There are many moving parts to the contest, so we've created this header page to serve as a "launch pad" to the various things you'll want to know regarding the show... things like the actual rules of the contest, the categories, volunteering, forms, banquet options, and so forth.  And of course, if you have any questions not answered by the information here, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Contest Chairman Dennis Tennant and he'll be happy to help!

As part of our National Convention 50th Anniversary Celebration, IPMS Tidewater is honored to host our Social at the Virginia Air and Space CenterThe social will be held on Thursday Evening, August 7, 2014, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Our social this year is unique in that all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project.  Over the past 13 years, U.S. military personnel served our Nation in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of our military members made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom, while many others received life-altering wounds.  We would like to take this opportunity to honor these brave Americans and their sacrifices by donating to a program that helps our veterans and their families move forward with their lives. We believe this effort fits in nicely with the current IPMS program to furnish deployed military members with model kits for their off-duty time.   Registration for this event is $30.00 which will include a great BBQ dinner, iced tea and full run of the entire museum for the evening.  Additionally, if you wish to bring your kids to this exciting museum to take part in this event, there will be childrens' tickets available for only $15.00 for kids aged 4 to 12.

One-hundred percent of proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warriors Project . We hope you’ll come out with your friends and support this event, have a great time in a great museum, and help our wounded Service members in the process. If you have any questions regarding the program, they can be directed to Tom Jett .

Thank you for your consideration and support.
