Sprue Cutters Union 28: Pack Your Bags

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few days, you'll know that the Winter Olympics have kicked off in Sochi, Russia. I live in the United States, and I can't imagine what it would be like to pack up and travel for thousands of miles to compete for a coveted Olympic medal. Considering I am not a world class athlete, and I abhor extreme temperatures, it is unlikely that I will ever do so. At any rate, I decided to use the Olympics as this week's inspiration. As you well know, one of my top interests is modeling as I am sure it is yours as well. So, this week I want to know...

- How far are you willing to travel for this hobby? -

There are hundreds of national and international shows that take place every year. Whether you are there to contest for gold, browse the amazing entries, or score sick deals at the vendor tables, there is always something there for the hobbyist to enjoy. Do you make a long distance trip every year to, say, Telford? Or are you content making the short drive to your local club meetings every month? Are you a journeyman or a stay at home modeler? Let us know!

How this works:

Listen up noobs, all it takes is a passion for this hobby and a blog to go along with it!
