We had what looked like a record attendance and a near-record turnout of 647 models entered into the show! Thanks to everyone who made this another outstanding show; from club members to our guests, many who travel great distances to enjoy the weekend with us.

There was also a record turnout of junior modelers and kids in the make 'n take "build a '57 Chevrolet" in the Jonquil room. The kids were all having a blast.

Everyone commented on the astoundingly high quality of models throughout the show; our show is blessed to attract the best of the best and it's clear that the word is out that Atlanta is one of the must-attend shows of the year and continues to grow, the crowds around the tables were thick.

Ours is a modified NNL, with a few more awards than the most traditional NNL's.

This years winners:

Ken Mosezar Best In Show: Clay Kemp/Superman Returns #24 Monte Carlo

Gary McCulloch from Charleston, SC was the happiest guy in the community center; his first trip to the Atlanta NNL and he not only met some of his modeling heroes this weekend like Hank Borger, Bill Coulter & Bob Shelton, he won one of the coveted Top Ten awards for his '56 Ford CV model.

Dirk Joseph cleaned house, winning "Best Camaro" and "Best Retro in the Metro" with his Jada Camaro concept car, but also winning the "Augie Hiscano" award for his Chevy Cameo truck.

No show would be complete without a big win by Clay Kemp, who won Best In Show (the top vote getter of the top ten) this year with his #24 Superman Returns Monte Carlo.
