Annual Northwest Ohio Spring Contest

March 9, 2013

*  * *   New, Larger, More Convenient Venue!   * *  *
Ramada Toledo Conference Center
3536 Secor Road,
Toledo, OH 43606

The Toledo Plastic Modelers would like to thank everyone who attended the 2013 Tol-Con Event.   New for this year, we moved to the larger, and more conveniently located Ramada Conference Center.   From all accounts, this move worked out well.   It was easy to find, and everyone appeared to like the layout and the spacious rooms, but we acknowledge that the contest room lighting could have been a little better.   The ample vendor area was busy all day, and the vendors seemed happy too.   All in all, it was a good event to see old friends, and everybody had a good time.   Check back in the fall to see details for next year's show.
