Greetings Fellow Modelers.

Considering the number of modelers in the Montreal area and its surroundings, and the lack of related events to promote the hobby, we are considering organizing a modeling competition. The idea behind this is to keep the organization as simple as possible. We do not plan to make this first effort as big as the IPMS Nationals or AMPS, therefore there are no plans to invite vendors and organize raffles, but this could change. We will however try to organize something of interest for the duration of the judging period.

Before we undertake the effort to organize such competition, we require your input. What we need to know is whether or not such thing is desired in the area and would you as a modeler be interested in attending and/or giving some of your time to ensure the success of the event? Your responses, comments and input will determine if and when this could take place. Thank you.

Francis

I am assuming that this is in addition to the Gryffon Hobbies show???

Which I plan on attending this year as opposed to CAPCON in Ottawa.

Given the date of Francis's post (June 2006), I'm guessing he was referring to the Hobby Gryphon show.

Sorry to hear you won't be attending CapCon this year. I think it's going to be a good show. But then again, I'm biased, since I'm part of the committee.
