SCOTTCON 2017

"Presented by IPMS General Robert L. Scott and the Museum of Aviation"

Welcome


The General Robert L. Scott Chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS/USA) and the Museum of Aviation, will hold its annual scale model contest on Saturday, 10 June 2017. This year SCOTTCON 2017 is also the Region 3 Regional Contest and there will be two themes: the 70th Anniversary of the United States Air Force and the 50th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Camero.  The contest begins at 9:00 am with registration taking place between 9 am-12:30 pm.  Judging will be held from 12:30 pm-3:30 pm.  The event ends at 5:00 pm.


LOCATION


The contest will be held on the Museum of Aviation grounds among the aircraft exhibits in the "Century of Flight Hangar" .  The Location Tab above will link you to Google Maps which depicts the location.   It is centered on the "Century of Flight Hangar".  Use the zoom in/zoom out feature (+ and - buttons in bottom right corner of the map) to identify it.  You can also use the Location Tab to get driving directions.  Once the map is open, click  the "Get Directions" button in the left column, type in your beginning location, and It will compile driving directions for you.



FOOD AND DRINK


Food and drink are not allowed inside the Century of Flight hanger but there are picnic sites outside on the grounds.  Johnson Boys BBQ will have a food truck available on the grounds at lunchtime for your dining convenience.

UPDATE:  Mitch, who owns Johnson Boys BBQ, injured his arm severely over the weekend.  He will no longer be at SCOTTCON because he is currently in a cast and cannot operate his food truck or prepare food.  We wish  Mitch a speedy and healthy recovery. 


However, because of the short time until the contest, we cannot find any replacements.  That said, there are numerous restaurants near the museum.  Ask one of our staff om site and they'll be glad to offer a recommendation.



ENTRY FEES


Entry into the Museum of Aviation is free and the entire public is invited.  Entry fees apply only to the actual contestants participating in the contest.  There is no fee for those who wish to just view the models or purchase from vendors.


UPDATE:  Unfortunately, the cost of doing business has forced us to raise the entry fees for adults from $12 to $15 (from $10 to $13 for IPMS members).  Junior entry fees remain unchanged.  We apologize for any inconvenience.


Contest entry fees will be $15.00 for adults ($13.00 for current IPMS/USA members) for the first five models.  Subsequent  model entries will be $1.00 each. 


Contest entry fees for juniors (17 yrs and younger) is a $5.00 flat fee with no additional cost for entering multiple models.

 


PLAQUES AND RIBBONS


Trophies and Plaques are purchased.  Once they arrive, we will create a page for viewing them.
