The Maxximus Hobby Experience 2020
March 20-22, 2020, #4 Legion Hall, 1755 Portage Ave, Wpg, MB
Dear Hobbyists,Due to the recent concerns surrounding COVID-19 we have made the proactive decision to postpone the 2020 Maxximus Hobby Experience. Due to the recommendations of our governments and health authorities we feel this is the right decision to make at this time. We want to assure you that we are very excited for this year’s event and we will be looking to re-schedule for a later date when this pandemic has been fully contained and gatherings are no longer a concern for public health. In the meantime, keep building, painting, and most importantly, keep you and your families safe. We hope to see you soon.Regards,Maxximus.
