Our Annual Year’s best Judges Choice and Theme Award Models will be on display at our January 20, 2017 meeting. Each year at the first meeting of the year, Judges Choice and Theme Award winners from the previous year display their award winning models. Club members will then vote on which one is the Best of Judges Choice and the Best of Theme Award. The names of these Year’s best models will then be engraved on our club plaque – forever enshrined in our club modeling history!
