Thanks to everyone that helped staff the convention, visited with us, set up as vendors and entered models at the 2010 IPMS Region 2 Convention in Fredericksburg, Virginia on the 15-16 October. We really had a great show at a great venue. We especially want to thank AMPS. This venue is the same site where the AMPS/IPMS Central Virginia chapter will host the 2011 AMPS International Convention next April. Without this partnership, neither group would have received the special arrangement made by the great people at the Fredericksburg Hospitality House.
We are very appreciative of all the hard work other folks did to come to our show to make it such a success.
By the numbers:
Model registrants (8 were juniors): 119
Model entries: 620
Vendor tables: 78
Visitors: over 300
So definitely a huge and successful show! We can't say thank you enough to all the IPMS Chapters and related clubs that supported the convention with sponsorships and time. Thank you very much!

The International Plastic Modeling Society (IPMS) was created by modelers as a means to help one another learn model building and acquire not only basic, but advanced skills that increase the enjoyment of the hobby. The membership extends across many international as well as demographic lines. Our members have varied interests, and not only work in plastic, as our name implies, but metal, wood, resin, and other mediums.
