I guess I joined IPMS in 1965 or 65.  I lived in the Detroit area and our group used to receive the IPMS/UK magazines and stuff them in an envelope with the IPMS/USA quarterly to mail to members.  At that time, Jerry Campbell was a Detroit Public School substitute teacher and his wife, Judy worked for public health.  A hobby shop named Warbirds opened and featured imported kits, parts and accessories for the first time.  I moved to Brazil in 1973 and had to drop my membership.  I found modelers down there and joined their local club.  In 1978, I moved to Venezuela and rejoined IPMS/USA again.  Recently I was able to get my original number back.  Back in the US in 1987, I have been members of clubs in Warren, MI and then here in Kalamazoo. Plastic modeling is a great hobby but large movements help to keep the number of finished models in check and make you really think about how many books and magazines you want to move.
