AMPS National Event Dayton OH May 5, 2018

AMPS Lost Children had a presence at the AMPS Nationals.  Joe S, Justen H, Bernie B. and Frank B. made the six hour trip to Dayton.  Joe, Frank and Bernie entered a total of 19 pieces and came home with four Golds, four Silvers and one Bronze metals.  You can see the results here.  There were over 700 military model entries for the three day show.  There was a huge raffle and many seminars.  The next National Event will be right here in our home town of Buffalo NY May of 2019.  I encourage everyone to attend.  The national organization has a website up and running for preregistration starting the middle of May 2018. http://www.amps-armor.org/SiteMain/Main.aspx
