It’s come and gone- the first ever AMA Expo East RC show which replaced the venerable W.R.A.M. presentation of over 48 years went off without any major hitches. There were some hiccups (biggest one in my opinion: all of Horizon Hobbies show materials being inexplicably sent back to Chicago 24 hours before the show began) and there are points to be addressed for 2018 (see Social Media going forward) but overall as of this early view (24 hours after) there were many more plusses than minuses. And one BIG plus was our booth; or should I say, the Volunteers that manned it! Many, many thanks go out to Dave Londin, Ed Mulligan, Bob Bennett, Al Reinhardt, Marty Bluver, Rois Bari, Pete Daba and Carole & Erik Irbe. All of you did a splendid job of staffing AND selling a ton of tickets- which at this point (final count due in the next day or so) appears to have brought in an excellent profit for the club’s coffers. More on this as the final I’s are dotted and T’s crossed. If you see any of the individuals above in your travels make sure to thank them profusely for their generous contribution of time and energy to help the club. Way to go, all you guys!
February is coming to an end VERY soon. You have until the end of the month to renew for 2017 without incurring the $25 Initiation Fee on top of regular dues. If you’re mailing it in make sure it’s postmarked no later than February 28th.
