Scenes from our Mid-Atlantic NNL on 12 May 2018 at
the Columbian Center in Severna Park, MD:
Before the show opened to the public we made sure that
our cherished vendors would not go hungry.
Gofer Racing Decals was a prominent sponsor of our newly

and pre-wired distributors for some of our lucky guests
From the moment the doors opened Matt, Ed, and Mike
were beseiged by enthusiastic modelers who couldn't wait
to get in, display their models, and spend lots of money

came and in leading the builds with the participating
kids and their parents. Thank you Mike for your caring
approach to engaging those who will be the future of our
Now wait just a minute, this fella at the "Make
and Take" table don't look like he's 12 years old
At the end of the day, a few folks took home some nicely crafted trophies thanks to our generous show sponsors.
And so ends the tale of the 2018 edition of the Mid-Atlantic
NNL model car show.
