National Capital Model Soldiers Society 2021 Annual Show
September 25, 2021
Thanks to our staff and contest entrants for a great show!
Thanks to everyone that attended and supported our 60th Annual Washington Show September 25th at the Springfield Hilton. Having a live modeling event, one of the first in this area, was certainly a challenge in the current environment, but we are back.
Everyone enjoyed themselves and there were many great exhibits on display. Some are featured here along with our awards list. We will have more photos in our October Dispatch Newsletter and on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/NCMSSclub.org.
This is our second year at the Springfield Hilton and, as with our 2019 Show, the Hilton staff did an excellent job supporting the event. We had positive feedback from vendors and exhibitors on having early setup on Friday. The show officially started Saturday at 9am with the Young Marines Color Guard presenting the flag with a pledge of allegiance, which is a tradition at our show.
While the general admission was down some from previous shows, we had over 250 individual models, figures, and dioramas on display. We had 36 registered exhibitors this year, which was comparable to the 39 in 2019. Unfortunately, some regulars could not attend due to conflicts and other concerns. The exhibitors that did make it had been very busy over the last two years and many of their displays were quite large. All categories were well represented. Thank you to the judging team volunteers who donated their time to judge the displays.
We were joined by the NVNTRAK Railroading club, who had an impressive running train display. The Washington Ship Modelers and Washington Armor Club also brought impressive displays from their members. The venue was at full capacity, and we thank all the vendors for their support. Many promised to be back again next year.
We would like to thank our show’s sponsors for their generous support. Please remember them when you’re making your hobby purchases. 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 2022!
