|Presenting the First Annual|
|Cen-Tex Division NMRA Meet|
|Lone Star Region National Model Railroad Association|
On a personal note, I am very thankful for the folks who worked on the committee and made the Meet possible: Mike Barrett, Terry Nathan, Jack Merkel, Phil Sharpnack, Riley Triggs, and George Zapalac. Bill Dryden and Harry Petheram helped with the car repair table, Carol Merkel ran the contest check-in, and Steve Jackobs helped with registration. (I'm sure I'm forgetting someone...please forgive me!)
I'd also like to thank the gracious layout owners who opened their homes on the tour and for operating sessions, as well as the team of judges who helped with the contest. And last, but not least, much thanks to the folks who presented our five outstanding clinics: Chuck Lind and Loren Neufeld, Duane Richardson, Tom Pearson (all of which are from outside the area), Jack Merkel and Riley Triggs. Thanks, everyone! -Peter
We will be having a Meet in Fall 2016! It will probably be in October. Watch for updates, we should know the exact date and location soon.
We had activies for everyone:
The contest was simplified (compared to regional conventions); categories included: Locomotives and Rolling Stock, Scenery and Structures (including full scenes and modules), and Photography (model or prototype, not significantly edited). We used the rules and judging forms published by the LSR.
If you have any questions or suggestions for next year's meet please send us an email!
