2014 President's Commentary

Summary comments on 2013 and looking ahead to 2014.
Posted by: yardmaster

Welcome to 2014, I can’t believe it is already February and that we have completed one show. I’m looking forward to an exciting 2014 with more shows throughout the year. We are planning work sessions to convert older modules to the new pin alignment system.
We are busy planning our annual meeting/dinner in March. This meeting will conclude our twenty first year as a club. We will have awards in several categories and the selection process is going to be very challenging this year, as we have several candidates to consider in each category.
Looking back on 2013, we had a great year. We were very busy from January to July getting ready for the train show at the national convention of the NMRA. All of the older modules were repaired and scenery refreshed. Several new modules were built for the show. All this work was done along with putting on several shows before the national show.
We picked up a large number new members in 2013 that has brought a new energy to the club. Just to see some of the work that has gone into both old and new modules this year is amazing.
