September 2014 meeting recap

Here’s a meeting recap from Rick Cotton’s email. Photos are at the bottom:

Library Display Wrap-up

If you didn’t get a chance to see our display at the Houston Public Library downtown, here are some photos and a summary from Vince Barrale (hiy the link for the photos):

Well another summer  of models at the library has passed. I want to thank all who participated in the event this year. The library folks did a great job of enhancing our models with signs, posters and books, especially for the WWI display case.

Next year I would like to plan more in advance, make a list of what you are going to bring, coordinate the shelf space, categorize and have place cards for each model. The library will help with that. I will start this up again in January.

I have tried to update all of next year’s shows with the dates and themes. If I have missed your show or have incorrect data, please let me know so I can correct it.

This news may be more useful for our GBASMA neighbors, but the Harris County Freeman Branch Library in Clear Lake City will be offering 3-D printing services. More info is here.

(I remember riding my bicycle to that library when it was housed in a corrugated metal building.)
