immediately, Meteor Productions, Inc., will donate one $25.00 gift certificate
per year to each chartered IPMS/USA chapter, to be used as a reward for the
chapter member who has done the most for the chapter that year.
announced at the awards banquet by IPMS/USA president Jack Kennedy at the IPMS/USA
national convention in Kansas City, as each chapter renews its charter this
year, IPMS/USA will notify Meteor, who will in turn send a certificate directly
to the local chapter.
president Dave Klaus said in his letter proposing the program to the IPMS/USA
Executive Board members:
is a great organization. The club
has done a huge amount of good for the entire scale modeling community over the
last 40+ years, and has successfully kept the flame alive through some of the
tough times in the hobby.
PEOPLE make IPMS/USA what it is. It’s
the hundreds of folks who put in the countless—unpaid!—hours who give IPMS
it’s heart and who make good things happen for the rest of us.
a small way of saying “thank you” to those who give IPMS its heart,
effective immediately, we are donating one $25.00 gift certificate directly
to each chartered IPMS/USA chapter each year.
hope each chapter’s leadership will use it as a valuable reward for a
deserving chapter member who has done the greatest good for the chapter that
year. Everybody appreciates the
thanks they receive, but nothing beats cold, hard cash!
gift certificate is good for any products Meteor sells, including sales
merchandise, which could further increase its value. We put no restrictions on the use of this gift.
gift certificate program is intended to reward individual IPMS/USA members for
helping their local club. Each club
will decide for itself how to award its gift certificate and Meteor is not
involved with this local decision.
the request of the IPMS/USA national leadership, Meteor will send each gift
certificate only after receiving notification from the IPMS/USA E-Board that the
local chapter has renewed its charter for 2007.
IPMS/USA will, as usual, notify its chapters of the details for charter
Meteor may expand this program to IPMS organizations outside the US in the future, but no firm decision on this has yet been made.
