It is with heavy hearts, much discussion and thought by our club, but we have decided to cancel “Winterfest” scale model contest which we have hosted for the last 9 years. Winterfest started small at the Veterans museum and memorial in Balboa Park. Later SSMB was offered a partnership with the San Diego Air and Space Museum Annex which was very beneficial to both organizations.
The members of SSMB have enjoyed running “Winterfest” over the years, but do to many key members moving away it is not feasible to run the contest as we have envisioned it.
We are regrouping and always looking for new members. It may take a little time, but we will be working to bring back “Winterfest” in the future and want to make it bigger and better.
A big Thank You to Tony Beres and the SDASM annex, all of the volunteer judges who have helped, and to our own club members.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, so we are postponing the meeting to next week (May 20th) so families can spend time together.
From all the members of our club we would like to say, thank you to all the people who attended this years Winterfest. It was great and we had a lot of positive comments about the show this year. We had a lot of new modelers showing great quality models.
I will have photos form the show up hopefully in the next coupe of weeks. Sorry about the delay, but I have been busy at work.
Here is a great video from Interstellar modeler.
