I got an email from IPMS to register for the convention in San Marcos. I paid the $55. This is my first NATS. What isn’t clear to me is what is the benefit of paying the registration fee now. Can someone tell me what I just paid for? Is it simply saving time by not registering the day of the show?
Newbie question, we have to have an active IPMS membership and pay the $55 registration, even if we aren’t entering models, correct?
I do believe you can pay to come in for the day/daily, “Walk Ins”. But to get the swag, buy the t-shirt, etc. then yeah, you gotta register, and to register you have to be an IPMS member.
That being said…if you’re paying to register, bring a model or two to put on the table!
