Brianna Childres was awarded the 2014 Member of the Year award. Brianna has been involved in many behind-the-scene activities that are supportive of the club. As the Contest Coordinator she coordinated the Contest Committee and keeps contest preparation going along a timeline, developed the on-line registration system, scouted out new venues, and ordered medals as well as kept track of a large number of other details related to the contest. As the Web page designer and social media coordinator she designed and keeps running the club website and facebook. On the E-Board she is prone to stretching the role of the club in the community and is supportive of young modelers, young adults, and cancer awareness as well as keeping the CASM name in the presence of social media. For every club meeting she operates the live streaming of the club meetings and communicates with participants on the web. Brianna has been a source of information to other clubs and contest coordinators on how to use social media and how set up streamlined contests. Brianna has prepared presentations for the different IPMS awards that are presented each year which resulted in CASM achieving honors as Region 6 Chapter of the Year three times and IPMS Chapter of the Year.
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.
