Salem Civic Center

Salem, Virginia


THE VENDORS:   Whether your interests center on the beautiful, sleek lines of a fighter jet, or the plodding massive bulk of a T-34 tank, or the graceful curve of the hull of a steel frigate, or even the “out-of-this world” alien spacecraft, the vendors will have your selections ready for transport to your already overloaded shelves at home.  For two days, the Salem Civic Center will be the world’s largest mobile hobby store.  Vendors from all parts of the country will travel far distances to bring kits, books, tools, paints and other items to excite the masses.  We look to have all available space in the Civic Center arena full for your shopping needs.  If you would like to vend, tables are $35.00 each for the event.  Please contact Greg Clower, Vendor Coordinator, at or call 540-650-1552.  He can work with you on multiple table deals.

SPONSORSHIPS:  For all IPMS events, the help of manufacturers, hobby shops, other IPMS chapters, and local model groups and individuals is always appreciated and needed.  We cannot put on these great shows without the help of these fine people.  The model categories, as well as the Special Awards need your support.  Category sponsorships for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are $20.00 each and the “Best of” awards are $40.00.  Specialty awards are $60.00.  Please contact Tim Ward at or 540-977-6205 if you would like to sponsor an award.  Check payments can be sent to IPMS Roanoke Valley, PO Box 20841, Roanoke, VA 24018  (make checks payable to IPMS Roanoke Valley)

The Roanoke Valley Chapter of the International Plastic Modeler’s Society (RVIPMS) and the associated chapters of IPMS Region 2 are pleased to announce the return of the VIRGINIA SHOOT-OUT to the Salem Civic Center, August 13, 2022 in Salem, VA.    We look forward to seeing friends from all over the East Coast and especially our neighbors in Region2, 3 and 12.
