On-line pre-registration is open at the AMPS site and is a great way to save time by getting the paperwork out of the way. You can also sign up for the 2 scheduled tours set for Wednesday and Thursday when you pre-register for the show. Visit the AMPS website (amps-armor.org)for more seminar and show details.

More show updates to follow soon. So, lets get those entries finished up and ready for transporation as we have less than 2 months before Show time.
