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.
