Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our 61st Annual Washington Show October 1st at the Springfield Hilton in Virginia. We sincerely appreciate our exhibitors, attendees, sponsors, vendors, other local clubs, and volunteers for helping to make our show a success. The turnout was the most we have had in quite a while, with 55 individual exhibitors in the competition and over 300 pieces on display. Some are featured here along with our awards list. Thanks to Patrick Kiser, Scott Sheltz and Jim Richey for the pictures. We will have a full report in our October Dispatch newsletter and on photos on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/NCMSSclub.org. All categories were well represented. Thank you to the judging team volunteers who gave their time to judge the displays.
The NCMSS is dedicated to supporting the modeling hobby and we enjoy giving other clubs the opportunity to display their work. We were joined by the NVNTRAK Railroading club, who had an impressive running train display. The Washington Ship Modelers, Northern Virginia Modelers (IPMS) and Washington Armor Club (AMPS) also brought impressive displays from their members.
This year we had special display for long-time club member Joe Bles, who was unable to attend the show. A special thanks goes out to the many happy attendees who were able to take home some of Joe’s splendid figures that he donated to his friends in the hobby.
Finally, our show would not have been possible without the talented participants who displayed their inspirational work. On behalf of the NCMSS thank you and hope to see you in 2023!
