Starting 2016

Meeting at the new location: Members discuss their current projects and their thoughts on kits. We currently meet in one of the classrooms at the Renaissance Academy charter school in Lehi, Utah.

It's the new year, and so there's no excuse: The Blog must go on! 
Our little group now has about a dozen members, with anywhere from six to a dozen showing up on meeting night, which is now the third Wednesday of the month starting at 7 pm. Thanks to the kindness of leadership at the Renaissance Academy and the Space Education Center under construction there, we have a classroom we can meet in that has good lighting and lots of room for our group to display their kits and projects and engage in friendly discussion. In return, we are planning to start a Jr Modelbuilder club for the kids in the school, so we can teach some modeling skills and maybe prime the pump for future membership!
