CMMA 2014 National Covention
The 2014 Carousel Modeler and Miniatures Association (CMMA) convention will be held Saturday July 26th and Sunday July 27th at C. Fred Johnson Recreation Park, Johnson City, New York. The convention will coincide with the 5th annual Carousel Day at the Park on Saturday July 26th. The convention will feature operating carousel models, hand carved miniature carousel horses, miniature circus and other displays. The convention displays will be open from 10am – 8pm on Saturday and again noon until 5pm on Sunday and will be located inside the carousel building at the park.
On display for the first time will be the CMMA Evolution Carousel Project carousel model. This exciting new project is designed for the beginning carousel modeler and can be built with a minimum number of tools. The carousel is designed to be adapted to more complex carousel model designs as the modeler gains additional skills. Several CMMA members will be carving miniature carousel animals during the exhibit.
The CMMA was founded in 1986 to bring together those interested in constructing operating carousel models, miniature carousel carvers and other carousel enthusiasts. The CMMA has members from across the U.S. and Canada. This will is the third CMMA convention held in Broome County. Plan to stop by the CMMA convention display to see the amazing models. Members will be available to discuss carousel modeling and miniature carousel carving.
