Message from the President
I hope everyone is taking advantage of the extra modeling time provided by social distancing. As we endure this pandemic, I feel it is prudent that we forgo the April meeting. I know we enjoy our monthly meeting, however, I think we can all agree it is not worth risking our wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around us. In the absence of our regular meeting, I would encourage all members to revisit our forum. This is a great way for us to stay engaged with each other and gain some behind the scenes insight on each other's techniques.
As a reminder, our contest, The Route 66 Model Expo, has been postponed. It is now scheduled for August 22nd. We also received word that the April 4th WestArk (Clarksville) and April 25th MossCon (Springfield) shows have been canceled. Bob is hoping the reschedule the WestArk show for August. Currently, there are no plans to reschedule MossCon.
I hope to see everyone soon. Stay safe and healthy.
Meetings start at 6:30pm on the first Tuesday of each month (unless there is a conflict with a holiday or special event) at HobbyTown USA, 6808 S Memorial, Suite 116, Tulsa OK.
Our next meeting is postponed until further notice.
Group Build: Corona Edition
Greetings Friends ,
Previously I mentioned using our forums to stay engaged with one another while we are on hiatus. Dave Horn came up with and even better idea, an online-focused group build.
This one is going to be a bit different than most group builds. There is no theme, you are free to build whatever you like. Dust off a kit from your stash and start building. Recently started a new build, that’s fine too! What we are looking for is regular online activity. Modelers will need to provide regular updates on their build, we are aiming for weekly updates, but that won’t be strictly enforced. To accommodate builders of different speeds we will have two rounds for this build. The first round will run through August 21st with the goal of announcing the winner at the contest on Aug 22nd. A second round will come to a close at the December meeting for those who didn’t make the first cut-off date.
Peter has set up a new tab on our forum to post your builds to. If you have not previously registered with the forum you will have to do so, Peter always gets the requests handled as quickly as possible.
Yes, there will be a prize for the winner of each round. Prizes will be of immeasurable value that you are sure to treasure for the rest of your life or more likely a gift card to a local hobby shop.
This group build is open to all of our friends even if you don’t make out meetings on the regular, the more the merrier!
Get to building and feel free to email with any questions you have.
