One of Southern California's oldest ,and most consistent ,independent model building competitions it has withstood the test of time to give models a well lit venue to display their works with an open door judging contest and vendor swap meet in the same location. The 20th Anniversary Edition had eight clubs participation as well as a number of aficionados of our hobby from the surrounding area. 

Pasadena Modelers Society hosted the event, with Los Angeles Miniaturists and Southern California Area Historical Miniaturists Society sponsoring some awards and participation from The Southern California AMPS Chapter, IPMS Orange County, IPMS Antelope Valley, IPMS Ontario, IPMAS San Diego and members of IPMS from Petaluma in Northern California. A number of So. Cal ARCers were in attendance.
