Covid 19 impact on Monthly Meetings
Due to the impact and restrictions of the current pandemic situation, NCMSS is now conducting its meetings virtually through the Zoom Web Conferencing Platform. This is a very user friendly platform that many others have been using as well. These meetings have been scheduled at the same time as our past meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month starting at 7:30 pm.
A “Virtual Parade Ground” of member’s current projects similar to our in-person meetings is a part of the agenda. Please E Mail the NCMSS Adjutant David Hoffman at email@example.com for link information or to submit your images for the Parade Ground
Notifications and a link for the meeting are sent via e mail to our friends and members.
In person meetings will resume on October 27 at Thomas Jefferson H.S
5801 Franconia Road
Alexandria, VA 22310

About Our Meetings
After a short business meeting, club members present their latest efforts, recent purchases, and/or other items of interest on the "Parade Ground" table. Presentations may be a verbal report on a show they attended, a piece of military gear, or a figure that is somewhere between "just got it" and "just finished". They informally tell the rest of the club about their project. Sometimes this starts lively discussions that continue during the remainder of our meeting. If you want to learn more about historical miniatures, there couldn't be a better place than the NCMSS free-for-all discussions that enhance our meetings. The club's motto is "To Honor History Through Art" and that's second nature to our members. It's just amazing how much history they know. Quarterly, the meeting hosts a flea market at which members can sell or trade items from their collections.
But it is not just historical miniatures that appear on the "Parade Ground" table. Several of our members are keenly interested in Fantasy and Science Fiction, as well, and there are quite a number of unusual and fantastic figures from these genres. Size is no barrier either, as we also enjoy showing traditional gaming table size (25-32mm) as well as 200mm full figures and large
