2016 ACME Southern Nationals Report

Thanks to everyone who made our 20th anniversary Southern Nationals a huge success! 123 builders officially entered 610 models, there were a total of 643 models on display. The quality of builds was amazing as usual, the camaraderie among all the builders was enjoyed by all. Dr. Cranky and Ken Hamilton conducted a pair of very popular seminars. Our show next year moves to November 4, 2017, a week earlier than usual, due to the community center using the gym for Veterans Day 2017. Our themes for 2017 are “Asian Invasion”, any car built in Asia or by an Asian manufacturer, and “Bike Week”, any motorcycles. Our web theme will be announced separately.
