Our next meeting is Tuesday, 11 Mar at the Tracy Gee Community Center. The meeting starts at 7pm and ends just before 9pm.
This month Don, the manager for our new HobbyTown on Hwy 6, will be talking about his plans for the store and getting feedback for what we’d like to see. I’m told there will be drawings for gift cards.
I expect we will also be discussing Modelmania (only seven weeks away!), our Houston Public Library display, and our table at Comicpalooza. There should be a report from the recent ModelFiesta in San Antonio as well.
As we’ve done for the past couple of years, IPMS-Houston will be manning a table at Comicpalooza on 23-26 May in the George R Brown Convention Center. Vince Barrale will give a presentation on SF and fantasy modeling. Sit at the table, work on some kits, answer a few questions, and watch the scenery go by. (Last yera we were next to the Daleks.) The convention website is here if you want more info. Contact Vince at a meeting or via email to volunteer.
Several of our club members entered the Alamo Squadron’s ModelFiesta in San Antonio last Saturday. There seemed to be a large number of figure entries, and I only recall one empty category.

Late, but here’s Boyd’s email in case you missed it:

A big thanks to Michael for coming to the meeting and Continue reading

This Saturday (15 Feb) is ModelFiesta 33 presented by IPMS Alamo Squadron in a NEW Location – The San Antonio Event Center, 8111 Meadow Leaf Dr, San Antonio.
Their theme this year is Critters. If your model has a non human creature in it, on it, or named for it, then your model will fit in the theme. For more information see their website. http://www.alamosquadron.com/
