Updates and Schedule

Just a few semi-random items.

A new article by Rick Cotton with Veteran’s Day as the subject is on the Articles page.

Links to David Qu’s photos from Wings Over Houston 2014 and some of his modeling work have been added to the Galleries (in the Member’s Galleries area near the bottom). Both the modeling and the photography are outstanding.

Here’s a tentative schedule of the topics for the next year’s meetings:

January 13th – 1Q15 Contest
February 10th – Painting wood grain finishes by Corbett Legg
March 10th – Discussion of Modelmania, responsibilities, awards, etc.
April 14th – 2Q15 Contest, finalize Modelmania issues

July 14th – 3Q15 Contest
August 11th – Open
September 8th – Open

One of the Open meetings may become a demonstration of rust techniques from Vince Barrale.

November 2014 Meeting Recap

Boyd’s email for those of you who missed it, with only a little editing:

To Club Members;

For a meeting night that did not include a scheduled program or demonstration, last night saw 23 people in attendance and was quite active.  Vince Barrale gave a brief overview of the World War II Memorial Museum in New Orleans that he recently visited, and Paul Sacco updated everyone on his trip to GatorCon in Lafayette.  Despite changing the venue at the last minute, Paul said they had a good turn-out and it was a good show.  The three Houston club members who attended won a total of 29 awards plus Best Ship and Best of Show by Rick Cotton.  Congratulations to everyone.

October 2014 Meeting Recap (revised)

Seventeen members slogged through traffic for last night’s meeting, where we heard reports from the recent Fort Worth (held in Arlington) and Austin shows (club members took home some 16 awards from Arlington and 36 from Austin) and the build day at HobbyTown.

GatorCon in Lafayette is coming up on 1 November. Unfortunately, that’s all I know about it at this time.
