After about a year long hiatus, local ship modelers in the greater SF Bay and Sacramento areas will once again be getting together at the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum. The date for the gathering is Saturday, May 11th, at 10am.
This group was meeting fairly regularly, about 4 times a year, but with other life issues getting in the way, not much in the way of ship modeling was being accomplished by the bulk of attendees. But, it’s been long enough now that there’s been some interest in getting together again. People have had some time away and, hopefully, have had a chance to either work on a project or they’re ready to get back to one and need some inspiration.
I really like the idea of ship modeling clubs myself, but not as a form of simple entertainment. I really want them to be times to share and learn and to find out what people are working on.
Even if one has no model progress to show, maybe a model is too difficult to transport or nothing has been done since the last time it was brought, one can share by taking part in discussion, or by simply bringing a small assembly, book or tool – maybe an unstarted kit, even.
The Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum is a nice little museum located near downtown Vallejo at 41 Marin Avenue. You can find out more about the museum at http://vallejomuseum.net. Ω
