2009 Chairman's Statement

Good morning everyone.
Here is a note/update I recieved from Bob Collignon, Chairman of the upcoming Noreastcon. (Yeah, I know it's in May, but it's still upcoming!!) It contains information of some of the cool stuff they have on tap for the show. We'll see the return of the Blind Build, which is a great event. If you missed the last one, you won't want to miss this one, it's one of the most fun events I've been a part of!! Don't miss it!!

Dear Modeling Friends and Families,

My name is Bob Collignon and I’m the Show Chairman of the IPMS Region I Convention, NOREASTCON 2009. I’m writing to tell everyone about the great show that we, IPMS Niagara Frontier, is planning that we really want YOU, your family and friends to attend! IPMS Niagara Frontier is hoping to see faces from our own Region 1 and from our good friends in Region 2 and 4 plus our great modeling buddies from the North-Oh Canada !!!

Our show includes some great guests and seminars, a “Make and Take” for our Junior modelers, a “Blind Build” team competition during Happy Hour on Friday (many of us remember the hilarity of our 2003 “Blind Build”), hourly raffles starting Friday, a packed vendor room, lots of room for models, great looking awards and a family style NOREASTCON banquet! Don’t miss it! We’ve added two additional special aspects of the show; a special “entrant only” raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Niagara Hobby and Craft Mart and, most important, we will have donation bins, for new kits, modeling supplies or cash, for our Service Men and Women in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Please go to our constantly updated web site at www.noreastcon2009.com . Lots of detailed info is on the web site including photos of the show location.

As all you experienced show planners surely know, a large model show needs lots of sponsorships and we still have some available. IPMS Niagara Frontier and the NOREASTCON 2009 show committee would appreciate all sponsorships that you and/or your club might be able to do! Sponsorship information is on the web site, as is a list of current Sponsors and available categories. A “hearty HUZZAH!!!” to all those clubs and individual members who have already sent us your generous sponsorship support!
Any questions please write me at cjltd@roadrunner.com or bobdave@bobdave.com or phone (d) 716-875-0234 or (n) 716-837-2204.

I hope to see lots of old friends and lots of soon to be friends at NOREASTCON 2009!

My Best Regards to All,
Bob Collignon , NOREASTCON 2009 Show Chairman,
IPMS Niagara Frontier, Chapter Contact

PS. don’t forget a new model or modeling supply for our troops. God bless them all!
