[Scroll down to Post#11 to see the report from HeritageCon7]

Mar 03 at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum
in Hamilton (Mount Hope)

HeritageCon 7
Hamilton IPMS
full details here: http://www.ipmshamilton.ca/default.aspx?pg=c1af4786-2919-43d3-a890-38f8adfc703e



...

I (Dave's Card Creations & PaperModelShop.com) will be attending!
I have two Vendors Tables booked, so I will be displaying some Models
and answering questions and giving out Cards and selling CDs
and promoting Card Modeling in general!

I am also seriously considering entering a couple of kits for judging
in the Model Contest.
There are "Paper" categories...although only Aircraft and Ship categories that I can see.
(I have put in a call about this.

Anyway...anyone who can make it to the show...PLEASE DO!
Stop by, say hello, bring a model or two.
If you want to come and display some models, I will give you some room on my Tables.
Or maybe you would just like to come and hang out for the day?
I can always use the extra hand.
Just let me know.

yes, I am thinking about entering the Little Willie Tank
and the Canadian Armored Car models.

But they only have categories for Paper Aircraft and Paper Ships.
I am trying to find out if they are going to add a paper Vehicle category
or I should just enter them into the regular Armour category?

...
I booked my two tables, so I will be attending as a Vendor/Exhibitor.
Only question will be about the entries for the model contest itself.

You can ask the organizers, I understand they sometimes change models to other categories, and according to IPMS this is accepted.

no, this is my problem...I have sent an email to the organizers and haven't received any response yet.

This is why I did not attend the show last year, because nobody answered my communications.
I hope this isn't the case again.

Then... let it be a surprise!

They HAVE to either modify the categories or put those models around the tables.

well, I am still preparing for HeritageCon (in less than two weeks now)

and I have still not heard anything from the organizers.
(I sent a second email to the one and only listed contact point)

So, I am not too impressed.
I still have no idea if my two model entries are valid, since the necessary categories
don't seem to be listed in the category list.
I have no idea if they would like the offered Raffle or category prizes.

I didn't attend this event last year because I got no information,
I hope I don't change my mind about going.

Regardless, if anyone is thinking of attending this show, please let me know.
It would give me a definite reason to be there!

one more bump...

HeritageCon 7 this weekend!

Still preparing and planning to attend.
Hopefully might run into someone I know?
I've got a table full of models to present,
entering two models in the competition,
and selling a bunch of Model CDs at special prices.

If I have the time, I might even run off a couple of
printed kits.
Probably the City of Hamilton Mustang?  since this is the City of Hamilton show
and I am doing a (very) quick build of the RCAF City of Hamilton Squadron Mustang
to put on display next to the RCAF City of London 'stang.

Hopefully I will get the chance to walk around and snap some photos.
Its difficult since I am there by myself.
Wish me luck.

Good Luck with that.
There are no strangers in this world ...
Only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet

Nice Mustang!

I think you should go with a similar display for your table at the show. Maybe that would make paper modeling little bit ....  hmmm ....  sexier?
I don't know any nerdier hobby than ours, so anything will help! lol.

Enjoy the show!
Cheers,
