Storekeeper’s Report

1) Price of wheels is now $10 a pack.  Five packs were bought; do we want more?

2) 40 items of clothing were ordered for arrival before Springfield (or see Clark @ the show).


1) NMRA 2009 – The roster is due by May 1st, along with any layout revision(s). Dan has PDFs of Convention information –registration, module contests, and lodging.  There were some questions on lodging, for which Dan will check.

2) Christmas display – It had good reviews in the newspapers, and the Church was pleased.  There were nearly 1000 viewers!  There was good practice time on the major modules.

3) Springfield – S gauge will not be there.  Thus, more space for On30!  Loading for the blue trailer was requested for the 14th at 7 PM.  A Sunday work session is scheduled for the 18th.  Unloading will occur on Friday the 23rd at 8 AM.  For the HO layout – we will try the mainline sign-up sheet again, as well as the module sign-up sheets again.  Please sign up for 4 periods over the two days.

4) Communications – Sandy will attempt to get boom type headsets (push-to-talk), with the intent to buy 8 radios and 10 headsets at a cost of ~$300.

5) Reloading – To correct last years problem, most covers will be stored in the ’coffin’.  Bill Evans/or Bob MacGregor will be the loadmasters for the reloading of the blue trailer, pictures as needed, and ensure trailers enter when ready.

New Business

1) Bob MacGregor restated that there will be no G scale present at Willimantic.
