The Second Annual TigerCon 2012 Model Contest and Vendor Fair held December 1st, 2012 was a big success!  

I want to say a huge thank you to all of the CMSM club members and family that worked to make the event the success that it was.  Because of the welcome table smiles, and the registration desk professionalism, and the vendor helpers humping boxes, and the raffle operators managing the tickets, and the announcer keeping us informed, and the make-n-take coordinators working with the kids, and the model judges - the contestants and vendors have told us how great our show is and that they are looking forward to next year!

Contest Information

Visitors and their Approximate Ages

  • 24 - Kids (less than 20)
  • 16 - 20s
  • 6 - 30s
  • 22 - 40s
  • 25 - 50s
  • 17 - 60s and older
A total of 110 visitors were recorded.  However, because the Columbia's Farmer's market was going on at the same time it was hard to know who was here for the models and who was here for the rutabagas.  We were able to grab and redirect a few shoppers to stop by and see the models.


We had 42 contestants mostly from Missouri with a few from Arkansas, Illinois and Kansas. These 42 contestants entered 165 models total!  We had 15 first time TigerCon contestants with 27 returning modelers.


This was the first year we did a Make-N- Take for the kids ages 8-13.  We were pleased that we had 12 youth (our future contestants) pick up a model and built it.  Parents were very thankful that we had something to engage the kids.

Thank You

I also want to make a special "Thank You" to Colin Smialek (for being the Show Coordinator), Scott Adams and Jack Andrewson for the many long hours and extra effort they put into organizing and coordinating this event.  Without you it would not be the success that it is!
