Monthly Meeting – January 2020

The January meeting was jam-packed with members and models, getting us off to a great start in 2020!  We had over 30 members, and there were 20 models on the table.

As well as the usual business, we discussed the upcoming CAN-AM Challenge for 2020, and how it may affect the Christmas Party raffle.

Jerry suggested that the club officers keep the group “Best of” awards, and display them at events, instead of having the winner keep it on loan for they year.

Alex offered to take suggestions for demos for the year.  No one had any immediate suggestions.

And we discussed the upcoming shows, including 4M Mayhem, and Warren’s SEMMEX.

(The rumor is that Kris brought cupcakes in that box, but he didn’t share.)

 

Eventually, we got to the highlight of the evening, January’s Model of the Month contest.  Our winner was Steve Freeman‘s ISAF RG-31.  Check out the pics below, and see Steve’s write-up here.  Well done, Steve!
