PTsideshow,
Do we need to make some arrangements with you to set aside a group of tables for MEM members who want to sit together? Sshire has sort of coordinated things the last few years, but he's not around  here much lately.


Do we need a sort of count of folks who want to sit in a MEM area, and how much space they expect they'll need?

You will need to know about how many tables you might need and the best thing is to contact davezimmerman@comcast.net he can set it up. I will tell him if the weather holds and I can make it to tomorrows meeting

ok, could everybody that wants to sit with the group post here with an estimate of how much space you might need? I know I need a half-table at most, and I figure gldavision can easily fill a table. I PM'd Stan to see if he's coming and will be sitting with us.

Hello,

Never shown models before, so I guess 1/2 table would be good. Bringing 4 or 5 and won't need air since I won't be running any. Hotel reservations made.
What do I do when arriving on Friday to get in ?

Thanks !
Brian
Thanks for the visit !

Brian,
On Friday, just walk right in and find us. After you get your stuff carried in and set up, you can mosey over to the registration table, sign up and pay entrance.

P.S. I heard from Stan and he won't make it this year. He's going to make it a bi-annual affair. I told him he'd be missed.

Only bringing 3 this year.  Stan will be missed, and we won't have the banner.

I will be there with two running and one non-running steam engine. Sorry to hear Stan won't make it. Half to one table for me.

For those that are coming to the show next weekend. The weather is supposed to be better, no freezing rain like today and in the low to mid 50's and clear. And be sure to check the MDOT site for changes in construction status of the freeways as it some times seems it changes by the hour or at least daily. https://mdotnetpublic.state.mi.us/drive/

Just a little update for those who will be sitting together. Dave Zimmerman has reserved tables for us under Model Engine Maker. Looking forward to the show!

Pictures please, you lucky ones who get to attend! :stickpoke:

Oh and a question about the flyer - "No ice on the display floor" - does that mean you have to drink your Scotch/bourbon neat? ;)

I think it means you have to play hockey on roller blades.

Makes you wonder what incident prompted that rule...

It's not a rule, but a feature. The display floor is literally a hockey rink.
