New Member? Start Here!
Welcome aboard! To get you started with the club, here is a brief orientation to start you on the right track with your membership.
First, make sure you’ve filled out an application and pay your dues to the club Secretary. Once you’ve paid, you will be given a “System Pass” as a receipt of your membership which will list your name and when your membership expires.
After your application has been processed, you will be added to our monthly newsletter list which is emailed to the membership around the first of each month. This newsletter is filled with the latest news and activities of the club. Of course, you can always check out the Calendar here on the website which is kept up to date. In general, the club has activities every week providing lots of opportunities to become involved.
As a new member, take some time to learn the club’s history and delve into all the train shows we’ve attended, the modules our members have built, the clinics our members have presented, and the club trips we have taken to see what fun is in store for your future with the club.
If you are ready to get involved, take some time to meet the Club Leadership who will help guide you through all the opportunities where you can contribute. You can also show your support of the club by following along on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, and get geared up at the club’s store.
