Results of 2022 HAMS Model Car Contest

July 16, 2022 at 3:00 pm | Blog | No comment

 

On July 9th we held our annual Model Car Contest & Show. Thirtyseven entrants came from all over Texas & Louisiana to enter 223 models in the contest. In addition, there were 3 “display only” models present.

One note about the award presentation. The Miscellaneous winners were announced as the Armored Car category and vice versa. The categories were on the same table and the judges reversed the scoring sheets. Not a problem with the trophies handed out as they do not carry the category on them. Sorry about that, but the results are listed correctly below.
