12th Annual Model Contest and Vendor Fair
TigerCon is held each year in early November. Centrally located in Columbia, modelers from all parts of Region14 attend this local contest and vendor fair.
TigerCon is open to all modelers. You do not need to be an IPMS member to enter. TigerCon awards 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each model category, with judging following the IPMS rules and "no sweeps" per category. There are five additional awards for "Best in Class" (figures, cars, etc.), which are topped off with trophies for "Best of Show" and "People's Choice". Each year an optional theme is chosen with its own "Theme Champion" award. Check the web site for this year's theme.
Throughout the event an ongoing raffle will award kits to attendees. For the kids, there is a free Make-n-Take booth. The popular Non-Competition table (presentation only) will again be available. The facility is handicap accessible.
The event also features a growing number of vendors, so in addition to winning awards, you can stock up for your Winter modeling projects!
The 12th annual TigerCon will start at 9:00am and end approximately 4:30pm on Saturday November 4th, 2023.
