Hi All,
Armorcon 2013 is fast approaching on September 27-28, 2018 and while I’ve gotten some responses for my begging for judges, the response has been less than encouraging. Please, please, please, select a session or two for judging or helping out with the show (sending me an e-mail saying, “I’ll be there on Friday” doesn’t really help. I kinda need a commitment here). I can guarantee that you’ll have fun, make friends and become a better modeler from the experience! For more info on the show itself, go to: http://www.ipmsnmma.org/armorcon/armorcon.htm .
WE NEED JUDGES! For those of you who have attended the extravaganza in the past, you’ll remember we have had 250+ models at this show. It is not unreasonable to think that this will not happen again, as the AMPS International was held in Auburn in 2012 and in Atlanta this year. For the AMPS judging system to work, it requires 4 judges for every piece, that’s a lot of man-hours. If you are coming and you are competing, I would strongly suggest you consider a judging tour. They’re 90 minutes long and will help us out a lot. The judge’s meeting is at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm on Friday and 8:00 am and 1:00 pm on Saturday. Traditionally, a “thank you” for the judges has been first crack at the vendors. However, this will ONLY be done on FRIDAY morning. Ideally, I’d like to have manpower for 3 tables to start the show (12 judges and one runner). So please, if you are planning on coming to the show the night before, and staying at the hotel, I’d really appreciate it if you would come and lend a hand early on. I’m going to post the sign-up sheet on the web. It won’t be interactive, but just send me an e-mail to the address on the bottom of the page and I’ll get you in. It will, however, be on a first-come, first-serve basis and I’ll use the posting time as my determining factor. Here’s the url for the schedule: http://decalcomaniacs.net/Armorcon/Armorcon2013JudgingSchedule.pdf
Next, if you are interested, we will be having the Judge’s Certification class on Friday night (time TBD). If you would like to become a certified judge, please let me know and I’ll talk to Mike Del Vecchio to set up the class.
Finally, Mike Petty has been gracious enough to offer a table captain training class. This will be held concurrently with the Judge’s Certification class, so if you are already AMPS certified, this might be a good way to enhance your skills. He’s already posted on Missing Lynx, but if you haven’t seen it yet, drop me a line and I’ll make sure you are enrolled.
So, to recap: go to the link above and pick out the available time(s) you want to judge or work at the show. Then shoot me an e-mail with those time(s). I’ll add them to the list, update the table and post it. Also, if you would like to be enrolled in the Judge’s certification class, please let me know. I look forward to seeing everyone on the 27-28th of September and I look forward to working with you at the show.
Regards,
Georg Eyerman
Chief Judge
