We held Jaxcon 2021 yesterday and had a good, if less than normal turnout. We found a new venue, but the only date they had was April 10th, so we only had 5-6 weeks to get it put together. That meant that there was only "FB advertising" and "word of mouth" to invite people; and since we were not on anyone's "calendar", quite a few regulars attendees had previous plans. And, of course, there are many people who are not ready to deal with crowds even as the "pandemic" trends down.

We had a full, sold out vendors area and 50 contest entrants that brought just over 250 entries for the model tables. Our new facility was the North Jacksonville Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, which is a BEAUTIFUL, slightly larger room. We also had opening and closing prayers, as well as a 10min. Christ-centered "devotional" mid day as a part of renting their hall; which seemed very well received.

Here's 2 links....one to the winners, and one to the rest of the pics in general. Hope some of YOU can make it to Jaxcon 2022!

Not a bad turnout at all Gil. That F-18C is awesome. D you know what kit it was? I've been looking for a good F-18A kit in 48. I'm currently leaning toward Kinetic.

Thanks!

 Congrats on having a show and well done on the whole thing! I'm thrilled to see this. Beautiful work on those tables, however I would have loved to have seen bigger pics.

 

Way to go Gil! Thank you for posting those pics. Your club might be the first one to put on a show post pandemic!

Good to hear about modelling shows gradually making a return on your side of the pond.

Hopefully IPMS UK Scale Modelworld show will be back on in November!    Fingers crossed!

We have all lost a lot of shows and branch/chapter meetings over this last year or so.

I really miss meeting face to face with fellow modellers, so hopefully some resemblance of normality will soon return albeit probably quite gradually.

Thanks all...I lost count of the people who simply THANKED us for HAVING the show!

 

Jim: I do believe the F-18C is the Kinetic kit....and it's also the only one that comes with wing fold option in the kit that I'm aware of.
