Model build gathering happened this past Saturday. We didn’t quite reach 20 people, but all told, I believe we probably had 17 or 18 people at various times. Not as much alcohol was consumed as on the previous gathering, but the beers and shots did flow.
We only had one new comer this month. We’re two weeks out until OrangeCon 2008, so a few of the modelers were busy working on finishing their kits for the event.
Funaka brought over carne asada, and I fired up the grill. The pyro inside me almost emptied the entire bottle of lighter fluid on the grill… fire is fun.
I also baked a cheesecake since it has been a while since I treated the nerds to my wonderful dessert cooking abilities. I took the normal cheesecake recipe, reduced the sugar, swapped out half of the cream cheese with marscpone; and created a raspberry topping from fresh raspberries. Rock band was started up and the standard rules of lowest score drinks was applied. We took breaks from rockband to return to the build tables and get a few bits done.
