Welcome to Chattanooga Scale Modelers
The Chattanooga Scale Modelers are a group of "slightly off" modelers based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Hosts of the 2019 IPMS Nationals and the annual Chattanooga ModelCon.
Unfortunately, the continuing Covid-19 Pandemic has led us to the difficult decision to cancel ModelCon 2021. Following is the "Press Release" we sent out this week:
Like you, we have watched with concern the increase of COVID-19 cases in Chattanooga, Hamilton County and indeed the US. We’ve witnessed some of our friends and neighbors suffer with this disease.
Our show in January is normally the highlight of our modeling year as we get to see old friends and new models. However, many of our regular attendees from out of town as well as a significant number of our own members have already indicated they will not attend due to personal risk factors and we fully respect their decision. In light of these the facts we have made the difficult decision to cancel our show for 2021.
We know this will disappoint many, and while we were looking forward to seeing everyone, we’d rather lose the show for a year than lose any of our friends forever.
As talks of vaccines increase, we look forward to the day when we can once again host our show in a safe setting. Until then, Stay Safe!
We are indeed very sorry to make this decision. It was both not easy and easy to do. We are however very hopeful the vaccines that are being approved will make 2021 a very different year from 2020, and we'll gradually be able to return to a much more normal way of life. We really hope that means that model shows will return to the calendar, and we can return and make ModelCon 2022 the biggest and best ever!
