Who's bidding onthe 2014 show?

Recommended Posts

I know it's the 50th anniversary of IPMS, and that we supposedly have more than 2 clubs presenting bids, which is why they're allowing an extra hour at the bid session this year. But WHO are those presenters?

Just curious should the show be in the East or Midwest? I would love to see something around the USAF museum.

Not sure how accurate this is, but I have heard Tidewater, Atlanta and Columbus are three of the clubs presenting bids. Again not sure if this a accurate list. Just what I have heard.

I can't say who is, but I know one that is not, and that's Columbus.

 

As to east/west, due to the special nature of the year, bidding was opened to the entire country.

St. Louis is bidding based on a conversation I had with one of their members. Already submitted I beleive. I also heard Tdewater.

 

Chicago would have been nice only to the fact that was where the first convention was held 50 years ago

Atlanta is not bidding, but Mike Idacavge, Frank Mitchell and I are involved in a Chattanooga bid.

 

 

I have been told it was Richmond, not Tidewater, too.

And we have been told by ppl from SC that Spartanburg is bidding again.

 

It would be nice if the current 2VP would show us the same courtesy the previous 2VP always did.

Aree there really any secrets two weeks before the show, or does this EB enjoy the rumor mill, too?

I do hope it is in the central US! I really want to go to the 50th anniversary Nats, but if it's all the way on the East Coast, that ain't gonna happen!

Sounds like there going to be at least 3-4 bids. I always hated that when I was on the board as it was difficult (to say the least) in picking from a bunch of good bids and only picking one

Yep, and it discourages the losers from bidding again when it's opened up to everybody.

I have currently received four bid proposals for consideration to host the 2014 Convention. I am not anticipating any more bids, but it is possible that someone may come in at the last minute and submit a bid. The four groups and respective host city are, in no particular order;

 

IPMS/Gateway - St. Louis, Missouri

Mid-Carolina/IPMS, IPMS/Gamecocks, IPMS/Piedmont Scale Modelers - Columbia, South Carolina

IPMS Tidewater - Hampton, Virginia

Chattanooga National Convention Committee - Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

I will make no comments on the contents of the bids. The review team is examining the bids and we are looking forward to the presentations on Saturday, August 11th at 10AM.

 

We'll see you in Orlando!

Sounds like some good places,. I agree if it is to be a 'special' anniversary convention that a centerally locacted place would be best for both coasts folks to have a equal chance to attend. just my .02

Brian, well put. St Louis would probably be the better attended location... depending on the venue it is actually in.

Of course, my choice is biased towards 'Nooga. (or should I hope it's somewhere else so I can be lazy and just go?!)

If you look at the convention schedule, you will see the Bid Presentations are made on Saturday from 10-12.

The E-Board meets afterward and, as in the past, the results will be announced at the Banquet.
