For the past 12 years CASM has held a contest for all local and regional modelers to come and compete for trophies and medals. This year, we are holding our 13th Annual Sproo-Doo Model Show at Arkansas Health Center in Benton, AR on September 21st. We are using the GSB (Gold, Silver, Bronze) judging style where each entry is judged based on its own merit. It is possible for every entry to receive a medal based on an honest appraisal of each model's quality. For those of you who enjoy head-to-head competition, there are a number of modeling categories that receive a handsome "Best of" award in which the Gold Medal models compete against one another. There can be only one! Contestants are also competing for a few special awards including Best of Division, Herman Hankin’s People’s Choice award, Best of Show Civilian, Best of Show Military, and many others. There is always a lot of good fun and fellowship at our contests and the Arkansas Health Center is a beautiful location with a well-lit exhibition hall that really showcases your models. So get building and we are looking forward to your attendance. For more information, click the picture.
The Scratching Post
The Scratching Post is the newsletter for the Central Arkansas Scale Modelers, the Black Cats, and is written by modelers to promote and expand the modeling hobby. Our goal is to develop an e-zine in which modeling activities in the central Arkansas area are shared but, also, topics germane to the modeling hobby are discussed. We have selected a blog format so that the publication is interactive and can be accessed daily. We desire contributions from modelers all over the world so we can cover topics that are often not covered in other publications. Most of all, we would like the blog to be informative and fun! Please post comments and submit articles for our publication.
