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.

February Newsletter and Meeting Info

There have been several questions regarding the meeting this month. It is indeed going on this evening, Friday the 14th. As it’s Valentine’s Day, turnout is expected to be a bit lower than usual, but the hard-core crowd will be there, showing their love for model making.

This month’s newsletter has also been uploaded to the Newsletter page. Check it out for information on MosquitoCon trophy sponsorship packages, as well as requests for judges and new kit donations. Also, our faithful contest coordinator Jon is asking for sponsors for monthly meeting themes this year.
