Boy Scouts

Wednesday December 7th at Kelly Jr High, Norwich at 7pm we set up a small display for the boy scouts round table. Andrew displayed some singles, different scales of locomotives. As well as a Branch Track in contradiction, and Chaz brought the completed Orange Tree module. There were a few people who came up to speak with us. One of which is giving away the "Trackside" layout from the old store in Montville.


Andrew and Amanda looked into the different material options for aprons and the heavier fabric does not have a pen pocket, and the pockets are lower on the apron. Vote was held for which material unanimously for the lighter 'Bistro' style.
