Attendees of AMPS 2012,
The Armor Modeling and Preservation Society needs your help to set up the convention site for the International Convention that will start at 6:00pm on Thursday, 26 April. In order to get all of the pieces, parts, tables and chairs in the right place, I will need about 25-30 early arriving show attendees to donate some time and muscle power to set up tables, chairs, and the rest of the equipment to get the Show ready for prime time.

Here is the info:
Location: National Military History Center/ World War II Victory Museum
5634 CR 11-A, Auburn, Indiana 46706, (260) 927-9144

Directions: Exit 126 off Interstate 69, then turn west on County Road 11-A for approximately 1 km - turn right onto the second driveway on the north side to the museum.

Time: Approximately 8:30AM until we are done

Equipment needed: none, although work clothes and possibly gloves are probably in order. If you are a longtime AMPS member, Mr. Mark Corbett, the AMPS Secretary, threw down the gauntlet to see who has the oldest AMPS show t-shirt in wearable shape. No prizes as of now, just bragging rights.

Note: If you cant be there early, please stop by and see if you can lend a hand. I would also like to be able to offer assistance in helping our vendors get their wares moved into the vendor tables, which starts at 1:00PM.

We will periodically asking for assistance throughout the show for assistance in judging, running models and other administrative tasks, so if you cant make it in on Thursday, then you can volunteer during and after the show as Saturday night before the beverages flow and the stories are told, we need to tear it all back down

I hope to see you all on Thursday. 11 days left until the biggest Armor only model show in the Western Hemisphere

John,
We're scheduled to get there late in the afternoon, but Neil, Horst and I will be there to help in whatever way we can. I've already e-mailed w/Pete G about ACJ'ing a couple of shifts, plus I'll judge, run, tally, sweep up, etc for whatever you guys need. Lookin' forward to seeing the horde (exactly how many hordes in a host?) of yous in a little over a week.
Regards,

We'll be there late afternoon/early evening and will drop by to lend a hand with whatever still needs doing.

During the show, we'll judge, ACJ, present seminars on Russian armor, duct-tape Stansell to the ceiling and any other task that requires our peculiar skills.

It's gonna be a good couple days, tater...

Neil,

The combination of those two "combustibles" in the same sentence I beleive to be banned by the Geneva Convention...but I am not sure that Pat has ever been to Geneva...but he has stayed at a Holiday Inn during a Convention...

Nine and a wake-up...as we used to say, GENTS, we are so short we can high-dive off a dime!!!

Semper Fi,
Pat

To be duct-taped anywhere by Gerog and Neil... squeal!!!

BTW, I love the new name, Gerog! It's so much cooler than just plain ol' Georg... It's sort of Transformer-esque, don't you think?

I might suggest a hyphen, though. Something like "Ge-rog," to prevent mispronunciation.

...I realized I spelled it wrong. It's actually Gee-rog, which is his rapper name.

Maybe an apostrophe, like this: G'rog.

Keep him separated from that rapper dude.
