February Minutes and March Notice

Hello everyone:

Sorry for the delay in getting the minutes out. The executive has been very busy getting into their roles and discussing what is required to maintain the high level that has been standard in this club.

There will be many changes coming in the next short while so we ask that everyone keep a close eye on the club website News Reel as well as our Facebook page.

The February meeting was held in our temporary meeting hall at he Byron Branch Library. We had a great turnout and it was obvious that this venue would never work as a permanent location as we were jammed.

The display table was covered with fantastic models brought in by our membership. Pictures of some of models are already available on the Facebook site in an album and I will be adding a post in the webpage forum today that will make them available for non-Facebook members.

The membership was advised of the upcoming venue change that will find our meetings being held in the large hall at the Earl Nichols Recreation Centre. We reviewed the criteria that was used to pick the new venue (size, cost, parking, etc.)

We had a visitor whose father was a Spitfire pilot in WWII. He brought several items of his father’s including his aviator jacket and pictures of him wearing it in front of his plane. This was a hit with the members and it generated much discussion.

The March Meeting will again be held AT THE BYRON BRANCH LIBRARY IN THE LOWER FLOOR AUDITORIUM at 7PM on WEDNESDAY, March 15th. Parking is available at the rear off of Boler Road (this is the ONLY way to get into the parking lot). There is also limited parking on Commissioners Road at the front of the library and at the Metro lot on the corner of Boler and Commissioners Roads.

Theme: JUDGING PANEL – We will have a judging panel available so that members may bring their submissions for the upcoming contest season and have our expert judges provide hints and tips.

See you there!

Gerry – President
