JAXCON 2022 WILL BE A 2-DAY SHOW!


Recommended Posts

JAXCON 2022 IS A 2-DAY GO!!

 

Jaxcon 2022 will be held next February 11th and 12th! In an effort to make Jaxcon even more enjoyable for the attendees and vendors, we're going to get the ball rolling on FRIDAY night (the 11th)! Why should YOU make plans to be there early? To start with, we'll be registering models from 6-8pm, so JAXCON will be "officially" open then. Second, we're going to FEED YOU! There will be a "pizza social hour" from 7-8pm as part of Jaxcon. And third, we're going to have a SPECIAL FRIDAY RAFFLE of several nice items (to be announced at a later date) that will be given away to FRIDAY attendees, and unavailable to win on Saturday! And there will be the vendors who've arrived on Friday, so you can get the jump on the vendors area too!

 

Of course, Saturday will still be a full day of fun, with model registration, our HUGE raffle, even more vendors than before, judging, and the usual camaraderie found as you visit with friends all day. We're going to try to have 2 food trucks instead of just the one like last year so as to give our attendees an even better chance of not having to go anywhere to take care of their needs throughout the day. And, we still plan on having the awards presented and then conclude Jaxcon by 5pm, so anyone who wants to get home on Saturday night doesn't need to spend anything on an extra night's stay if they don't want to.

 

Jaxcon 2022 will be held at the same location as Jaxcon 2021 earlier this year: the North Jacksonville Baptist Church assembly hall, 8531 N. Main St. (US-17), Jax, FL, 32218; which is on the north side of Jax, very near the Zoo. Those of you who made it last spring can attest to the large, will lit room; plenty of parking, and the ease of access from I-95. For those of you wanting a hotel, we suggest using one at the Jax International airport exit on I-95, just north of the I-295 interchange and about 10mins from the church. We'll also be trying to work a "deal" with one of them to save our attendees and vendors some money; more on that in the future!

If you're A club contact, please pass this info along to all of your fellow model club members, and anyone else who you think would be interested in a weekend of modeling fun at Jaxcon 2022! Keep an eye out on our IPMS First Coast webpage and on the IPMS First Coast Facebook page for updated info on the show. We hope to see ALL Y'ALL at Jaxcon 2022 next February 11th and 12th!
