No formal Clinic is planned at this time. For Show and Tell, I'll bring a $39 computer that can run JMRI for your railroad. After that, Harvey has done a lot of work to automate the L&S, I'm sure he will give us a tour if we twist his arm! Members are encouraged to bring a project, completed or in-progress, to present and discuss with the group. Presentations may need to be short, depending on participation.  If there is sufficient interest in a project a clinic can be scheduled at a future meeting.

At this time there is no planned business meeting, by Ryan may speak briefly about the election and Henry may have a short update on the upcoming convention. 


Don't Forget to Vote

Your ballot is due by May 31st. If you haven't already received a ballot, you can download one here.

Last Month

Mike Klapp hosted the April meeting. Although there were short discussion of the upcoming election and convention, the meeting was brief. The highlight was a tour of Mike's railroad. If you weren't there you missed seeing something really special. Here's a short video. It doesn't do justice to Mike's work.
