Looking Ahead to 2020

The 2019 Show was a success.

We will have another show in 2020.

We are having it at the same venue, the Drill Hall at the Major E.J.G. Holland VC Armoury, Walkley Road, Ottawa, ON

We are planning to have it September 27, 2020 but are waiting for confirmation that we have secured the venue. We will be having the contest in September when there is no IPMS Ottawa Capcon, but moving to October on the years that there is. (2021 would be in October, 2022 back to September, etc.)

We have our theme category determined for next year. Start building NOW!

Theme (1 Award)
FORD versus FERRARI.
Ford Racing Cars versus Ferrari Racing Cars.
Model shall be determined "racing" by having a "racing number" on it.

We will invest in signs, indicating where to park, additional parking, entrance and so on.

We will have worked out the "kinks" in our administrative processes.

We will have a better awards ceremony at the end of the event.

Any comments or suggestions? email us hobcen@rogers.com

The 2019 Event is in the Books!

Despite rainfall of biblical proportions a lot of folks attended the event and we consider it to be a success!
We love the new venue.
There were issues with parking, going forward we will address them and come up with alternate parking spots that we can publicize beforehand.
We will look at signs to make it easier to find the venue, and the actual drill hall where the contest is held.
Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Send them to Bill at hobcen@rogers.com

Big THANKS to:
The Modelers who entered,
The Folks that came out to see the show, 
The Vendors for making our Flea Market interesting,
The Sponsors for your support,
The Ottawa Model Car Group for the work that all the members contributed to make it a success.

There is a youtube posted HERE  to give everyone an idea of what it was like. 

Please check back, as soon as we can confirm a date for the 2020 event we will start promoting it.
