Yes the Phoenix bunch will be hosting THE FINAL NATS ever! See they are
way overbudget, completely underfunded, and undersponsored. They will
cause the IPMS to become so far into the red, that it will have to
close its doors!
now I am sitting here pondering whether it is worth my time to show up.
I know if I show up, many more will come, andmy appearance will single
handedly save the event, but is it worth my time?
I would bring the Crashed Airliner, the mcDonalds Dragster, and the
TURD (of course it would be inside a box, and you would need be over 21
and pay me $10 to view it, and the awards these models have
won.........but should I?
Let me know
Whether true or not....IPMS has *never* learned how to finance
their own shows. They should take a lesson from the "figure world".
Each year, the Chicago Show holds an auction, where finished pieces
(donated by some of the best artists in the world) are auctioned off
to the highest bidder. The proceeds go to paying for future events.
At each auction, the Chicago club takes in "a five digit figure", just
from this one to two hour event alone. And that is just one of many ways
they raise funds. Most of the other figure clubs do similar things.
And "William H. Shuey" opened up and revealed to
He's got an AWFUL high opinion of himself. I'll give him that much.
Live Long and Prosper
