Hello Fellow Modeler’s

Well it's that time of year again for our
annual Hobby Expo.

IPMS Santa Rosa and IPMS Mt. Diablo would like to invite you and your friends to one the biggest hobby events in Northern California, IPMS REGION 9.

We expect to have more that a dozen hobby clubs at the
expo again this year including model railroads, RC planes
and tanks, ships and cars, sail planes, battling robots, war gaming, military displays, Civil War and WWII re enactors and much more.

We usually have over forty vendor tables for the Expo selling kits, decals, books and supplies.

There will be a free model Make and Take for the kids including plastic kits and Legos. And our annual crowd favorite the Speed Model Building contest, with a $50.00 winner’s prize and trophy.

We are also planning a really outstanding raffle! If you attended
last years expo you know how good our raffle was and is still talked about. We hope to have just as many great items this year. There will be three raffles at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm.

And of course our Scale Model Contest with over forty Senior and Junior categories with first, second and third place awards for each category.

This year’s theme, “Good Old Fun”, Build something from your childhood. The theme will be a separate category and will receive a special trophy.

Plus our traditional 10 special awards that are hand made
by one of our members. Each award as usual will include a
famous autograph.

You don't want to miss this one as it is shaping up to be one of the best of the year!
