The Upcoming Events page has been updated as well, with shows later in the year. If there’s something coming up that everyone in the club should know about, let us know and it’ll be added.

MosquitoCon 27 is now behind us. The initial counts place it in the top 3 attended events of the show’s history. Initial numbers are:
- 505 models entered
- 140 entrants
- 400+ walk-in attendees
Best of Show went to Joe Simon’s amazing Japanese cruiser Yahagi. More photos of this, the other winners, and of all the models entered to follow, as soon as we can get them processed and sorted.
We have a forecast of possible snow on Saturday morning. There’s little to no expected accumulation, though, and most of it should be gone by noon. The show will go on as scheduled.
