The Gundam Group of West Georgia and East Alabama had our first ever Gundam meet up at the new Hobbytown USA in Phenix City, Alabama. We were expecting a big crowd at our first Gundam event and it did not disappoint. There were 19 to 22 people from Americus and Columbus, Georgia as well as Phenix City and Montgomery, Alabama all under one roof.
Everyone was excited to see so many other builders. A few of them said that they thought they were the only one in the city that liked this hobby. It was great to see friendships being made, techniques and advice shared, and of course the awesome gunpla being built and displayed. Even the owners were amazed by the kits we built and at how many people were enjoying the fun of building gunpla! Pizza was provided by the store and we also had a special Gundam raffle that took place.
Overall, everyone had a good time and it was great to see so many builders attend at our first event. I would like to thank Hobbytown USA in Phenix City for hosting. I would also like to give thanks to Gundam United for the shout out and for letting me share about our meet up. But most importantly I would like to give a big thank you to the fellow gunpla builders who were at the event. We hope you all had a great time and we look forward to seeing you at our future events!
