Momentum is building! Most of the rooms that were originally set aside at the hotel are reserved. Additional rooms have been added, but you should reserve yours soon before they all run out. We've also signed up 14 vendors already, totaling 64 tables. The vendors are listed at the bottom of the show page.

Website Issues
November 4, 2019

The recent problems with the website were due to an intermittent hardware issue on the server that runs our site. Our ISP has made repairs, and we expect things to be stable for the rest of this week. The site will be migrated to new hardware over the weekend, which should improve reliability further.

We are in the process of drafting plans to implement a fail over site in case the main site goes down again. Hopefully this will be in place before the end of the year.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience while we improve the AMPS website.

Thanks for all of the help at the Show in Buffalo!

Now enjoy yourselves this summer with any local and regional shows you may be attending, but do try to stay at least a bit active at your work benches, as the fall and winter shows will be upon us before you know it! 

The 2020 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania show with it’s theme of Last Battles will be here quicker than we think, so get those award winners out of their kit boxes and onto your benches!

Enjoy your summer!
