At the May 2018 meeting, Tom presented important statistics on World War II P-51 Mustangs & Aces. Craig made a motion that the 2019 club medals depict a P-51 Mustang, which was accepted.

July update: Tony has ordered 2019 BECC Medals, featuring a ďkillerĒ P-51 mustang. 200 silver, 100 bronze, 100 pewter and 25 copper.

September update: The 2019 medals are due to ship from the mint. Once the package contents have been confirmed, we will start shipping the medal orders that do not contain the custom holders (i.e. 3 piece holder/set and mirror base holders).

October update: The 2019 medals are in and looking good. Sales are doing well with more than 70% sold. Last month I inadvertently said we had 115 bronze and pewters minted. That was wrong - we only had 100 minted. So the correct minted quantities are Silver (225), Bronze (100) and Pewter (100), with quantities currently remaining of 31 silver, 27 bronze, and 31 pewter.

I am currently looking for a new source/supplier for the custom medal (and awards) holders. At this rate I donít expect to have the awards for the chair positions that we normally hand out. As soon as we can get the holders I will get those distributed. I will have the antique bronze medal at the banquet so people can view it. Single medals and orders that do not have custom holders will be going out in the mail this week. As soon as I have the custom holders, Iíll start mailing the 3 piece holder sets.

November/December update: Itís official Ė we sold out of the silver medals. There are currently 17 bronze and 22 pewter medals left for the 2019 P-51 Mustang. This year the custom holders have been a hassle to get, but we have a supplier now making the holders. My goal is to have them all mailed out in time for Christmas. (Reported by Tony K.)

February (2019) update: Itís official Ė we sold out of the silver medals. There are currently 14 bronze and 20 pewter left for the 2019 P-51 Mustang. (Reported by Tony K.)
