A quick show update

I wanted to make sure that all potential attendees to the AMPS 2012 International Convention in Auburn Indiana had the latest information for the show. A recent change to the schedule is that we will accept all models, preregistered as well as walk-ins on Thursday night. Also, our Seminar Coordinator, Mr Sean Lynch, has put together a bonus seminar with noted modeler Adam Wilder on Thursday night.

I hope that you all can make this year’s AMPS Convention as it is looking to be an excellent show again this year.
