I am in the process of moving to the Longmont, CO area and was wondering if there are any car specific clubs within an hour of the area. Hobby does not appear to be as active as what I am used to from being in the Northern Illinois / Southern Wisconsin area.

I have a longtime friend that lives in the Denver area and there is very little model car related activity in that state. When I tell him about model clubs and swap meets here in the Midwest, he just drools.

I too would like to find a car model club. There are IPMS chapters. Even a show on Oct 12 at the ranch. I got a bad taste from IPMS. Maybe we could get one going. My son works part time at the Ft. Collins Hobbytown. He may beable to spread the word.

There must be more of us Car modelers around as there is quite a few entries at the Good-Guys Colorado Natonals model contest. unless one of you are stacking the deck??? LOL.

 

I attended the IPMS show in Loveland it was a nice show but as  with all IPMS shows it concintrated on Aircraft. 7 catagories for vehicles.

 

  We need to get something going in this area.

So Matt did you make it to Longmont? Whereabouts in Longtuckey do you live. I'm out at road 3.5 and 119, by the sandstone skatepark. I would love to get together with other car modelers. I went to one at Jefferson county fairgrounds the day after valentine's day. Only had maybe 20 cars total with the race cars. Anyhow there is a show, not a contest in Denver on april 13th I think. I'll look at the flier and let everyone know the whereabouts when I get home. I could probably accommodate 3 or 4 people in my new shop I built in my backyard, but its only 10 x 14. Could be done though. I was really into the hobby back in  97 or so and it was hoppin. But now I agree the car modelers are pretty light in the area.

I am from the Denver metro area and I agree a few years back it seemed like there were a lot more people in this hobby now I find myself pretty much hitting up Michaels and Hobby Lobby to get my supplies and kits I dont like going to the local Hobbytown unless thats my only option (Those guys are very rude) I would like to meet others who share in my love for this hobby and learn from them!  :D

The magazine is not based in Denver, but only published and mailed from there.
