CANCELED: Modular Setup at the Upland Strawberry Festival

As you know, we continue to deal with the pandemic and the governors guidelines. I, along with the club president and board members have decided it would be best to not do the Upland show. Also, the Castleton Christian church has cancelled their September festival. At this time, unless we decide to do the Fort Wayne show, possibly in November, we will not be setting up until February of 2021. I have been in contact with Bill Grove (Great Train Expo) and they have been out of their office for the month of May and are just beginning to get back sometime mid to late June. The fall and winter schedule is not yet put together. if at all possible, I would like to try to do the Fort Wayne show to make up for the two we lost this year, provided the date works out and there is enough interest. We would be taking just the one trailer up and putting the layout we use in Upland. Last year they moved the date for the Fort Wayne show out of December and it was the week before Thanksgiving. I am continuing to look for possible new shows, when I find one of interest I will notify you by email. I know Dave Wheelock has been keeping you updated, but I wanted to make sure you guys knew I am working on getting us back on track.

Latest Newsletters and website issues

Hi all,

Recently you may have had an issue trying to log in to the website. There was an automatic update that caused some issues to everyone’s account. It has since been resolved (knock on wood). In the process of fixing the issue I had to reset all the passwords for every account. You can regain access to the website with your account after you complete a password reset.

I have also update the Newsletter page with (hopefully) better organization.  Please let me know your thoughts on the new layout.
