Last year, we had a great response from volunteers to judge at the 2016AMPS International Convention. Over 80 modelers offered their time to help judge. Again this year, I am looking for volunteers to participate as judges at the 2017 AMPS International Convention 20-22 April 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Danbury Hotel, Danbury, CT. It's no secret the AMPS judging system needs a large numbers of judges to evaluate the entries as the show is occurring. So, if you are visiting the convention for the first time or the twenty third, I personally invite you to “donate” some of your time to be a judge. Your experiences at judging models ranging from beginner to advanced skill level will make you a better modeler. You will also leave the convention with a highly coveted AMPS Crew T-shirt, suitable for creating jealousy among your modeling buddies.
This year, we are signing up judges through the AMPS web-site. This scheduling feature allows you to sign-up for the judging shifts you’d like by simply going to the show registration function at http://amps-armor.org/SiteShows/Registration/JudgesSignup.aspx
. A number of your fellow modelers have already used this feature to sign-up for a judging shift, but there are still plenty of spaces available. In the next couple of days we will be adding the ability to sign-up for Diorama and Vignette judging shifts. I encourage you to consider signing up for one of these shifts as they well help enhance your overall modeling skills.
This is a quick reminder that the 2017 International Convention pre-registration ends on 13 April 2017. You can use the following link to pre-register for our show: http://amps-armor.org/SiteShows/Registration/Intro.aspx
