repeat all of the latest email – but don’t make any other plans for Saturday, April 25. The raffle/door prize table has over $1300 in prizes – photos coming soon!
Until then, here are the forms:
