The AMPS Great White North Show is less than a month away! The show is taking place at the Ontario Regiment RCAC Tank Museum at Oshawa airport on May 30-31, 2014.
As anybody who has been to a show with an open judging system (either AMPS or something similar) knows, we need a lot of help to make the show happen. In particular, we need lots of people to pitch in with judging. To that end, we've added a form on our site where you can sign up for judging sessions:
If you do two judging shifts, you’ll get a spiffy AMPS – Great White North t-shirt that will make you the envy of your armour modelling friends!
For people in the Greater Toronto Area, AMPS – Great White North Chief Judge Paul Roberts will be running an AMPS judging clinic at Hornet Hobbies on Saturday, May 17th from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. Drop in to learn more about the AMPS judging system and participate in one of several judges’ training sessions that will be run throughout the day. More details can be found here: http://www.ampsgreatwhitenorth.com/Files/Show%20Documents/Flyers/Judges%20Clinic%20Flyer.pdf
I’d also like to remind you that pregistration is open. You can preregister your models (under the "register" tab) and find out more details about the show at the show's site: http://www.ampsgreatwhitenorth.com/. If you're planning to come to the show and enter, then preregistration helps both you (it will be quicker to get your models entered) and the show organizers (it helps us anticipate how many models are going to be at the show, how many judges we're going to need, etc.).
Plus – we’ll have real tanks running throughout the show! You’ll be able to see tanks and other military vehicles in action all day Saturday. On Friday, May 30 from noon until 5:00PM, for a $5.00 donation the museum will give you access to any equipment (unless it is in use at the time). You can climb all over and inside the vehicles and take as many pictures as you like.

I hope to see many of you in Oshawa!
