Sorry for not getting the Newsletter to our Members out there, Sometimes life gets in the way and prevents things from happening as we would like.
Staff members are just like you, they have jobs and families and they come first. This is just a hobby.
We have a personnel change for Chapter Contact, Robert Nunes has stepped up and taken over the duties as Chapter Contact for the next year. I thank Robert for helping us out in our time of need.
Our Regional Contest planning is continuing forward. Ernie Gee has designed an award medallion for the contest and some logistic sources have been identified such as chairs and tables. I want to assure you we are on track. Staff has been attending contest in the Southern Cal region spreading the good news, pressing the flesh, making good contacts. We just started updating our Chapter Website, please check it out and give back some feedback. We will continue to do this so our Regional Contest will be a sound success. As we get closer to crunch time we will be asking membership to help out as needed to be ready.
Christmas Party and Annual Membership Renewal drive. Please make an effort to attend this years party, Father Dom will be taking attendance as usual and will also be accepting chapter due renewals for 2012.
Our 3rd and final 2011 In House Model Contest, December 15th, 2011, so bring in your finished gems and be judged by your Peers. Make sure you update your point cards at that meeting. The Member with the most points will be awarded the Chapter TopGun award plus gift Certificate at H-town. This will be given out at the January meeting.
