Pre-Registration Update- Win a Prize!!!!

Hello Everyone,

We are happy to offer our Pre-registration option again to all our entrants. Pre-registration opens tomorrow at 9:00 am September 1st, 2012 and will run through to September 13th at 9:00 pm. Entries submitted after the 9:00 pm deadline will be asked to follow our standard registration process and will not eligible for our new incentive (see below).

Registration can be a time consuming process. Though we have made strides to enhance our system, no system is 100% perfect. We strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this option as it helps both you, by speeding up your check-in time, and us by taking some of the stress of our registration/welcoming team.

As an incentive, all entrants who pre-register will have their name placed into a draw to win an Iwata Master Series BCR "Revolution" Airbrush set, complete with BCR "Revolution" Siphon Dual Action Airbrush, Hose, Canister of air, Adaptor, Spihon bottle, Airbrush cleaner and a nifty travelling case. This set retails at over $130 dollars (MSRP).

Last year we only had 10 people pre-register so the odds are in your favour! This airbrush set is great for the modeller on the move, those that are looking for a nice back up airbrush, or those who are looking for an inexpensive airbrush to take their modelling to the next level. Don't miss out! The winner will be announce the morning of the show!

Please refer to our Updates page for more information and pictures of the prize. Also refer to our Registration page for Pre-Registration instructions. Since we offer this new incentive there will be no discount on entry fees this year for those who pre-register. Standard registration fees apply. Please refer to our website for more information:

Stay tuned... The Silent Auction Sneak a Peak will be posted mid next week. We hope everyone has been saving because you will not be disappointed with this year's silent auction items! Please remember that we only accept cash and that there are no ATMs at The Military Museums, so we encourage everyone to plan ahead! Also, please stay tuned to our website as there will be some changes to our Silent Auction closing times in the afternoon. With the amount of graciously donated prizes we will have staged closing times by table number. We do not want anyone to miss out so please stay informed. More to follow on our website soon!


Sincerely
AMMS Coordination Team

Pre-Registation closed last night and we have a record number of pre-registrations! Thanks for taking the time as it will save you from having to wait in line....and you have a shot at winning the Iwata Airbrush set!

We also have a record amount of silent auction items (130 and possibly still climbing!). With all these great silent auction items and the awesome vendor tables you are going to need bags of money....so, we will have an ATM on site for easy access to cash. You will be able to spend to your hearts delight and take home not only medals and awards but lots of fantastic items from the silent auction tables.
