There will be a server update to ipmsusa3.org tonight at 8PM Eastern time - this will affect the Forums, the Gallery, and the Calendar/News/Member web sites.  It should only take 30 minutes or so.

Valued IPMS/USA Members:

It has been brought to our attention that a handful of copies of the last Journal (March/April V28J2) may be missing pages due to a printing error.

Please contact me directly at manager@ipmsusa.org if you are missing any pages from the last Journal so I can mail a replacement to you right away. Our printer has been notified and is working to find the cause and will provide us with credit for the journals we are replacing as well as the postage to mail them.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused if you are one of the few affected by this, but please allow me to correct this for you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your membership,

Marie Van SchoonhovenOffice...

We have begun a project that will hopefully become a useful tool for our members. We are compiling a list of hobby shops to incorporate into an online, graphic database (much like the one we now have for upcoming contests and shows) containing all the pertinent data for local hobby shops recommended by our MEMBERS. Ideally, this list will consist of more than just the locations of local Michaels or Hobby Town franchises and will provide members with info about what makes the store of interest to our hobby, hours of operation and a description of what the store carries. The goal is to create a new, updated database for members that can be accessed via any Internet device.

For this to work, we need you to “nominate” any hobby store in your area that you feel other IPMS/USA members...
