Well the holidays are at our doorstep once again with all the hustle and bustle of this season brings every year. Remember to take a short break from the model bench (yes, it will still be there when you get back), relax and spend some uninterrupted time reconnecting with family and friends over some holiday snacks and some egg nog or your preferred beverage. As you travel back and forth to parties and other holiday-themed events, drive safe and enjoy the events and people this holiday season brings.
With the AMPS 2018 International Show a little over 130 days to go (May 3-5, 2018), don't forget to get cracking on those builds and shore up plans to attend the biggest and greatest North American armor modeling convention in 2018 under one roof:
•Lodging: By now the AMPS block of rooms at the Hope Hotel where the convention is being held is probably sold out, so check out other local hotels near the conference and make those reservations.
•Sponsorships: Consider sponsoring a "Best Of" or individual category. Check out the AMPS Convention page to see all the categories needing sponsorships. Contact Glen Martin at [email protected] for more information on how you or your local model club can be a sponsor.
•AMPS Reviews: Check out the new AMPS reviews posted by the Review Crew. Warning! You will be spending holiday cash after visiting the Review Crew section.
•AMPS Homepage: Check out the AMPS homepage (amps-armor.org) for convention news you can use like seminar topics and speakers and the show schedule.
•Stand by for on-line pre-registration for the convention on the AMPS homepage in early 2018.
Notice to potential vendors: If you are on the fence about attending the show, there are only a few tables remaining. Contact Mike Reaves (AMPS-Atlanta) at [email protected] for table availability.
From all the AMPS officers and the 2018 Show Committee, may all modelers everywhere have a great holiday season filled with laughter, enjoyment and memorable times with family and friends.
