I got the offer for Contest Cars  in my email.  I haven't ordered it yet.  Probably best if I call them first.

I hope so, too. I heard it will be produced. I always buy it from the local hobby store, but I may just order it this year to be sure I get one

Yes Trevor. We don't have many hobbystores here anymore, all our stuff is mainly online, plus Scale Auto isn't sold in newsagents either. We see FSM but only in the large town newsagents.

Since they advertised the Contest Issue in their latest issue of Scale Auto, I had called them last week and had asked about it and they said yes, so I ordered my copy as I do every year. Of course you would WANT the LAST issue of Contest Cars right?

Ummm, will there be any 2020 contests for them to cover?

As far as I know, virtually every contest since March has either been canceled or postponed.

Most of the shows covered in the Contest Annuals did not take place in the year of the Annual. They are from the previous year. So, yes, they have plenty of shows to choose from.

I always thought it depended on what the deadline for submitting photos was. I tend to agree with Steve on this, there just haven't been many shows held this year, so I can't imagine there is much to publish.

The 2019 Annual covered 28 shows (if my count is correct) from June 2018 through May 2019. There were 15 shows from 2018 and 13 from 2019. Of the 2019 shows, 8 were from March or earlier. So, it can be estimated that there cold be approximately 23 shows in the 2020 Annual, from May 2019 through March 2020. It also depends on what shows they shot and what shows sent in their own photos.

So, it will probably be thinner, but not by much.

I see your point. I certainly wasn't expecting that many shows to be covered. Perhaps it will be worth purchasing after all.

All that I know is that all of the shows that I normally attend were either postponed, or canceled after March.

The NNL North show that the guys from SA normally get some of their contest fodder from was moved from May, to November, so I guess that I will have no chance of participation in the final issue.

Too bad.

I made the previous years issue.

I guess that will have to do.

Hi Patrick,

I just handed the second grouping of shows for Contest Cars 2020 to design last Thursday. In short, it's on its way.

By my count, we feature 29 shows this year.

 

Regards,

Tim
