2016 Chapter of the Year Goes to the CoMMiES

The 2016 IPMS/USA Region 10 Chapter of the Year is the CoMMiES (Colorado Modeling Militia Enjoying SciFi) of Denver, CO. They submitted a thorough self-nomination statement that demonstrates their many efforts to promote IPMS/USA and the hobby of scale modeling. They may not have an encyclopedic website nor a newsletter but they make up for it with their numerous outreach activities and positive attitude. They meet twice a month in the Denver area and sponsor an annual show, CoMMiESFest. They have outreach displays and makeínítakes at several events each year including the WonderFest in Louisville, Kentucky (not exactly close to Denver) where they have had a presence for the past twelve years. Their emphasis on the FUN of modeling is a crucial part of retaining current member and recruiting new ones, and makes them deserving of the Region 10 COY award for 2016. Congratulations again!

2018 Region 10 Convention
- Since the National Convention will be in our region, we will not have an "official" Regional Convention in 2018. I welcome offers to host such an event in 2019. Thanks to Albuquerque for doing a great job in 2017.
