Visitors already familiar with our website may have noticed our event calendar in the right column of the page. With this list evolving and with new events being added over time, here is a run-down of what IPMS Middleton Cheney will be getting up to in 2016.
So far, we have already made an appearance at Geek Con Banbury, the first sci-fi/comic/film fan event to be held in the town, giving us a great opportunity to reach out to local enthusiasts and potential new modellers, both young and old and grow the club’s membership.
Last week we also made our first appearance on the show circuit for the year when we displayed at the Poole Vikings club’s show. There we scooped the trophy for best visiting club display with the debut of our Star Trek theme.
Coming up, we will be returning to ModelKraft in Milton Keynes next week, and two weeks later we will make our debut at IPMS Gloucester’s show. Then, at the end of June, our annual ‘big one’ at the Bloxham Steam Rally where we’ll occupy a ludicrous amount of table space – it has to be seen to be believed!
Going into the second half of the year, we’re looking forward to making a first visit to another show, this time the Midland Expo in Birmingham, and then in August returning for a second time to IPMS Avon’s show in Thornbury.
In addition to these shows, we also have a number of other events in the pipeline that are awaiting confirmation. As and when we get the green light, the news will be up here immediately, so stay in touch!
We hope to see you around at one (or more!) of these shows over the year!
