Polk Area Model Society
About our Model Club
We are an active IPMS Model Club (#1130) with close to 50 members, we meet the 4th Tuesday of each month! We encourage builders of ALL ages to participate, and we are always looking for new members. You can leave a message on this site if your wanting to know more about our exciting model club, we have model contests, participate in shows, have HUGE swap meets, and get together now and again for a bite to eat.
There are no rules other than being polite to each member, (we meet in a church) so casual dress ok. We look forward to any members wanting to join and if you are already a member please feel free to post here!
