Hi All!

Don't forget, bids for the 2017 Regional are due to me by May 1. A couple clubs have expressed interest, but no bids have been sent in...

Congrats to IPMS/Fort Crook for hosting a great Regional this month. Great venue, vendors were good, and a great time was had by all. I'm looking forward to the 2017 National! By the way, I got a sneak peek at the 2017 Nat's theme artwork, be prepared to be awed!

Now is the time to start thinking about putting in a bid for the 2017 Regional Convention. I am setting a potential deadline of May 1 for bids, so start giving it some consideration and see if your club is interested. As you all know, the 2016 Regional will be held in Omaha this year on April 2, hosted by IPMS Fort Crook.

I did not receive one single nomination this year for Region 5 Chapter of the Year, Web Site of the Year, or Newsletter of the Year. So, there won't be one.

Two more Region 5 events this month, the FleaCon this Saturday in Monticello,Iowa and the SurgiCon on April 30 in Des Moines.

2017 Contest dates are filling up, please get your requests to me as early as possible for the best chance to get your desired date.

That's it for now, happy modeling everyone.
