The purpose of NAME Day is to unite and involve all NAME members by doing the same project on the same day at different locations throughout the US and internationally. Participation in an event may occur in clubs, locally, statewide, regionally, or online.
NAME Day will take place on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Expanded events (or areas with conflicting dates) should occur as close to this date as is reasonably possible. Please check with the local coordinators to make sure that the event is still happening during the pandemic.
Project: All events will center on the same project – “The Tiki Bar.” Plans for the project will be provided in 1”, 1⁄2” and 1⁄4” scale as soon as they are available. Some cutters may produce kits for 1/144” scale. Perhaps you would want it on a beachfront? Maybe in the backyard by the pool? How about a Tiki Bar ambience at a ball game or county fair? Maybe just a scene on it’s own? You can serve cold drinks using the cooler that is a part of the project for storing ice, store your glasses, bottles, whatever on the shelves, put some nice bar stools in front to sit on and relax. You might want to do some landscaping around the bar, include some little tables and chairs around a patio. So many options and this will be a complete project this year. Only for 2021. No further projects to wait a whole year for.
One 1″ free kit will be available for groups who register their events with the NAME Day Committee but they will not be shipped out until mid-April, 2021. Cutter lists will be posted in April also.
Cutters will have accessory kits for sale so you will have to check their websites and offerings.
Contact Barbara Thornton-Hill to register your event. Still not meeting in person at facilities? How about a Zoom Event? Several groups found those to be satisfactory in 2020. You can have the fun of sharing with others and also the privacy of assembly in your own workspace.
More information about NAME Day in the N2 Region will be posted as it becomes available.
