Six members of our club were in attendance for the contest.
Although none of us had entered a kit. We were able to take in a lot of good models on display as well as in the contest.
The overseas liaison for the UK nationals was Gary Wenko,an American living in England.
He proved to be invaluable in helping us enter and present our medals.
Our medals were a huge hit at the nationals,and were the talk of convention.
So successful were we,that we have talked with Gary about sponsoring this category for years to come.
Gary Barling from IPMS Canada was also onhand. He is also a member of IPMS Farnbourgh in England.Together with Gary,
