ANNOUNCING SMC 2021!
We hope that all of you are still safe and sound.
We are excited to announce that the 14th Scale Model Challenge will take place on October 16 and 17 2021!
Weren’t we supposed to have a World Model Expo instead?
Well, yes that was the plan, but, given the current state of affairs concerning the Covid-19 pandemic, the chances of being able to hold a smaller event in October is much more realistic than having an large event like the World Model Expo in July next year.
Of course we talk about a show like WME, or SMC, in the way we intend it to be: without mandatory social distancing & face masks, and with the possibility of international (air)travel, and with handshakes, hugs and having a beer or two with good friends.
But why an SMC and not a WME? The WME is too big an event to be held in October in the current venue. A WME requires (substantially) more space for e.g. the catering areas and the contest than would be needed for a Scale Model Challenge. Also, as a consequence, part of the catering area at the WME, as well as several additional events were anticipated outdoors. And although the outside area would be sheltered, our climate is such that being outdoors in October, unlike in July, can be a bit of a challenge, to say the least.
The WME will be postponed to 1-2-3 July 2022. For more info, please go to the WME2022 website
By offering you an SMC in 2021 we hope to bring the community back together again. We have all been seperated for too long.
Now let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can have an all new SMC in 2021 and we hope to see all of you again in October 2021.
More information for visitors, clubs, and vendors, details about the contest, workshops and more will be published in the first quarter of 2021.
SMC 2021 Saturday 16th, and Sunday 17th October 2021
Be there and make the difference!
