The Hawkeye Modelers are having a show to celebrate the club's 50th Anniversary.
We plan to have awards that are called Celebrating the Decades, each one for the best model representing one of 5 decades ( 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, and 2010s), for which the item depicted was in service, built, or used in (not the model in of itself). These awards will be determined by participant voting, each participant getting a form at model registration, and will need to choose the model they think best fits each decade. (Models are limited to one decade, so please choose the best one if it covered more than one decade of service)
There will be juried awards, for the following: Best of Show, Theme - BEST OF '69, and Best of Category Awards (Aircraft, Military Vehicles, Automotive, Science Fiction, Real Space, Ships, Figures, Juniors, Diorama, and Miscellaneous)
Registration opens at 9 AM, and closes at Noon. Awards presentation "planned" for 3 PM.
Contest entry fee will be $10 for each participant, limited to 5 models that can be entered.
We plan to have Vendors, and a Raffle.
