Each of these was in turn further subdivided into 80 individual subcategories. The number of subcategories varied from category to category but for each a first, second or third prize award was available.
Models were displayed on tables, by categories, in one large room while a second room provided a venue for numerous tables for vendors selling almost anything and everything pertaining to the hobby. Judging took place during the afternoon of the second day and a reception/banquet was held later that evening with the awards ceremony following.
