AMPS 2012 International Convention: Who is Attending?

I was asked to see who is going to be there and throw out a couple reminders.
- Preregistration closes on 15 April
- If you are attending without a model, visit the AMPS Website and request a nametag: http://www.amps-armor.org/ampssite/admin/shows/adminShowsNametags.aspx . It is great to put a face to a name that you have been “talking” to via the Internet.
- Volunteer. The show will not go on without some help from the show participants. -We will need judges – it is guaranteed to make you a better modeler, runners to move the models around, security assistance and some strong backs, with the optional weak minds, for set up on Thursday, 26 April and tear down on Saturday, 28 April after the Award Ceremony.

I will do a separate “Volunteer post” in a couple of days or so with the times and place for setting up the show venue.

16 days and counting…

Hello John,
I'll be there...my first AMPS show, my very first. I'll be driving up with Tom Faith and maybe one other. At this time I'm not sure what I can do, but will look for you to see what/where I could help (if need being). I'm not a AMPS member and will be that day as I'll be buying the membership package on Thursday evening or Friday night. See you in 16 days!

Happy Modeling,

Oh yeah...the Husky will be there, just finished it up tonight.

I'll be there. Already registered and will do a few hours of judging again. I expect to arrive sometime Thursday, if early enough, I'll help with set up again. Looking forward to seeing old friends again.

I was planning on going but the new house and a recently busted water heater is costing me too much money.
If i can find a ride I might be able to go.

I will not be there. However, the local Atlanta AMPS folks will be bringing up a model for me.
