Man, I wish you east coast guys can come out to this... have some real east/west throw downs. I'll take tons of pictures at the event, and hopefully it'll be big enough that some of you guys would be drawn out here next year - again, if we're successful enough this year, it'll definitely happen next year.

*bump*. This is still a few months away. I know of at least one East Coast builder that is coming out to cali for the event. Come...see disneylad in holiday mode, see the sun set along the ocean as opposed to rising out of it, and more importantly, come compete with fellow modelers at all different levels, win great raffle prizes, and check out some live technique demos presented by me and other modelers.

No restrictions on build materials or kits, no size restrictions, no huge convention cost to enter or attend! And you will have a fantastic time as i am frigging hilarious and fun to be around!

NOVEMBER 17, 2012!

November is creeping up, and this is three weeks away. Come out and let's have a little west coast vs east coast competition! Also, please help spread the word. The bigger the attendance, the greater the chance this happens the following year!

You keep saying that. :D Granted there was this fairly large weather thingy that happened.. but baring all that... hopefully we can get more East Coast participation!

The date is still tenative until we get confirmation that we have the venue.... so hopefully in a few days that will be solidified!

Heh, well the ultimate goal for the group is to create better modelers, inspire them and encourage them to move away from snapping and a panel line. True model building. It will also help when folks ask how they did and where they can improve.
