December Meeting; Christmas party and Branch Championship.

 Karl Robinson receiving the Jaguar Trophy 2011.

The club's December meeting will be on Sunday 16th and as in previous years there will be the Christmas  Party when we welcome family members to share in the festivities with club members contributing food for a buffet. The meeting is largely an informal affair although we do have the presentation of trophies - this year we have a new set to replace the ageing ones that have long since seen their best days.The Branch Champion is voted for by the members from the winning entries of the monthly competitions.

Terry Walton has prepared a quiz for anyone attending the party to participate in (Except those us who have had prior sight of it and would have an unfair advantage) - there are no prizes it's just for fun.

A regular feature of the Christmas meeting is the Hospice Trophy Draw, members contribute unwanted kits from their collection, gift-wrapped, which then go into as sack and are drawn out on a lucky dip basis with a payment of £3 per kit. The kit should then be built by the February meeting using only the contents of the box/package plus glue and paint (No after-market add-ons or decals allowed). If it isn't finished by the February meeting then an additional £2 is payable with all the proceeds going to the Acorns Children's Hospice.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our fellow IPMS (UK) and international branches and their members, with special greeting's to our friends at IPMS Syracuse.
