Thank you to all that came out to Winterfest. There were some great models. We are looking forward to seeing the all the great models next year. Our theme for next year is the “Cold War”. We will post pictures soon.
Dads (and moms) get together with the kids, we are looking at having a new Juniors category.
I just set up a way to order new t-shirts for anyone interested. There are several colors and sizes available. I didn’t use the Hanes because they didn’t fit well. You can order and pay on-line until Feb 15th. I will bring the shirts to the March meeting.
I will work on sweatshirts if anyone is interested but they will be around $45 to $50. Just let me know.

Hello Fellow Modelers!
This email is to inform the group of a change of location for our monthly group meetings and the shift in meeting day this month. We will now be meeting at:
“At Ease Games”
8990 Miramar Rd #140
San Diego, CA 92126
Although Game Empire has been good to us, we really wanted a location that would allow us to bring food into the meetings and better foster an environment for building models. We feel we have found that at this new location. “At Ease Games” provides an open food policy, a larger and nicer location, and a building room in the back.
Also, due to Mothers Day falling on our standard meeting day (May 11th), we have elected to move the regular meeting this month to Sunday, May 18. However, a few folks are still planning on showing up to the new meeting location on the 11th for an informal get together – so feel free to come by and hang out. The standard second Sunday meeting date will resume next month on June 14th.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
