Just noticed that Mike, seems only Admin can read that article. Someone is editing it right now and I can't get in to see what's up. we'll get it fixed shortly, but really all that's on the article is in that post. there is nothing more.

Modelers Alliance Goes to Omaha 08 Aug 2011 22:00 #11

I set out for Omaha last Monday and after a short stint at the inlaws we arrived on Wednsday.  Thursday morning with registration completed the fun began.  The kids hit the make and take tables and I headed for the model room.  By the end of the day Friday nearly 2500 models had been placed and the competition was stiff.  I met up with Joe(Leopard2) and we had a short talk and on Saturday we talked to  Bob and Susan Letterman, but didn't get a picture.  I spent two days doing recon of the vendor rooms, which there were three, packed to the walls.  Waited until Saturday to do my buying and I am proud to say I didn't pay full price for anything.  It was lets make a deal time.  I will post pictures of my treasure in the near future.  I took a lot of pictures, but not of everything just too many models.  I will be posting my pictures in their proper forum soon.  Saturday evening we attended the awards dinner where many awards were given out one being to the Region 5 director my good friend Kelly Quirk.

We took the kids for their first formal dinner and had a great time.

But the best part was that my kids took top honors with their models.  My daughter Victoria took a first place for her Airbus model.

My son Curtis got a first place for his Star Trek Enterprise-E.

I managed a third place with my sherman walker.  The main thing is that we all had a great time and we are all looking forward to the next time we can attend the nationals.
