  1. Ralph Forehand Webmaster of the Year is Chris Bumgarner (Wright Field Scale Modelers) - for the second consecutive year. Congrats, Chris!
  2. Greetings From Wright Field Scale Modelers! We are looking forward to seeing you at WrightCon 2013, the IPMS/USA Region IV 2013 Convention, at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, on April 12th and 13th. A highlight of the 2012 event -- for a small group of modelers -- was the Behind the Scenes Tour of the Restoration Hangar presented by the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Availability is extremely limited and advance registration is required through NMUSAF’s Website. Reservations are now being taken for the April 12th tour, and they will be gone very quickly. Once the tour is full, no additional spaces can be added. Attendees planning to take the tour are encouraged to make their tour reservations ASAP, and are also encouraged to book their rooms at the Hope Hotel before the convention room block is sold out (use the code “IPMS” to get the special $75 convention room rate). Looking forward to seeing you in Dayton next April! Best Regards and Happy Modeling, Dave Koukol President and Contest Chairman IPMS/Wright Field Scale Modelers.
  3. Hello Everybody, Here’s a quick update regarding this year’s IPMS/USA Region IV Convention, April 13-14, at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton: Main Vendor Room is Sold Out! This means you’ll have ample opportunity to stimulate the economy with your tax returns, so please advise spouses accordingly. “Honey, I won it in the raffle,” has limited credibility. Overflow Vendor Space Available. We are now offering overflow vendor space and a place on the waiting list for our main vendor area. [Vendor Info] On-Site Lodging is Filling Up! Our event and the Doolittle Raiders’ Reunion the following week is making the Hope Hotel a popular place. Please make your reservations NOW before our room block expires on 3/13. After 3/13, there’s no guarantee of a room or the $70 discounted rate. Please use the group code “IPMS” to get the $70 rate. [Lodging Info] Schedule is Packed! If you haven’t been to the convention website in the past few days, please check out our Event Schedule – it’s absolutely packed with Seminars, Make-N-Take, NMUSAF Modelers’ Tour, Friday Social, Raffle, and more. B-25’s Are Coming! A couple dozen B-25’s will be marshaling at Grimes Field in Urbana, Ohio, as part of the 70th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo. Aircraft arrive Saturday and Sunday, with gates open to the general public starting at 9 a.m. each day. Grimes is about a 45-minute drive northeast of our event. [b-25 Info] Contest and Model Registration Forms Available Online. Maximize your fun and minimize your time doing paperwork at the event by filling out your contest paperwork in advance. We have savable PDF-format registration and model entry forms available now. Sponsorships Still Available for general categories. Thanks to Cincinnati Scale Modelers, IPMS/Eddie Rickenbacker, Fremont KitBashers, IPMS/John H. Glenn, and IPMS/Livonia, and IPMS/USA for their sponsorship of the event, and special thanks to our many industry supporters as well. [Sponsorship Info] Looking forward to seeing you all in April at Wright-Patt! Sincerely, Dave Koukol Contest Chairman
  4. Holy Cow! We're still six months out and we've already hit the 50% mark for vendor table reservations!! This is well ahead of our anticipated rate, so please make your reservations ASAP -- before the tables are all gone! Vendors: We Hear You Loud and Clear We recognize many vendors are really watching their budgets and closely managing their cash flow in this tough economy, so we've extended our Early Bird Discount through December 31st (was October 12th). We want to see as many of our favorite vendors in Dayton on April 13th and 14th as we can possibly accommodate! See our Vendor Page at http://ipmsdayton.com/vendors/ for the full scoop!
  5. Don...and the Whole CSM Crew: Another excellent show and great hospitality! Congrats on another one in the bag! Those attending from our chapter really had a great time.
  6. Hello Everyone! With the 2011-2012 Model Show Season underway, we just wanted to extend an invitation to the 2012 IPMS/USA Region IV Convention, hosted by IPMS/Wright Field Scale Modelers, Dayton's exciting new IPMS chapter. WrightCon 2012 will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 13 & 14, 2012, at the Hope Hotel and Conference Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. The event will be held just minutes away from one of the top military museums in the world, the National Museum of the United States Air Force, and is expected to draw a very strong turnout of model fans and their families. Highlights of the two-day show will include a spacious, well-lighted vendor area, modeling seminars, a "Make 'N Take" for young modelers, two social events (Friday night and Saturday night) and a tour of the restoration hangar at the Air Force Museum. The contest site, the Hope Hotel, will offer on-site dining and concessions and a special room rate of $70 + tax per night. Complete event information is available on our website at www.ipmsdayton.com/2012/. We look forward to seeing you in April 2012 for WrightCon 2012, the 2012 IPMS Region 4 Convention! Sincerely yours, Dave Koukol President and Contest Chairman IPMS/Wright Field Scale Modelers www.ipmsdayton.com
