2012 IPMS/USA Region 5 Website of the Year        2011 and 2013 IPMS/USA Region 5 Chapter of the Year

IPMS Fort Crook is a club consisting of scale modelers who get together once a month to trade ideas and just have fun. We meet at 6:30 P.M. on the THIRD Wednesday of each month at the NRD Headquarters located at 154th and Giles Road.

During our monthly meetings, we talk about the latest new kit and after-market releases, and usually have informal modeling seminars to help everyone hone their modeling skills.  Sometimes, the meeting will feature a special guest speaker and almost every month features a modeling contest or theme night. 

Our membership runs the full gambit of modeling. We have aircraft, armor, ship, auto, sci-fi, and figure modelers with skill levels from the beginner to the expert and all levels in between. Most of all, we are a group of modelers who get together each month to talk modeling and most of all just have fun. Membership in IPMS/USA is encouraged, but not required.

 

October Message from the President by Don Joy

Posted: October 15th, 2017

Prez Sez – October

 

Our next meeting is 6:30PM, Wednesday, Oct 18th, at the National Resource District, 156th and Giles. 168th remains closed north of Giles, so keep that in mind.

No context this month because of the Annual Auction. For those new to the auction, it goes like this:

1)     You are allowed to bring 5 “Lots”. A Lot is one or more items intended to be bid on as a single item

2)     Clearly mark your name and the starting bid on each lot

3)     Bidding starts at the indicated amount. If there are no opening bids, you will be asked whether you want to lower the bid or withdraw the item.

4)     Bids run in $.50 increments to $10.00, then in $1.00 increments

5)     10% of sales goes to the club

6)     I keep a running table of sales and purchases and we settle up at the end.

 

We will have nomination of officers for 2018. Our current officers are:

President: Don

Vice President: Jay

Secretary for life: Bill

Treasurer: Brian Smith

Contest Director (Volunteer): Anne

For my part, I am not running for re-election. If you are interested in a position, please self-nominate yourself. We often end up with only 1 person nominated for each position, so this can become a matter of acclamation.

Nominations for Member of the Year: This is the person in the club we think has done the most to advance the club and the hobby over the last year.
