Presidents Report:

This summer, June we will do the TCA convention at the Windom Hotel June 28, 29 and 30.  Parking availability is uncertain.  Although the convention runs June24 through July 2, we will load in Wed. and run trains Fri. and Sat.  There will be an AMTRAK trip to Altoona, you must purchase your own ticket along with a TCA trial membership. The same applies to an Altoona trip as well as at trip to the Age of Steam.  Venders and layouts will be open to the public for $15 per family.  Final setup details will be discussed at the next meeting.  Logoed T shirt orders were taken and Rich had dry transfers for the taking.
