30th annual Scale Model Show, contest planned

CROSSVILLE — The 30th annual Middle Tennessee Modelers Association's Scale Model Show and Contest will be Saturday, Feb. 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds, 1398 Livingston Rd., in the main exhibit building.

Everyone is invited to come and view the models on display. All types of models will be on display and there will be vendors with a wide variety of kits and supplies available. The Revell-Monogram Make 'N Take Event for the youth will be held. Concessions will be provided by Cumberland County 4-H Clubs.

Admission is free to the show. There is an entry fee for the contest (free to ages 15 and under). Cost is $6 for the first model entered and $1 for each additional model. Vendor tables will be available for $45.

The contest is strictly for static scale models constructed from unassembled — unfinished commercial plastic, resin or metal kits. Scratch-built models are welcome. Pre-assembled and pre-finished models, toys or replicas of any kind are not eligible for awards.

Teams of experienced judges will evaluate the entries for skill, accuracy and overall realism. Models should exuberate basic model building skills. They will award first, second and third place in each class. Additional recognition awards and special "best of" will be presented at their discretion.

There will be intermediate classes for youth ages 12-15 and junior classes for youth ages 11 and under. Other competition classes will include aircraft, military, auto and truck and miscellaneous.

    Every Wednesday after 1 p.m. from May through October, there is a steady stream of people converging on the kitchen of Heritage Hall on Church St. in Pleasant Hill with baskets and bags. Inside the kitchen there is excited chatter as they discuss the array of vegetables, some varieties never tried before. Farmer Dave Myers and his helpers provide this largesse of vitamins to the members of the CSA.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.
