IPMS Mt. DIABLO (Concord, California)
We are currently Contra Costa County's only IPMS chapter and are based in Concord, California. Our chapter was named after Mt. Diablo, a 3849' mountain that was named a State Historical Landmark in 1977. Gracing Mt. Diablo's peak is the historic Summit Building. The beacon at the top of the rotunda of the Summit Building is lit each year for only one day, Pearl Harbor day (December 7th). This is to honor those who lost their lives in 1941.
The club was founded in 1991 by a handful of devoted modelers and has been growing ever since. Even though the chapter is a small group in comparison to other clubs, we have had a successful and fun time of it. Our chapter contains several National IPMS Contest winners in addition to the many Regional awards many of our members have been fortunate to receive over the years. We pride ourselves in being low-key. This is not the kind of club where by-laws are quoted.
Our dues are $12.00 per year.
