PostSubject: Model Car Sunday 2016   Wed 04 May 2016, 6:31 pm

Sunday May 1st, I went to Model Car Sunday at the Elks Lodge in Puyallup, Washington. The show was way smaller this year than in past years, rumor on the street is it will be that last time it is held. That's a shame the show is over 25 years old. Seems the club that has always hosted it is falling apart, no real leadership, it's a shame. Any way I meant up with Sam and Butcher Bob there. I know Bob isn't a member here, doesn't even own a computer, but he is a huge part of Northwest modeling and contributes here through me, so I included him in the post.

Between the 3 of us we won Nine awards, so I felt like the site did well at the show. Maybe just maybe it will help in picking up some new members along the way. here are the awards I won. I was really surprised to win the Rat Rod First place with "The Salt Dog". Not a class I normally enter into but the straight line class was very full so went that way. LOL Looks like I will do it again in the future. The win by the "Attempt One" was another pleasant surprise. The Straight Line Class had some very high quality builds in it. It was a totally unexpected win.  







here is a link to the photos from the show.

Congrats on the awards.  Seems like the same here in the Midwest.  Fewer show-goers and builders.  Still,  no reason we can't have a good time anyway! The hobby may be smaller, but it's still doing well enough.

Way to go Buck. Nice and deserving awards.

Too bad about the dwindling show. I have attended this in the past, and it was a great show to go to! Club leadership is a tough thing, and takes dedication.
