October 2018 Meeting

Our October 2018 meeting took place on the 19th at the Girl Scouts of America San Diego campus. We held our bi-annual contest, with results noted in the gallery below.

Our next meeting will be on Friday, November 30. We will elect club officers for 2019. We will also host our annual auction – please bring a model kit to auction for the club. Our auction pays for our annual pizza party in December.

September 2018 Meeting

Our September 2018 meeting was held on Friday, the 28th. We had no official show n’ tell, but two members brought models (as shown below in the pictures). A few items of note:

  1. OrangeCon 2018 will be held on Saturday, October 13 at Cal-State Fullerton –┬áPavilion at the University Conference Center, Cal State Fullerton University, 800 North State College Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92834. (State College & West Campus Dr.). Due to new requirements from the CSU system for outside vendors, it will use a token system, wherein attendees will trade dollars for tokens on a 1-to-1 basis, and may then use those tokens for purchases. Excess tokens may be turned back to cash at the end of the day. Credit-card purchases are still permitted.
  2. Top Gun II will begin filming soon and needs aircraft models for a bar scene. They will hang from the ceiling of the bar. Modelers who wish to build something for the movie should plan on finishing them by December and bringing them to the meeting that month. The models will not be returned to the modeler. Contact Bob Ekstrom at president@ipmssd.org for details.
  3. The next group build will be of an M1 Abrams. Bring an M1 Abrams kit, any scale and manufacturer, to the October meeting if you would like to participate. Rich Durham will be leading the group build.

The main portion of the meeting was taken up by our mini-auction. The club received a donation of kits which were auctioned off. The proceeds will supplement the proceeds from our regular auction which is scheduled for our November meeting.
