The August Lightning Slinger is now posted
The August Turkey Creek meeting will not be held at Shawnee Mission North. Please see the announcement below by club Superintendant Ray Brown:
Hell-o Ray Here,
I would like to begin by thanking all of our volunteers who helped with the train show. Without your gracious giving of time and talent our train show would not be possible. Over all I think we had a great show. Most of the venders I spoke to had a great show and that is how we get them back. The one disappointing part of the show was the contest room. We were way down on entries. I don’t know if the show snuck up on some or they didn’t think they had anything good enough to bring, you know how I feel about that. We were missing some modelers that would normally be there and would have had entries, but next year I would like to see a lot more involvement in the contest room. That being said I would like to congratulate the modelers that did participate and those who won awards, great job. Hope to see your entry there next year.
This month we will be meeting at Floyd Brittian’s and Mike Porter’s. For those of you that might not know them, they live north of the river. This meeting is twofold. We’ve talked about getting the Northland modelers more involved. I hope to see a group of them there. If we have a descent turnout by Northland we can work on the possibility of having more meeting up there in the future. As always they are corrigibly invited to our originally scheduled meeting. Secondly Floyd and Mike are always looking for operators and would like everyone to see their layouts. I have operated on both and had a good time doing so. They’re both good layouts and pretty laid back for operations. Even if you’re not into operating their modeling of scenery and structures are enough to get you there. We will start at Floyd’s about 6:45 – 7:00 then to Mike’s about 7:45 – 8;00. We will have a short meeting at Mike’s. I want a good showing of our regular group to show support of our modelers in the Northland!
Floyd’s address: 4231 NW 80th Terrace, Kansas City MO
Mike’s address: 7505 NW Moore Drive, Kansas City MO
We will send a special edition of the Slinger a few days before the meeting [Now posted -RPK] as a reminder and with maps for those of you that need them. See you on the 26th.
