Last year's event was great.   Our club has attended the Bedford events as well as last year's Columbus event.  We have thoroughly enjoyed both and will be returning to both this year.  You need not be a member of a club nor have a module to take part.  Last year our club included a module from Brooklyn, NY. Other clubs also included single modules.  In addition any of the layouts will permit someone to run on their layout. Just ask.   Venders will be there also and usually there are some deals to be made.

The show was great last year. We couldn't get enough modules organized get Tri-State Ntrak involved but a majority of the club members will probably be carpooling up either Saturday or Sunday. We will probably plan that at the meeting this week.
