I made the trip to the IPMS Nationals in 2009 as it was only about a 7 hour drive away, just to experience the
show.  It was a learning experience and was worthwhile, at least once, to see the work of the best modellers in
the world, in many cases.  I managed a couple of 2nd place finishes and a couple of Premier awards (like an
Honourable Mention for first time attendees).

As you can tell from the pics, the lighting in the hall was about the worse I have every seen at any contest.
