New Website Features

Recently the club website was updated with several new features.

Clubs: a page with links to hobbyist groups in the region. You may be surprised by the number of modelling clubs outside IPMS in the area as well as those related to the model railroading and R/C.

Events: a calendar listing IPMS London and AMPS-SWO meetings as well as contests in the region. This will be updated when we learn more about the 2018 show schedule.

Members’ Sites: a page with links to personal/business sites sponsored by our members. Please let us know if you have a site you want to share.

Shops: a page with links to hobby shops and other resources in Southern Ontario. Are your favourites listed?

Related Sites: we added links to our ‘sister’ clubs – AMPS-SWO, Sarnia Auto Modellers, and Windsor Modellers.

We’d appreciate your help in maintaining these pages. If you know of any missing or broken links please contact us at ipmslondonexec@gmail.com

June Meeting & July Notice

Hello everyone,

The June Meeting was a huge success. We had several new members as well as a few guests. The regular meeting content was foreshortened to ensure that our guest presenter had sufficient time to complete his demo.

 

For the content section of the meeting, we were extremely fortunate to have Master Model Builder Dave Browne give a clinic on “Chipping” and “Hairspray Weathering”. The Demo was a great success and enjoyed by everyone! Huge thanks to Dave for taking the time to visit our club and provide such informative content. Members, please don’t forget to check out http://www.hornethobbies.com and stay tuned for more exciting club events!

The JULY Meeting will be at 7 pm, Wednesday, July 12th at Earl Nichols Recreation Centre Meeting Hall. The venue is located at 799 Homeview Road in London.

PROGRAM CONTENT: Julys’ program will be a presentation by Flex-I-File (http://www.flex-i-file.com) tools and techniques in the modelling world. They will be bringing a small sampling of their products for sale so don’t forget to bring a little extra cash.

Hope to see you there!

Gerry – President
