    Not yet Clayton, organizing committee meetings have not begun yet, but should soon. I can tell you the model show will be the 3rd Saturday in September (September 17th, 2016). I will also be looking for vendors this year.
    I'll post something as soon as I have more information.
    Thanks for asking and hope to see you there again this year.

    What a fun show. Had a really good time.
    The swap meet had lots of bargains to be had, found the two kits I was looking for. 
    Thanks to the entire show staff for making us feel so welcome.
    I also want to Think Danno, and " the gal that lets him hang out with her" for being such welcoming hosts. It's always a pleasure to see you guys. You're the best!
    Brad, Great to see you, and thanks for the name tags, it was nice to put a face to the names of the other board members I hadn't previously met.
    John T. and Chris, sorry we didn't get to visit much, but it was great to see you both. 
    Oh!, and count me in for next year!

    I remember that, it never failed the shows were on the same weekend. I was almost to the point where I was going to call Goodguys and tell them they needed to change their date - 
     
    But it all worked out. See ya in April.

    Sorry to hear that. We will try to get some pics posted of both the Model Contest and 1:1's, not quite the same as being there, but it should give you a good sample of what shows up.

    I forgot to add -
