Build Meet, Annual General Meeting and modeling contest of IPMS-Kebnekaise
July 19, 2016 in Show Reports
Kebnekaise, situated north of the Polar Circle, is the highest mountain in Sweden. (2097 m above sea level.)
It is a sign of the popularity and worldwide spread of our hobby, that there is an IPMS club even in this remote place.
On the 14. this month the Annual Buildmeet, the Annual General Meeting, and the contest Kebnekaise-OPEN were held.
Getting to the meeting by way of the western route includes some 1800 meters of ascent, but of course no serious modeler is held back by such trivialities.
Having reached the summit, the build meet was immediately commenced. To ensure that there was no cheating, the unopened packages of the kits were photographed.
Once the models were finished, the Annual General Meeting commenced.
