IPMS Prison City Model Contest, 20 September

Well, it is finally here!  Our annual model show at the Heritage Center, 109 Delaware Street in Leavenworth is this Saturday, 20 September.  Doors open for registration at 9:00 a.m. and registration closes at 12:00.  Judging is from 12:00 to 2:45, and then the awards presentation is at 3:00 p.m.

We’ll have vendors, a raffle going throughout the day, and the Heritage Center is cooking food and pies for those who don’t want to leave for lunch.  The Heritage Center is located in downtown Leavenworth, and there are numerous restaurants within walking distance.  For those coming with a spouse, next door is the CW Parker Carousel Museum, and not one but TWO new sewing shops, opened within the last month on our main street.

There is a bicycle race beginning at 8:00 nearby and last year much of the parking directly across the street was full in the early morning but there are numerous other lots within a one block radius.  The bike racers are an early morning bunch, and the lots emptied out by 9:30.

Hope to see you all there.  Remember, this year’s special theme is the Great War.
