    I think it is very unlikely there will be any model shows anywhere in the UK this year, not sure if anyone will be comfortable with the close proximity it entails and the age of the participants.

    Here's an odd thing. The dreadful situation we have found ourselves in has had a somewhat weird effect for me.
    I was in the habit of attending and competing at 3 or 4 big shows every year, consequently I was painting figures to compete.
    This had taken away a lot of the fun from the hobby and the painting process had become a bit of a chore.
    The cancellation of shows has allowed me to 're-engage with the enjoyment that first brought me into the hobby by removing what had become a self induced pressure.
    My production rate has increased, I'm thoroughly enjoying making a dent in my grey army and painting simply for the fun of it.
    That being said I can't wait for the shows to start again....... Munich and Venice would be good ;)

    Who changed the title on this thread? I'm fairly certain when I created it back in 2019, I didn't call it "Cancelled shows due to covid 19 virus".

    Ah, OK, looks like an admin compiled all the cancellation posts into our show thread.

    Since it's a general thread for show status, has anyone heard whether the Long Island Historical Miniatures Society is holding their show (viz, the "Long Island Show") or not? I haven't been able to get a reply about it from the club.

    Prost!

    OK, I've heard through contacts that the Long Island show has been canceled, too.

    Prost!
