*This event is being being presented by the members of the South Hills Modellers Association.

-Many of you already know that this is THE show to attend if you are a model Builder, Buyer, Collector or Seller of Plastic Models, Toys or Die-Cast vehicles.

-Our annual model contest is NOT judged by the Club, And is a NNL style contest (What is a NNL style contest?) It is a contest where those that are attending (Spectators, Buyers and/or Sellers) are the people doing the voting for the different model classes. There is no inept judging, bias or favoritism. The people's votes are the ones that count toward winning a trophy. Club members are not permitted to enter the contest.

-The club members will however have a table set up to show what we build and a club member present to provide information about the club if you would wish to join. The club table will be supervised at all times through-out the Expo.

*For those wanting tables to sell their products, It is highly recommended that you put your deposit down as soon as possible as these tables usually are bought well in advance of the Expo. Don't wait 'til the last minute to try to get as many tables as you need.

*All tables are 8 feet long and the cost is $25 for one and $20 each for two or more.

*We are always looking for sponsors for our Expo. Sponsorship levels start at $20. (Please contact Dave Henk for complete details)

*Anyone who would like to join the Club can fill out an application at the Club table. We are always looking for new members who like to participate in Club activities around the area during the course of the year.

*Please contact our Club President: David Henk at (412)-469-9680 for more information, table registration, sponsorships or other questions related to the Expo.

Poked my head in around lunchtime. Crowd seemed kind of subdued, not smaller, just...quieter. Might have been the weather it dumped about an inch of snow in a few hours right before the show started. As evidenced by the parking lot when it all melted, cars were all akimbo from where the lines on the ground where. Not sure everyone was out of hibernation yet. Talked to some friends, picked up a couple of kits, voted in the contest (although I left well before awards time). Well worth the drive. ^_^

I was just at Toledo on the 17Th, I had an "ok" time. There were a lot of over priced promos there. It wasn't really what I expected, But Anything to do with models is always good.. I bought a few things I was looking for. It seems weird they would have a model show in the back of a sporting event center! We had to walk through the people getting ready to play hockey with all they're gear and all they"re family/friends. It just seemed like a "thrown together " show to me as it was my first time attending. I am however planning on going to the NNL in October. I hope that show is better then the last one.
