Slammers' Christmas Party 2014
Dec 2, 2014

Well, here are a bunch of us at the annual club Christmas dinner held at the NKC Community Center. It was a crisp cold winter night but a starry sky overhead. We had a little over 30 folks there and there was plenty of fun for all of us.
Not to mention... the food! (Ok - let's mention the food - because it was all great.) With the proceeds from the club's auction at the November Meeting, the club provided (for the second year) three huge trays of smoked meats - brisket, ham, and turkey - and BBQ beans from Jack Stack BBQ. In addition, the club bought all the plates and utensils and plenty of pop and bottled water. Everyone attending brought in salads, appetizers, chips, vegetable dishes, and desserts to fill out the buffet tables. Altogether, it was a great holiday meal for all attending. Dwayne B. provided some special fudge which we hope will become a holiday tradition for years to come !!!!
After we ate, the gift exchange took place. Again, this year we held the "Dirty Santa" event and only those that brought a gift for the fun exchange took part. We actually had one of the largest groups in recent years take part this year.
We had the room until 9, so we then had the chance to visit and share good times with others.
Special "Slammers' Thanks" go to Robert and Jerry for putting the whole affair together. It was a wonderful evening for everyone in attendance and Robert and Jerry did a lot of extra work to make it happen for all of us.

November 2011-Slammers Club Auction
Nov 1, 2011

The KC Slammers held their annual club auction on Tuesday, November 1, at the North KC Community Center. A lot of the crew was there and the money and the laughs flowed freely.

The proceeds from the annual sale go to help offset the costs of the club expenses for the Christmas Potluck dinner to be held in December. But, the main reason the club has it every year is that it's just so darned much fun to do!

Jerrald was our auctioneer again this year and was ably assisted by Orbie and Robert P. Zimm took the night off from his usual "assistant duties" this year but we'll look forward to his return in that job in 2012.

March 2011 Club Meeting
Mar 1, 2011

Leonard P. gave a great presentation on how to modify a Mustang kit to more correctly resemble the actual car. Although very similar to the real car, it's amazing to see the "liberties" a model car manufacturer takes in producing the scale model.

March, 2011, marked the beginning of what is hoped to become a long-term part of the club's monthly meetings. Proposed and sponsored by Slammer Ellis Kendrick, a "monthly theme contest" started out with 4 great entries by club members. The winner of the March, 2011, contest of "It ain't easy bein' green" was Robert P.
For his great model, Robert received a $5 gift certificate to Hobby Haven on Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park.

November 4,2014 Club Meeting
Nov 4, 2014

Here we are at our annual club auction. Each year the members of the club donate all kinds of goodies and we have an auction. The proceeds from the auction go toward the club's Family Christmas Dinner held on the December meeting date.
Despite the rather dour expressions on many of the faces here, you can be assured that everyone had lots of fun. This meeting is always one of the club's most anticipated of the year.

Slammer's Christmas Dinner 2011
Dec 6, 2011

On a clear and crispy December evening, the Slammers held yet another Annual Christams Potluck Dinner. It was held this year at the North Kansas City Community Center and attended by many members of the club. Spouses and friends were in attendance as well.

We had a very short business meeting, but the main reason for the December Meeting is for some serious eating and lots of good visiting and many laughs to go around. Our "Model Buildin' Pastor" - Leonard Poppe - said grace for the gang and then we descended on the buffet line to fill up our plates. The club provided the plates and dinnerware, bought the ice, pop, and water. All of the food was cooked and brought in by the members and families.

After we all ate, acting-Santa Zimm ran the White Elephant Gift Exchange for the Slammers that wished to participate (6 of us this year). Bill Helm got the prize of the night by selecting the first gift and in it was wrapped a genuine friction-powered rat. Oddly, in subsequent gift draws... NOBODY challenged Bill's claim on that special item. He went home smiling with his "rat rod" !

The winner of the monthly club theme build (and $5 cash) was Alyn Loya with his great '57 Chevy build for the theme "Red or Green - Ya Know What I Mean?"

What a great night it was for us all to just kick back and have a great time with our Slammer Family! Merry Christmas to all !

December, 2010 Club Meeting
Dec 7, 2010

Tonight was the annual club potluck Christmas Dinner. A few announcements were made here and there, but the main reason for this month's meeting was to eat a lot of great food and just enjoy each other's company. Several of the wives came to join the holiday party this month and we had a great turnout of members.

What a great club and what a great bunch of folks! Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays!

Mar 2, 2010

Tonight's meeting was centered around a pot-luck dinner in honor of Russ Johnson. Through the years, Russ has served the club in many capacities and has always done so with honor and loyalty to the KC Slammers. Thanks, Russ! We are all better men for having known you and shared out lives with you!

Another great meeting at North Kansas City Community Center!

Incoming President Jerry M. presented a nice plaque on behalf of the entire membership to outgoing President Bill Barker in recognition and appreciation of his three years of service to the club in that capacity.

December, 2009 Club Meeting
Dec 1, 2009

Our December Meeting each year is marked by our annual Christmas Dinner. Orbie did his special "smokin' thing" on a poor unsuspecting turkey and the members all brought goodies to eat as well. After a great dinner with lots of fine food and jokes all around, we settled down to a brief club meeting overseen by our president, Bill Barker.
This was Bill's last official meeting as Club President. He has served a term that lasted three very successful years.
The election for 2010 club officers was also held and the new officers are: President-Jerry M., Vice-President-Dan C., Treasurer-Robert P., and Secretary-Ellis K.
The monthly Model Roundtable was conducted and several of the members brought in some neat things to share with the group.
A new feature of the December meeting this year was a special "Dirty Santa Gift Exchange". It was a fun event and members were allowed to "steal" another member's mystery gift or keep their own. There lots of laughs and another such event is already on the books for December, 2010!

December 2, 2008 Club Meeting

It was the night for the annual Slammers Potluck Christmas Dinner as well as the election for the 2009 Officers. We all had a great meal and then went about club business.

A prospective member showed up to see what kind of bunch we are and had some great models to share with us all during our monthly "modeling roundtable".

David J., a long-distance member from Salina, KS, showed up for the fun and brought along some great modeling builds to show everyone!

Dan C. also brought a model built by his wife, Monica, a few years back.

The dinner and meeting lasted from 6:30 - 9:30PM.

August, 2007 Club Meeting

Sadly, this was Clyde's last meeting. Jeff completed the restoration of the Heartland Sign that Clyde had created many years ago and it was re-introduced at this meeting. It will be at all future Heartland Contests for the club.
We also had, instead of the club's annual outdoor picnic, a special pot-luck dinner at the clubhouse!
This was also the last meeting for the club held in Independence, MO.
