Squadron’s big Eaglequest event has wrapped up, and while you could read about it on the official website, I think you’ll find Rick Cotton’s three-part series much more entertaining. Find it on the Articles page.
Upcoming events – Build day at HobbyTown on July 11, monthly meeting and quarterly contest on July 14, IPMS nationals (Columbus, OH) beginning July 22.

We are having a build day at HobbyTown on Hwy 6 (just north of Westheimer) on Saturday, 11 July from 11am until 4pm. (There is an officer’s meeting at 10am, so you don’t want to get there too early or you might be volunteered for something.
Here’s Boyd’s recap of June’s meeting:
To Club Members;
We had a good group of 26 attendees at last night’s meeting. Vince Barrale, new El Presidente, first covered a series of upgrades and changes that will be made to improve the club meetings over the next several months. In summary, these include;
– More emphasis on modeling, “Model Talk” (formerly called Show N Tell), and demostrations.
– Minimize the business portion of the meetings
While the weather may have scared off most of our members, a few made the trek to the Metroplex for this year’s Scalefest. Check out Rick Cotton’s report here, or on the Articles page.
Some of those that weren’t on the road north last Saturday spent some time setting up our annual display at the Houston Public Library downtown. This year we got all four display cases, with nice acrylic stands, and printed ID cards. We’ll have photos soon, but you can see the displays in person through August or September.
Speaking of photos, all of the photos from Modelmania are on the Galleries page.
