Upcoming Mini-Meets

Fall 2018 Mini-Meet
The Fall 2017 Mini-Meet is will take place on Saturday, September 22.  We will meet at First United Methodist Church at 607 W Main St in Medford, OR.  Doors open at 8am, with the meet beginning at 9am. Lunch will be provided. Cost will be $5.00. We will hold a board meeting during lunch, which all members are invited to attend, followed by AP evaluations, which are also open to members. In the afternoon, layout open houses will be available.

Tables will be available for members showcase their model railroading related items. Otherwise, we will have a model railroad contest (locomotive, rail car, miscellaneous, structure, and photo categories, with a $25 prize for the best-of-show winner), and members are invited to bring their models for display only if they wish.

Members who wish to have models evaluated for AP awards should contact Glenn Edmison (gedmison@aol.com) in advance so he can tell you which documents are required for evaluations.

For more info, contact Bruce Kelly at wilmingtonnorthern@sprynet.com or 541-613-1638. The phone number accepts both voice and text.
