22nd International Paper Model Convention, October 2019

Hi all,

By now, most of us who have attend, have gotten back home, and unpacked our cars and put away all of the models, and maybe do some laundry.

As they say after a team wins their championship, planning for the next one starts immediately.

So in that vein, the 2019 version of IPMC, the 22nd, is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of October 25-27.
We do not foresee any problems with the Hotel, but if there are changes, we will let everyone know as soon as we hear.

One of the most anticipated announcements coming out the awards announcements is the theme for the convention:

Oktoberfest

Anything German goes, so if you build ships, German ships, Armor = German tanks or other militaria, so go through your stash, pull out that Tiger or Graf Zeppelin aircraft carrier, and start building.

If you have never attended and you are local to Sterling Virginia, we, Papermodelers.com and International Paper Model Convention, invite you to come visit, chat with fellow paper modelers, buy kits, get inspired, and if you want to display your models, we will have a table for you.

If you have any questions, post them here, or send me a private message, and I or others will try to get you sorted.

Rick

Thanks for this info, Rick. Looks like the 21st was a great success. Lil and I hope to be at the 22nd.

This one will be on my radar, especially since I hope to have at least two thirds of my current project complete by then.

A small update: I've checked with the hotel and the 25-27 October 2019 dates are open, so we've penciled them in. I'll let everyone know when we've finalized the arrangements (including the room block!).

It was great seeing everybody last weekend. Attendance was a bit lower than usual, but it was still a good crowd and a nice mix of veterans and first-timers. See y'all next year, if not before!

The silk purse out of sow's ear award prizes have been determined and are on order. Also, if I am unable to attend, Texman has graciously agreed to be my surrogate judge for this year's award.
