News About The Nautical Research Guild
April 2013 NRG NEWS
During the recent Annual Directors & Officers meeting the Board held their annual election of Chairman from among the Directors. The NRG By-Laws require the Board to annually elect a Chairman. Lloyd Warner was elected to serve as Chairman for the 2013-2014 term.
The Board thanks Dan Pariser for taking the helm for the 2012-2013 term and overseeing some needed changes to improve the Guild. The use of this email system instituted by Dan will continue to be used to keep the membership aware of any new programs or developments to help revitalize the Guild.
The Board plans to continue with all of the changes that were made over the last year. We will also follow through and implement the changes that have been planned for this year as well and to continue to move forward to provide more information and learning opportunities to the membership.
We also regret to inform you that Dan Pariser has elected not to continue as a Director and has tendered his resignation.
Per the By-Laws the Board has appointed Ryland Craze to serve out the rest of Dan's term and stand for election this Fall. Join us in welcoming Ryland as a director. Ryland is from Virginia and recently completed his term as President of the Hampton Rhodes Ship Model Society.

Everybody should have received their first 80 page issue of the Journal. The Journal was expanded from 64 pages to 80 pages with the Spring 2013 issue providing the membership with an additional 64 pages of information each year. This is like getting an additional issue each year. The new pages will allow us to provide more modeling related articles, shop notes and member's models in each issue. Please consider sending in some good clear photographs of your work and maybe an article on some aspect of your model building. Our Editorial Guidelines on the web site under THE JOURNAL explain how to submit articles. Editor Paul Fontenoy will work with you to make it a mostly painless process. You can also use the Photo submission form on our gallery page.
PHOTOGRAPHIC SHIP MODEL COMPETITION
Mitch Michelson reports that entries for the photo competition are coming in but are, to this point, very slow. We are hoping that this year's showing will surpass the first event. At the request of prior entrants the judge's critique to the modelers will be expanded to assist the modeler with more constructive hints and ways to improve their skills. So, break out your cameras, take some great photos, and submit in your entries. For more information visit the website page for the details.
