Last night we voted to buy a 12' Telemaster and build it together over the winter. This will be a great way to introduce some of our members to building, as well as ensuring a good turn-out to club meetings. It will also be a great club tool, capable of towing banners, candy drops, etc. Except for the kit, everything else will be donated from the excess "stuff" we all have laying around unused.
We are also having a One Design category for our annual Builders Contest in the May. We're building Comet Sparky's, many from the Bob Holman laser short-kit.
I'm looking forward to lots of balsa dust in my shop and garage this winter!
Edit: I will also have a build thread somewhere to inspire other clubs and builders.
