Important Notice about  the Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Model Classic 2020

Dear Members, Vendors, Exhibitors, Sponsors, Friends, and Families;

The Northern Virginia Modelers (NoVA) Executive Board (E-Board) regrets to inform you that we have decided to cancel Model Classic 2020 (previously scheduled to be held on April 18, 2020) due to the current situation with the COVID-19 novel coronavirus.  

Please be assured this action is not being taken lightly.  The NoVA E-Board realizes that the commitment made by all concerned for a successful Model Classic is substantial and we appreciate the impact of cancellation to all parties.  However, after assessing available information, weighing options, and careful deliberations, we find it in the best interests of our members, vendors, exhibitors, sponsors, friends, and families to cancel Model Classic 2020 and concentrate on making Model Classic 2021 a resounding success.  As soon as a date for Model Classic 2021 is established, we will let you know.

The NoVA E-Board considered rescheduling Model Classic 2020.  However, the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and the uncertainty of the duration of the situation, combined with the realities of the current, and fluid, International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS) Region 2 show schedule, preclude any dates that would not interfere with our planning cycle for Model Classic 2021.

NoVA intends to refund all vendor table fees and Trophy Package Sponsorships already submitted for Model Classic 2020.  If you have already paid for tables or Trophy Packages, please watch your mail for a check from our Treasurer, Tim Barb.

The NoVA E-Board apologizes for any inconvenience that this decision causes you.  We wrestled with this decision with little or no precedent to guide our deliberations.  However, we are confident that cancelling Model Classic 2020 is the correct decision and in the best interest of everyone involved.

As always, you can reach our Chapter Contact, Tom Henderson, at, our Treasurer, Tim Barb at, or me at for questions or concerns.

We wish all of you and your families good health in this trying time and we look forward to seeing you at Model Classic 2021.
