About the Event...

The Roanoke Valley IPMS Convention Committee is proud to announce the return of the IPMS Region 2 Convention to the Salem Civic Center, June 18-19, 2021.  This year's theme, "Eyes on the Prize", salutes all of the keen-eyed (20/20) model-makers in Region 2, as well as super model-builders from other regions and model clubs.  Bring your styrene works of art to the Salem Civic Center for 2 full days of modeling fun, friendship and focus on all things model related.  Vendors from all over Region 2 as well as local sellers will fill the Salem Civic Center with wares to excite novice model-malers as well as seasoned pros alike.  Seminars, "how-to" displays, club entries and manufacturer's demos will highlight the show.  Over 90 categories will allow modelers to compete in almost every known genre, i.e. aircraft, armor, automotive, space and sci-fi, figures, dioramas, miscellaneous and junior categories will fill the display tables.  Special awards will be awarded to the "Best Of" category as well as specialty awards for individual achievement as well as clubs competing for the highly-coveted, Virginia Shoot-Out Award, presented to the club who wins the most combined points.  IPMS Tidewater currently holds the Shoot-Out Award.  I'm sure past winners like Roanoke Valley, Richmond, NOVA, CenPenn and the other chapters in Region 2 will have something to say about that, not to mention clubs from other Regions.  We are hoping to set all new records on attendance and registration.  Attendees will be able to enjoy two full days of shopping, seminars, comrarderie, and fellowship. A dessert banquet and cash bar on Saturday evening will allow modelers and their "better-halves" to satisfy their "sweet-tooth" and enjoy themselves while the awards are presented in a video tribute to the deserving modelers.  We look forward to seeing all of our friends in Region 2 as well as visitors from all over the US.  Come join us for a fun time for all!!! (thanks to all of your patience as we navigate the choppy waters of the Covid-19 pandemic--hopefully this will be a thing of the past by the time we hold our show)
