    [B]Its official. [/B]

    We are pleased to announce the 2009 Scale Motor Cars Invitational.

    The Glenmoor Gathering Concourse D' Elegance will be the location for our first physical model event. Applications to display your model are now available through the link above and will be accepted until the end of August.

    If your model is chosen you'll receive a display place under the SMC tent and 4 tickets to attend the Glenmoor Gathering. You may also attend all G.G. events included with normal admission.

    This years event will be strictly for fun. A snap kit build off is planned for the kids and we're working on several workshops during the show. We have room for 2 more and if you would like to host a workshop you may contact me for more information.

    The event is open to all large scale models with an emphasis on Pocher and scratch built Scale Motor Cars Invitational 2009 modeling. No awards to be given this year but you will be able to glimpse the 2010 trophy.

    More details to follow.

    I'm definitely thinking about this one. It's not far from me at all. If I put anything in, it would be the 1/12 scale Cord if that would be acceptable.

    This is a fantastic car show, I have been to it numerous times and in fact my 1962 E-type took Best in Class one year for Foreign car class. With out a doubt this show is a very high quality show on the level with Peeble Beach.

    Can "works in progress" be entered? I doubt I will have my T Racer done by then but I will be there for sure.

    TGG is only a couple of hours from my place in Columbus. I'd like to apply to bring The Satin Doll.

    Ill have some better numbers for you shortly as to participants and number of models.

    Just a quick breakdown, there's about 20 models scheduled to attend so far. All large scale and in a wide variety. Everything from single motor builds all the way up to Kens Model T and functional steam and gas models.

    We'll have several top builders on hand and the Kids build-off is still a go.

    Starting in about a week we'll be sending out all the required info to help you plan you visit.



    Space is still available and we're going to keep the application up for as long as possible so if your anywhere near the event or would like to ship your model and have us display if you, then please send in your application today.

    Administrator, now that the entries have been cut off and finalized what will be the schedule for the tickets and entering the event. I know that Glenmoor is a gated community so upon arrival do we inform someone that we are exhibitors and we will then be directed to the SMC area? I know there is a ton of planning going into this event and I certainly appreciate all the work that SMC has put forth but the event is fast approaching and having entered similar events in the past I know that communication can be a sticking point. If the information is in the works then my apologies for rushing things.
    Thanks,
    George

    George you beat me to it.

    Yesterday was actually our cut off for finalizing the details.

    Below you'll find event details. Local hotels, directions, event times, and event map. I'll be emailing this info to all the entrants as well.

    IMPORTANT!!!

    Registered participants of the SMC Invitational need to set up Saturday before 3:30pm. If you are not arriving until Sunday, you need to be at Glenmoor by 8:00 and in before 8:30. Its highly recommended to drop off your model on Saturday.

    Please remember that security is very tight at this show and everyone will need to check into the guardhouse upon arrival to be admitted. No one will be admitted who is not on the list.

    Arrangements have been made to secure the model inside Saturday night.
