Reminder - 2020 Contest Has Been Canceled

As a reminder, the 2020 contest has been canceled due to the uncertainty over the regulations covering large meetings and the availability of the planned venue. We appreciate all the support we have received in the past from our fellow modelers, and hope to see you next year.

All Meetings Suspended Until Further Notice


March Meeting Minutes

The March 2020 of the HPMS was called to order at 7:02 P.M. on 2 March, 2020.  There were 13 attendees.  The minutes of the February 2020 were read and approved.

Old Business

The discussion as to a new meeting venue continued.  Recent E-mails have indicated that a serious look has been done at Huntsville Public Library.  The location is good but they require a $50.00 deposit that is paid before each use of the meeting room and would be returned after the use of the room.  One of the members of the chapter stated he would continue to pursue the Hobby Lobby in Madison.  There was motion brought forward to 'table' this discussion and this was agreed to.

An organization has been designated for remaining portion of our yearly Christmas donation.  The organization is the 'Models for Troops'.

The location for the chapter's 2020 model show and contest has been made.  The subject flyers was brought up, it was determined that flyers need to be ready to take to the Anniston show that is happening towards the end of the month.  As this is a new location for the show, a map will have to be part of the flyer.  The structure of the show will be the same as last year.  There was suggestion that the status of the rules be checked and updated should there be a need for such action.

New Business
