August Meeting Minutes

Meeting convened at The Deep, with 15 attending

Old Business:
Tom Clark has finished the trophy artwork and will be sending it to NuImage for printing. The price will be the same as last year.
Vendors: As of the meeting, 9 tables had been sold. Dave Lanteigne and Scott Jeffries will be handing off duties when Dave goes on a trip before the show.
Tom will do inventory before next meeting, but he knows we need a new roll of table covering.

New Business:
Nationals report by the attendees:
Andy Brezinski got a 3rd place for his Indy pace car.

2700 models entered overall.

Phil Cassibry had a Meteor F.8 with resin aftermarket intakes, with plans to do it in Korean War colors.

Skip Hassler - Had LED lights  he bought for his Optivisor: Because new tools are almost as good as models.

Tom Clark had an SF3D kit he's been working on, and photos of his father's gas station, circa 1948.
