2017 International Paper Modelers' Convention

All, it looks like the 2017 IPMC will be on 3-5 November, as the hotel was already pre-booked for our usual last-weekend-in-October slot. I'll have confirmation of this in a few days, but wanted to give everyone a heads-up. Please stand by . . .

I can't plan that far ahead.
I can barely think about next week!

2017 IPMC Theme and Award Rules

INTERNATIONAL PAPER MODELERS' CONVENTION (IPMC) 2017 AWARDS

INTENT: The primary purpose of the International Paper Modelers' Convention is the enjoyment and promotion of the art and craft of paper model design and building; the sharing of wisdom, tips, and techniques; the trading of stories about the craft and its artisans; and the sharing of camaraderie and good fellowship. Awards are bestowed in that spirit.

Awards will be made in the following categories:

PEOPLE'S CHOICE: The People’s Choice Award will be presented to the model voted "best" by all of the visitors and participants. A small card with a number printed on it will be placed by each model. Every person who walks through the door will be given a ballot to register an opinion as to the model they think is best by whatever criteria they choose. The model with the most votes wins.

THEME CATEGORY - TANKS AND TANKERS: George S. Patton, Jr.; SS Pendleton; the Renault FT; Esso gasoline trucks; the 20-mule-team borax wagon; a jail holding cell for miscreants; the briefing room of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff; and the Pearl Harbor oil facility: all “tanks and tankers.” Use your imagination to come up with an innovative model or set of models that fit this broad definition. The Awards Committee has the final say on what constitutes a “tank” or “tanker.”

BEST TABLE DISPLAY: Prizes will be awarded on the basis of eye appeal, enhancement of the appearance of the models displayed, and overall impression.

MOST UNUSUAL MODEL: Eye appeal and artisanship count, of course, but this one is entirely subjective, and one award, with one prize, will be determined by the sempiternal and inscrutable Awards Committee.

GREG PERRY SILK PURSE OUT OF A SOW’S EAR AWARD: Endowed by Greg Perry. One award to the best build of a "bad" kit. “Bad” meaning poor paper, ill-fitting parts, and other challenges.

AWARDS COMMITTEE SPECIAL AWARDS (ACSAs): The Awards Committee will make a number of awards for categories to be announced at the time of the awards ceremony. These awards are intended to recognize contributions to the paper modeling craft and to the IPMC, leavened by good humor and fellowship.

"Tanks" ?! Why didn't you do this theme when I was there last time?
sheesh.
Now, I dont have a Tank to compete with.
My Saladin isn't a "tank", so its no good.

..............
I have just signed up for the Toronto Scale Model Show (Ajax 37)
which looks like it will be held on October 28 (based on last years date).

That makes it hard to plan to do IPMC the following weekend, but I am considering it.
We'll see how many models I can sell this year and if I can raise enough "hobby fund".
It all comes down to costs.

Sure would be fun to do both!
No promises though.

Think a Tank(er) would count? Oops. Read first, then respond. Too much time on Facebook for me.

I have a suggestion for this year's get-together, occasioned when my printer accidentally burped out multiple copies of a model when I only needed one. I must not be the only person with models that were printed but, for whatever reason, I'm not ever going to build. So I suggest a free-exchange table that we can all toss our orphans onto for whoever wants them. They should be legal, of course, such as free-to-download models. Does this sound like something we should do?

Well, the life organizers have conspired against me again, and it appears that
I will not be in attendance this year. Changing the dates of IPMC, again, coincides
with the Senior recognition night for my last son at his high school.
Family trumps friends, as he only gets to do this once. Perhaps I will reappear next year.
