The 2013 IPMS nationals is fast approaching. This year it will be held in Loveland Colorado. Now there are two cities in the state that have that name. This will be held in what we call North Loveland.
If you ever go to a national contest take full advantage of the modern method of contest registry. You can even download the entry forms for your individual build and the master sheet so that you can be ready to go when you walk into the front doors of the contest venue. There are workshops you can attend and organized tours you can take. Though this year's tours commitee fogot the JeffCo. Airport Flyin was omitted for some reason. Its only the biggest airshow held annually in the Denver metro area.
The last nationals I entered was in 2003. So I'll have a few entries this year. There will be lots of activities and in the end you will wish you had more time to spend. There is one note you should be concerned about. Remember you willl be at a higher altitude here. The air is thinner. So if you have a morning walk or workout regiment pace yourself. Here it takes more to get the oxygen you are used to.
