Less than a WEEK til JAXCON 2019!

Recommended Posts

Jaxcon 2019 will be held on Saturday, February 9th, from 9-6pm at the UNF University Center in Jacksonville, FL.  This will be our 17th Jaxcon, and probably the 10th or so at the UNF Center.

The biggest difference this year we want people to know about is that we will be a FULLY OPEN GSB show! EVERY model brought we be judged against the Standard. EVERY model that is brought will be able to win a medal IF it measures up to the Standard. You will beat no one, and no one will "beat" you!

We've developed a new judging system that involves NO "math" or "points". It's still rooted in the basics of IPMS, but is much more flexible for the judges (since they'll judge independently at their leisure) and will also allow us to keep the model side of the room open all day, instead of needing to close it for judging.

Our vendors area is once again sold out (and in record time this year)! And, we'll have Fine Scale Modeler AND a SAM publications rep covering our show. So, if you bring a model to the show, your entry (whether it wins anything or not) has a chance to be photographed and appear in 4 different modeling magazines!

Although we've gone to GSB, we'll still have all of the Best Ofs and Special awards that we've always had. We'll also still have the Ace of Aces category (the only 1-2-3 category in the show) where you can pit one of your past winning models against other past winners in a head to head showdown.

Jaxcon has become one of the largest shows in the southeast, and we're looking to make it even better! We hope YOU will make plans to join us for the FUN!

Here's a link to our website where you can get all of the details and info you need:  http://ipmsfirstcoast.org/
