April 2016 Meeting

We had a great meeting on Friday, April 29. We held our bi-annual contest with lots of great entries. See below for the full list and results.

The annual San Diego Model Expo is less than two months away, on June 4 at Gillespie Field. Please consider doing one or more of the following to help make this event a success:

  1. Donate a kit for the raffle. It does not have to be shrink-wrapped, but it should be new and complete.
  2. Sponsor a category – for only $25 your name will go down in San Diego modelling history!
  3. Judge – Volunteer to help judge a contest category. You will be paired with other judges. No experience is necessary. You can still judge if you have entered a model; you just cannot judge a category in which you have an entry. As noted by Bob Ekstrom, our Second Vice-President, if you will be judging, it is helpful to bring a small flashlight. Contact our Lead Judge, Jerry Jackson if interested.
  4. Photograph a category – We are looking for people to help us photograph models at the Expo. If interested, please contact Ethan Idenmill for details.
