MFCA show - additional info/who is coming?

Discussion in 'Figure Shows, Workshops and Events' started by Wendy, Apr 5, 2012.

    This year MFCA organizer are really making an effort to give more emphasis to the fantasy side of the hobby. Instead of an overall Best of Show award, there will be a Best of Fantasy award, in addition to a Best of Historical and Best of Ordinance.

    In addition to the new Best of Fantasy award, according to the show organizers, the following painters and sculptors are slated to attend (nick names on CMON in parentheses): Adrian Bay (vincenti), Mohamed Ait-Mehdi (Mohand), Alfonso Giraldes (Banshee), Kostas Kariotelis (his pieces are so cool and imaginative!), and Michael Konkaros and Chris Panagiotou who won Best of Fantasy at World Expo this past August (pics can be found here).
    I can't wait! Well, I can because I have stuff to finish still, but you get the idea. [IMG]

    Also, the show rate at the Radisson is $129 booking by April 16 (waaaay cheaper than the going rate) or there are other less expensive hotels in the area (like French Creek Inn). The benefit of staying in the site hotel is that it's easier to spend more time in the hospitality suite...as it is open until the wee hours of the morning and provides adult beverages.

    The show is basically right across the street from Valley Forge National Park, beautiful in May, and other historical sites are within a couple hours drive (like Gettysburg), so you could really make a trip of it.

    So who's coming? (y)
