And following weekend (22-24) is the Mid Atlantic RPM in Baltimore.  Though I'd be more apt to attending the Nscale Weekend over the RPM if anyone is wondering :D

Gentlemen!
I just had the extreme pleasure of updating the site with the official word from Mike:
https://www.n-scaleweekend.com/
Confirmed: September 16 through 18 at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona.

Be there or be somewhere else.

I'm there!  Any chance of an official hotel (a la Winterfest - Amherst) with a reserved block of rooms and discount rates?

I doubt it. I don't think anyone wants to deal with a hotel to arrange it.

That said, this place is the logical lodging and likely the spot for the after party.

The Courtyard by Marriott is probably $30-ish more per night, but is adjacent to the facility.  As in, you don't need to move your car (parking is a bit limited at the convention center).

I may have to pass this year, as that weekend is typically a trip to NC to celebrate family birthdays. Hopefully the event will move back to August in 2023.

One other thing, is there a 'All Comers' T-Trak layout again? I'd like to bring a module.

Thx Kent

Yes :D

Numerous vendors, quite a few layouts.  Last time was a huge T-track module layout.  Good trip if you're looking for deals.  Same weekend is Mainline Hobby open house, so depending on your travels, could catch some layout tours as well down towards the PA/MD state line
