  9. Pre-Registration will be going active and online on April 1st. It's going to be HUGE!!!!
  10. Thanks Mark, we told all our vendors to stock-up on as many 1/72 armor kits as possible. 🙂
  11. Effective today we are officially SOLD-OUT of tables in the Vendor Sales Room. To help protect our vendors and attendees we decided to make some table adjustments to the convention room to allow a safer distance between vendor stations. We are confident that the remaining 280 tables will be packed full of the goodies and amazing deals you are all waiting for. A special thanks to all our amazing vendors who signed up early, paid in full and pertinently cooperated with these changes. NOTE - if you are vendor who reserved tables and have not yet paid for them, we regret to inform
  12. Greetings, The launch of event pre-registration has been rescheduled February 1st to April 1st, 2021 to allow for the continued stabilization of the Covid-19 situation. We feel this postponement will allow for a greater confidence in those planning to attend The Very Best of the West National Convention. Convention planning continues to progress ahead of schedule, vendor table sales continue to be brisk with less than 30 tables (out of 320) left for sale, room reservations continue to come in and as of this date far exceed our original expectations (of 1,600 room nights) for a total

  14. UPDATE - As of today we have 2,689 room-nights sold at the Rio. Although we are sold-out of weekend $89.00 rooms, the are still rooms available at the Rio and for a short time they will still honor the $89.00 rate for weekday reservations. If you have not booked a room yet, please do so while the partial discount still applies. Thanks
  15. Received our monthly report from the Rio and was pleased to learn that we currently at 2,692 room-nights sold, which equates to 658 individual room reservations. Also received a fantastic email today from Jose Antonio Castrejon, Vice President of IPMS Mexico who informed me that he will be attending along with a contingent from his group. We welcome our south of the border model brothers and sisters and look forward to having them join us at the 21' Nats.
  16. My vote goes to the guys and gals of San Marcos for all their hard work this year!
  17. We have just been informed by the Rio that we are now officially SOLD-OUT of all 2,400 room-nights. As a courtesy, they will honor the $89.00 discounted room rate for a few more days for weekdays ONLY! We will be reaching out to other resorts in the area to see if we can secure a discounted room rate for those that missed out. Thanks

  19. Pete, we are getting the same feeling as you! All I can say is thank God I am not in charge of judging! 🙂
  20. Room Update - As many of you know we sold out of our 1,600 room-nights a few days after opening our 21' Nats Website. As promised we added another 600 room-nights for a total of 2,200, but before the contracts were even signed they too were sold-out. After conferring with the IPMS Nats Committee we were given permission to add a final 200 room-nights for a total of 2,400 which will be final room block at the discounted amount. As of Friday there are only a few left of those. It is unlikely that the Rio will honor the $89 discounted room rate after that, but our fingers are crossed.
  21. As hard as my job my be as show chairman, its nothing compared to the guys and gals that are going to have to judge this show. Chattanooga is going to be a hard show to beat, as well as follow. The team there did an amazing job! As of this morning, over 568 rooms have been booked, which is over 1,950 room nights. A great many people are taking advantage of the low rate and are coming in early and staying late. That is eating up a lot of the room-nights, which is what we promoted. Thanks for everyone's support. 🙂
  22. I was just notified by The Rio that we have already sold-out of our 1600 room block as of 13:00 today. I secured another 400 to hold us through the weekend but it highly recommended that anyone interested in booking a room and has not done so yet, book their room this weekend. I will be reaching out to our Hotel Rep on Monday to see if we can increase it further as well as trying to secure back-up rooms at the Gold Coast and Palms. Thank You
  23. Pete, I'll be getting a full report from The Rio bi-weekly but my contact at The Rio emailed me this morning to tell me that they have already booked over 300 room-nights so far out the 1600 we blocked out. She also said their online system was almost completely overwhelmed for a short time on Wednesday with a lot of reservations coming in at the same time. Several reservations came in from outside the U.S. Its a little more than we expected for the first few days, but we are obviously pleased with the excitement and interest so far. I'll continue to monitor the progress to see if we n
