April 2015 Meeting

The April meeting was a recap of all things MosquitoCon, with wings, pizza and beer provided by the club. Little business was discussed, yet it was revealed that a deal has been reached on the meeting place, and for the foreseeable future the club will continue to meet at the Knights of Columbus hall on the second Friday of every month.

Model turnout was light, as it often is after a MosquitoCon, but the models on display were top notch, as usual.
