Coronavirus Update #2

May 6, 2020

Local & Regional Show Update

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, IPMS/USA urges all chapters to follow federal, state and local regulations regarding gatherings.  These regulations are constantly changing so please check before you schedule your show.

We also recommend you check with your show venues regarding cancellation policies.  While we all want to get back to our regular chapter meetings and shows, COVID-19 will be around longer than we want.  If a rescheduled show needs to be cancelled, be sure your chapter does not suffer any financial consequences 

Personally, I highly urge all members to wear a mask when going out.  It makes a big difference. Until testing is dramatically increased and a vaccine is available, anything we can all do will help decrease the spread of this virus 

Going forward, the following disclaimer needs to be added to all show flyers as well as your posting on the IPMS/USA event page:

"In light of the current pandemic situation, please be aware that neither IPMS/USA nor its Chapters are liable for any potential transmission of illnesses.  Those planning to attend this event should (a) follow existing safe social distancing recommendations and (b) abide by any local or state regulations regarding gatherings."

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I wish you, your family members and your fellow modelers safe passage through this pandemic.  Be well.  Happy modeling

Nats 2020 Gallery

Based on a member suggestion, we have created a page for members to submit images of their (planned) National Contest entries. This gives members an opportunity to show their hard work and creativity for models that would have been brought to San Marcos this year. You'll find the posting information in the Forums. You may submit images and info for any intended 2020 entry. This gallery is for display purposes only, no judging will take place.
