Iowa!

Then again I speak selfishly as I am from Iowa :)
I am seeking information on M38A1's configured for MP use from 1953-?.

I am also interested in equipment and uniforms worn and carried by MP's during this timeframe.

Well, I'm from GA, so it is what it is. My first convention was sville, AL so that brings bak memories. But if we are trying to expose to new markets or more profitable ones, having the annual convention in PA, then Mass and then IN or PA, OH and then IN doesn't move it around much.

Last Massachusetts MVPA Convention was 1985 in Lowell. It's about due if feasable.

Don. Is the Findlay, OH 2020 a fact
Or was that you wishful thinking?

Looks like i will never get to the convention with my Jeep if it always on the east coast. Was hoping for Texas next year. But sounds like that is not happening.

It was in So. CA in 1981 and in the SF Bay Area in 1989, 2003, and 2016. Top consumer/population markets usually present a high facility cost to do a convention, especially if mostly or all indoors. Hotels can be pricy too. But these places are where the people are. The good thing about most of CA and the Southwest for an MVPA event is nearly no rain from June through September.

I'd vote for a parking lot show at the World Cruise Center in San Pedro, CA, especially if part of the adjacent building could be used. I don't know what goes on in it. Partner with Pacific Battleship Center which runs the Battleship Iowa Museum there. Tours to the Queen Mary and Ft. MacArthur Museum? I don't know if the Southern CA clubs have enough manpower but with a partner organization it might work. New Southern California MVCC president and veteran MVPA national and Alcan Highway convoyer Dan McCluskey could handle it (easy for me to say).
