A brief update to our upcoming AMPS Atlanta show this February 15-17, 2019.
1) A reminder that we are changing up the awards schedule this year. Our awards ceremony will be at 6 PM on Saturday evening February 16 instead of 11 AM Sunday. The show will continue Sunday morning with vendors still selling their wares and plenty of exhibits on display. The figure club awards will go at 12 PM on Sunday, as always.
2) We have organized tour of the armor collection at Fort Benning again this year. It will be on Friday morning, February 15. This is always popular and well attended. There is a nominal fee of $10 for the tour/visit. Be sure to bring valid ID for entry to the base. We typically meet at the National Infantry Museum and the group proceeds from there, with escort from valid military ID holders to facilitate entry to the base.
3) We will be offering a seminar this year on creating soft stowage for your armored vehicles. This will include making stowage from epoxy putty vs. older methods, strapping and tying, and methods for making realistic tie downs for your armored vehicles. Stay tuned for more details. We may also have an update on the status of the armor collection and related topics.
