2018 Southeastern Model Show
Perry, GA        March 2-3, 2018

"I think it was better this year than last".....................is a sentence I've heard uttered more than twice after this past week-end's Perry, GA GAMA Southeastern Hobby Show.

Our sincere "thanks" to our Officers and the members that spent so much of their valuable weekend time behind the SPA tables, meeting, greeting, and telling the SPA story to the numerous visitors to our SPA tables there.

Here's a shot of Vic Koening behind the tables on Friday afternoon. He was telling of his visit with some earlier guests to President Jeff Owens.


Jeff brought his 2S powered Deception model which he displayed for visitors to see and ask questions about.

Visitors to the show were alerted to the SPA booth by the Jim Ivey inspired banner shown here:

Jim and Bobbie Johns along with the early arrivals hoisted the huge banner.

Just adjacent was the EAST-WEST SHOOTOUT Flyer posted by CD Scott Anderson:

Lots of questions were answered regarding this event as well as the regulars in both the EAST and WEST divisions.Here's Bob Wilkes, Duane Wilson and Bill Collins in front of Duane's beautiful BLUE ANGEL model on display:

Wish I had photos of all who participated in "telling the SPA story" in Perry.....but, your reporter is guilty of getting engaged in conversation with numbers of modeling friends and making of new ones in that wonderful environment.

As has been the case annually, this event has been, and was again this season, the "catapult" into an active and most enjoyable year participating in the "most wonderful and rewarding hobby/sport" in existence. Best wishes to all for "nothing but success" throughout the SPA world.!
