IPMS/USA Region 4 Convention - Two Days to Go!

Wed, 2018-04-25 19:02
The 2018 Region IV Convention on April 27-28 in Cleveland OH at Crawford Auto/Aviation Museum, hosted by the same folks who bring you the annual Cleveland Model Show, is coming fast and we have some updates to pass along: With only two days left, we're checking off the final tasks, done our final walk-through of the venue, and we're getting pretty excited about it! That being said, here are a few last-minute updates and reminders... FIRST, We've noticed some concern regarding area parking. SO, straight for the horse's mouth, so to speak: • The Museum Parking Lot (85+ spaces) is FREE PARKING for Friday and Saturday! We're paying for it! • The VA Hospital Parking Garage one block west of the museum is FREE PARKING for the event! • All Metered Street Parking in the area - including by the museum is FREE PARKING ON SATURDAY • See the Driving/Parking Directions page on our website for details SECOND, The event is an EASY 5-10 minute drive from I-90. The Driving/Parking Directions page on the website has a linked map for your convenience. THIRD, We will be having a "BUILD & BULL" on Friday afternoon at the museum. If you're coming in Friday, please DO bring something along to sand and whittle away at! Also, we have free seminars and a Make & Take for the kids all day Saturday! FINALLY, the block of discounted hotel rooms is gone and we are down to two tables left in our expanded vending area. With springtime weather finally making its way to the North Coast and a pretty darned cool venue to wander around in, we think this'll be a good-un! Hope some of you can make it! Cheers, Doug www.clevelandmodelshow.org
