AMPS International Convention 2009, last one at Aberdeen
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: AMPS International Convention 2009, last one at Aberdeen

That’s right, only 58 days until the show as of February 17. This is a reminder to everyone to plan on attending the 2009 AMPS International Show (April 17-18) in Havre De Grace, MD. Head on over to the AMPS website show registration page (http://www.amps-armor.org/ampssite/conventions/showReg.aspx?ShowID=24) and pre-register. Pre-registration (and/or volunteering to be a judge) will allow you enter your models on Thursday night. On Friday and Saturday there will be a special line for pre-registrants to receive their admission badge, after which you can walk right to the pass-through table and hand off your model. No waiting in line is required.

Remember, you only have until March 15 to pre-register.

All current members of AMPS will receive a discount on the price for entry into the show. If your membership is about to expire, please renew your membership. If you haven’t yet joined AMPS, what better time than now to take advantage of the reduced entry price to the show as well discounts from participating vendors as well as receiving Boresight 6 times per year.
