MosquitoCon 29 UPDATE

This has been added to the main MosquitoCon 29 page as well:


As of now, we are on track to hold MosquitoCon 29 on Saturday July 31, 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be following state and venue guidelines the day of the show.

A few things to note (everything is subject to change):
– Wearing of masks inside the venue is mandatory – NO EXCEPTIONS.
– Each entrant may enter UP TO 12 models in total
– Each entrant may enter UP TO 3 models per category (12 max – see above).
– Door are scheduled to open at 9am for CONTEST ENTRANTS ONLY.
– Doors will open at 10am for non-entrants. This means no access to the contest OR vendor rooms for non-entrants until 10am. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We are hoping that, as restrictions ease and things open up, we will be able to a pretty much “normal” show, but keep checking back here, or on our Facebook page, for updates, as everything is subject to change.
Look forward to seeing everyone again!

MosquitoCon Rescheduled to July 31st, 2021

Due to the ongoing pandemic, New Jersey IPMS has rescheduled MosquitoCon to July 31st of 2021. There’s no indication that there will be a reduction in the severity of the pandemic before our regular show date in early April, and there is little chance that vaccinations will be wide-spread enough at that point.

Thank you to everyone for understanding. We want to get back to the usual show schedule as much as everyone else, and to do it safely.

MosquitoCon 29 Rescheduled to April 10th, 2021

From Big Bill Schwarz, President NJIPMS, the e-board and members of New Jersey IPMS:
We wish all of our long time vendors, contestants and walk in show goer’s to know that because of current situations due to COVID-19, we are not allowed to have our show in August!!
Therefore, we’ve made the decision to go ahead and move the show months in the future to what would be our regular show date of April 10, 2021 – same time and same place. A lot if not all of our vendors are hopping on the train with us so we are simply rolling the show over intact. I will be emailing and corresponding with our long time vendors and friends to make all aware. A lot have already committed. With more shows cancelling every day its in best for all involved that we do it this way. We as a club will put absolutely no one at risk at ant time or place !! We also know this is a very well liked and attended show !!
We will see what happens in the coming months and the club and e-board wish to apologize that we couldn’t make it happen. We have gotten through blizzards and have overcome many obstacles over the last 30 years, but this is quite different!
At this time I would again like to thank each and every modeller,shopper,vendor and lookers that have made MOSQUITOCON what it is and we look very forward to seeing you all in the not to distant future!!
Until then , build models , stay safe and well, live long and mostly enjoy every day !!!
SEE YOU ALL SOON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Regards , Big Bill Schwarz President , The Executive Board and the Membership of NJIPMS

MosquitoCon Rescheduled! August 22nd, 2020!

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, including but not limited to reasons of state, and possibly soon national, bans on events with large groups, we have rescheduled MosquitoCon 29 to August 22nd, 2020.

From President Bill Schwarz:

“To the membership: Due to the virus, MosquitoCon 29 is rescheduled to 22 August 2020. Same place, same time. There are no other shows in conflict, and we have cleared matters with all parties involved. Also, it is unclear if we will have meetings over the next 2 or 3 months, but we will let everyone know as soon as we do. I want you all to be safe and take precautions, to put all of this crap behind us as fast as possible. Remember one last thing: this eboard is on top of everything, all the time. We run the club and run it well. You all are in capable hands! Things will be back in balance soon. All of you take care and watch for emails, Facebook posts, and website updates. Thanks for your time.

– Big Bill, Vince, Mike, Joe, Dan and Devin, your NJIPMS Eboard. ”

MosquitoCon 29. August 22nd. Different Date. Same place. Same time. Better Weather.

Update on MosquitoCon 29: Is it still on?

Over the next week, we will be discussing whether to continue with MosquitoCon 29, and evaluating the possibilities of a postponement. The status of the Covid-19 virus in New Jersey is being watched closely, and we will continue to monitor the situation. We will announce here and to our Facebook page immediately upon deciding the best and safest course of action. Thank you all for your understanding.
