Today is the day to pay tribute and salute our veterans. As modelers, we spend many hours reproducing the machines of war in our aircraft, armor, and ship models. Less often do we stop to salute the men and women of the armed forces for their dedication and sacrifice to defend our country. As parents and grandparents we hold our breath and hope that we see our children return from carrying out their duty. Sometimes we join arms with one another when there is a loss of someone precious to us. We salute those veterans and current active service soldiers who are members of our club. We stand in silent prayer to our members who have lost loved ones in our current battle against terrorism. We pray for a protective hedge of thorns to protect our club members in current active duty. Thank-you veterans for putting your lives on the line and serving our country so we can have the freedom to enjoy our families and sit around a table together to talk about models, techniques, and enjoy friendships. Too often do we lose sight of your sacrifices while we enjoy our time together. We salute you.
The Scratching Post
The Scratching Post is the newsletter for the Central Arkansas Scale Modelers, the Black Cats, and is written by modelers to promote and expand the modeling hobby. Our goal is to develop an e-zine in which modeling activities in the central Arkansas area are shared but, also, topics germane to the modeling hobby are discussed. We have selected a blog format so that the publication is interactive and can be accessed daily. We desire contributions from modelers all over the world so we can cover topics that are often not covered in other publications. Most of all, we would like the blog to be informative and fun! Please post comments and submit articles for our publication.
