SyrCon has been in existence for over thirty years as an annual local model contest. We feature many categories including many for Juniors, as we always promote the hobby to our junior modelers. We also have many special awards beyond the norm. For example, we have a "Best model by a Female" and the "Iron Man Award".
We normally have over 200 models at our contest, and over 80 participants. We also feature over 30 vendor tables and a large raffle table with over 100 items for contest-goers to win prizes.
Our club members prepare all year for the contest, drumming up support from external sources as well as ourselves. We take pride in the show and do our best on the day of the contest to represent our club in the best light. We hope that by doing this, we can build a sustainable modeling base in the area so that our hobby can thrive in the future.
