The title should read: Who is going to the AMPS Internation Convention in Sumter, SC USA??

First, let me start with a Public Service Announcement: You have 75 days to start or finish up those builds as the AMPS 2016 International Convention will open at 2:00 EST on 7 April+ at the Sumter Convention Center.

Second, who is going to be in attendance this year and where are you coming from??

I will be making the drive from Oklahoma City to Sumter, some 16 to 18 hours, with an overnight at parent's home in eastern Tennessee ETA: Afternoon, Thursday, 7 April

Having just moved in to a new home, I may be slowed a bit in the attempt to attend. I am however registered to the IPMS Nationals in Columbia come fall.

I'll be there with a contingent from central PA. Last year at Auburn was my first since they outgrew their original venue in MD.

Thanks for the PSA John ! While I won't enter anything I'm itching for a GOOD roadtrip ! I really enjoyed my trip of a couple of years ago to Charleston & Savannah. I never really explored the rest of SC. A LOT of good food & drink goes on in that part of the US !
Now, if we don't get one of those Spring snowstorms.....

Would love to catch up with y'all, but our Canadian peso rules out this year! Hoping to get down there for 2017. Maybe our Trudeau bucks will be worth more by then...HA!
