Hello friends!

I'm glad to let you know that the IPMS Club "Alamo Squadron" is ON to have its 35th Model Fiesta in San Antonio, Texas; on February 20th, 2016.
Hours are from 9 AM to 5 PM (award ceremony at 4 PM), all Central Standard Time.

The Fiesta will be held in the San Antonio Event Center, with 55,000 square foot of scale modeling related activities. Among them are:

As usual, we are having our Heroes and Aces dignataries in house. Some of the pilots to meet and greet are:
