88 out of 87 vendors tables are sold.   Anchored by Lionheart Hobby (Kyle), Kings Hobby (Austin), Hill Country (SanAntonio), and Lone Star Models (Dallas, formerly Houston)

Promises to be a big time, first event since 2019

Loading up the family and heading down tomorrow!   Have not even left home yet and already stimulating the DFW economy with Six Flags tickets and Medival Times tickets!  Bringing 3 models to enter (2 ships and my Mace missile and Teracruzer) and a two year want list for the vendor room!

We have not held a SCALEFEST since 2019.   Today we were met by a lot of pent up demand.    I do not have the final numbers of entrants and model entries on the tables.   We had in excess of 90 individual entrants each with an average of 8 entries per.  By my cypherin' that makes 650 to 750 entries.    DHenning did well.   

Judging went well and was finished in a timely manner.    It can always be done more expeditiously.

The vendors seem to have left satisfied with their days efforts.    Several sold out early and left.

All in all a good time was had by all.   We'll be back next year.   Look for us the first weekend in June

Had a great time!   Looks like you might need a bigger venue if the number of models stays the same!   Tell the club members a big thank you!
