Notice: 2020 OrangeCon has been canceled

OrangeCon 2020 Update: After careful negotiations with the Hotel Fullerton Event management, who have just had to cancel all of their leased events for July due to the recent Covid-19 restrictions in place, it was determined to be in the best interest for IPMS Orange County to cancel OrangeCon for 2020. Considering the current and possible future restrictions mandated by Federal and State government, it would be impractical to put on a model show at this time.  Our contract with the hotel for OrangeCon has not been voided, but has been re-scheduled from the originally planned October 10, 2020 to October 2, 2021 with the terms and fees otherwise intact.   We hope for an excellent event next year!

A note from the IPMS-OC President

COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease and transmits through aerosol particles in the environment. At IPMS-OC, our main goal has always been to enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and also in following the “Stay at Home” recommendations of the state authorities, we’re cancelling the April 17th meeting. We hope that the May meeting will be safe to meet.
