Gateway 2015

On September 10, 2016, IPMS-Gateway in St. Louis held their annual contest and swap meet. For the fourth year now, we were at our new facility, Holiday Inn-Route 66. The day had some rain off and on, but the temperature was fantastic. The facility was large and gracious. The contest room was filled with about 200 contest models from 50 contestants. The vendor room was packed all day. In spite of the large number of kits, judging appeared to go with barely a hiccough.

Twenty-six vendors were present to make sure that no one left with any cash in their pockets, but plenty of plastic to dream about building. A HUGE shout out to those vendors and sponsors that made this show a success!

Hope you enjoy the pics!
As usual, all pictures were taken by Doug Barton. Any complaints about quality are probably legit and entirely my fault.
