An Important Message about the Torcan 2020 Scale Model Show for all our club members, show patrons, vendors, sponsors and volunteers.
We hope everyone and their families are safe and healthy as Canada and Ontario confront the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. These are and continue to be stressful times that directly impact our families, our work and our modelling community.
In assessing the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and after thorough, careful and thoughtful discussion, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Torcan 2020 Scale Model Show, which was to be held on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at the Richmond Green Sports Centre.
As you are aware, the preparation of a Torcan show requires a minimum planning time of 6 months. At this time, the City of Richmond Hill Event Services/Community Services Department will not enter any discussions regarding facility bookings until the end of July 2020.
In addition, a significant number of show sponsors and vendors are preferring to wait until the situation is more settled before committing to a show. Given these conditions, there is insufficient time to deliver the quality Torcan show that everyone has come to expect and deserves.
The decision to cancel Torcan has not been made lightly and we share everyone’s disappointment. Key in choosing this course of action is our utmost concern for ensuring the safety and health of our club members and show participants. Additionally, in light of ongoing health department and government regulations around social distancing, public gatherings, wearing personal protective equipment and travel restrictions, we feel our decision has been both prudent and necessary.
We look forward to a Torcan Scale Model Show in 2021 when we can all, once again, get together with fellow scale modelers, see some outstanding scale models and welcome our friends from other provinces and states in enjoying our great hobby.
Stay Healthy. Stay Safe. Stay Modelling!

*Announced on May 15th, 2020*
Peel Scale Modelers are very proud to announce our Torcan 2020 show. We know the modelling community in the Greater Toronto Area has missed the Ajax Scale Model Show in October every year, and we are very happy to announce that this year, we are filling that void. And we’re doing so at a new venue!
So please mark your calendars for Torcan 2020 being held on Saturday October 24, 2020 at the Richmond Green Sports Centre, 1300 Elgin Mills Rd E, Richmond Hill, Ontario.
This new venue will now feature the vendors and contest all in one room. Even more parking, and plenty of food options in the area.
We think this show will truly live up to the name of the GTA’s Greatest Model Show!
