As of this morning we have 71 entrants with 251 models pre-registered with two days before pre-registration closes. Comparing these numbers with previous AMPS International Conventions and the number of hotel room nights booked I believe we are going to have a very big event.
It's no secret the AMPS judging system needs a large numbers of judges to evaluate the entries as the show is occurring. 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.
While signing up for judging shifts during the entire show is very important, I’m looking to fill the Thursday evening shift (20 April 2017, 6:00-8:00 PM) and all Friday shifts as soon as possible as we are expecting a large inflow of entries. Specifically, I need one runner and eight more judges to have six judging tables running for the Thursday night judging shift. In addition, I need a bunch of runners and judges to fill out the remaining shifts on Friday and Saturday. Please consider donating some of your time to be a judge or runner.
We are also looking for diorama/vignette judges for Friday and Saturday. If you’ve not judged these categories before, we’ll be offering a training session on 21 April 2017 at 8:00 AM location TBD.
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.
