The 2017 Show committee from the host chapter, Northeast Military Modeling Association (NMMA), is working on the target list and H hour is April 20 – 22, 2017
This year our rally point will be in Danbury, Connecticut at the Danbury Crown Plaza Hotel, 18 Ridgebury Road, Danbury, Connecticut 06810.
This new location takes the forward edge of the modeling area north to the same venue used for Armorcon. This will be an all in one show with the hotel as the show venue using their ballrooms to host our vendors and the largest armor model display on the planet. As of 3/11/17:
Pre-registration for the contest runs from January 1st to April 13th. Whether you pre-register or decide to brave the line-ups at the show, remember that all entrants have to be an AMPS member in good standing to compete in the Convention. You can pre-register and join or renew at a special combined rate. Click here for more details.
People are continuing to book rooms and it looks like a great show. We just added a few more rooms but the show rate ENDS March 21.
We have had a lot of support this year and a great line up for this year seminars. Feel free to look at the web site for the list and schedule
Off Site Trip
This year we will be able to go to the Military Museum of Southern New England. Attendees can go over on their own any time the museum is open on Thurs thru Sun. The museum will have their hatches open and will allow attendees to get in and crawl around whatever they want. People who visit the museum will still pay the entry fee.
More than 20 vendors and over 90 tables have been sold. A list of vendors are on the AMPS website show section. There are still some tables available, please contact Mike Reeves (email@example.com) for table reservations.
As we approach the show if you have any kits on the shelf that is collecting dust, feel free to bring them to the show and donate to the raffle
