Coronavirus UpdateSubmitted by David Lockhart on Thu, 03/19/2020 - 19:41
To all fellow modelers,
As the current COVID-19 pandemic continues (it hasn't peaked yet), we request that you follow state & local requests to not meet in any groups and to self quarantine if possible. This means no monthly meetings or shows. With limited testing available and no vaccines, it's not worth the risk. Between smart phones, email, Facebook, etc., you should be able to stay in contact with your fellow modelers.
Check with your contest chairmen or the event page on the IPMS/USA website before you get in your car!
Dust off your stash and build some models. As the country music artist Gary Allan sings, "Every storm runs out of rain".
Stay healthy & safe. Happy modeling
Director of Local Chapters
