O & S Scale Midwest Show
After great thought and deliberation, we have decided to cancel this year’s O & S Scale Midwest scheduled for September 18-20, 2020 at the Wyndham Indianapolis West due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. We are hoping to secure the same weekend next year, September 17-19, 2021, and are waiting on a new contract from the hotel. Our plan was to hold off till August 7th to make a decision, however, with things the way they are, we wanted to give as much notice of the cancellation as possible to the vendors who supported us.

While we have been able to secure vendors for the show, we are unable to secure the needed attendees for the event to be successful. We tried very hard to get more attendees to pre-register by posting on several social media platforms, including our two online magazines, and sending an email to over 3,400 people. Unfortunately, we did not receive the response needed, and actually received numerous negative emails questioning our moral compass. To all of you that have supported us, thank you.

We will begin processing refunds shortly to all attendees and vendors that have pre-registered. Please allow 2-3 weeks to receive your refund before contacting us. If you have made reservations at the hotel, please be sure to cancel them.

If you paid by credit card, we will refund the card, otherwise, we’ll begin mailing checks this weekend.
Again, we apologize to all the wonderful vendors and attendees who signed up, but with the present hysteria on both sides of the issue, it’s not fair to the vendors if we can’t attract enough people who want to make purchases.

We look forward to seeing you all in 2021!
