List of nationals locations/dates?

Recommended Posts

Just as the title suggests, is there a list somewhere of all national contests, starting with the first, with corresponding dates, or at least the year it was held?

 

I recently stated (on another site), that I bought my first Alclad paints at the national in Dallas, but have no real idea when that was. I only know that it was several years ago. I do have a T-shirt bought in Dallas that has the dates and locations up to that time, but that seems to have gone missing.

 

Thanks a bunch,

I believe Dallas was in 2000. As to that list, it's been on this Forum in several guises over the years. There's a thread (last in the list at the bottom) over in "General Information" and "About IPMS Convention" about it with several rather complete lists.

Awesome, thank you Ron.

You're right, it was 2000. It only seems like a few years ago anyway. Time is just flying by. Incidentally, I did a search before asking my question, but nothing came up. I did not eplore all the catagories though, doing that right now.

 

My first national was right here in 1991, I joined the Gateway chapter right after that.

I've been to all the St. Louis' Nationals and they were all excellent.

Yep! Excellent shows in St. Louis! :smiley20:

 

However....driving there in Ron's car, without air conditioning, in July, with the windows down allowing all of the newly applied FERTILIZER in southern Indiana and Illinois to waft through the car was NOT fun! :smiley26: That was 3-4 hours of stink that still causes me to shudder.... :smiley11:

This will be my 24th Nats since the 78' Hotlanta convention! That'll be 24 out of the last 35, for a respectable .685 batting average. See y'all next week!

Thats a great listing. My first show was in AZ in '04, and I wished I had joined earlier.

We would love to go to the NE again, but the clubs up there tell us that the price of venues that can accommodate us have skyrocketed out of sight, making it fiscally impossible. Buffalo came close to bidding a few years back, but it just didn't work out for one reason or another.
