ACME is in the same shopping area as Ollie’s across from McDonald’s fast food. Suggested entrance is on the North side (facing Main Street) doorways. Veer left as you enter the store and proceed to the back where you will see a glass sided meeting room. The store Manager and security is aware that we will be carrying in boxes/containers of our models. Meetings start at are usual time of 6:30 PM.

There is a non-theme contest every month, whether or not a theme contest is planned. So bring whatever you’ve got and let’s fill up those tables!
If you would like to present a demo, or if you have a demo subject you would like to see presented, talk to one of the officers at the meeting. Odds are, many of the rest of us would be interested, also!
Our web site needs content! Send your photos and other items of interest to John Shimek: firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the site at www.famecities.com . Our website will be undergoing a face-lift and revamp later this month. Stay tuned for more info soon.
