GTE - Model Train Exhibition - Puyallup 2013

Postby knuddelfisch » Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:40 pm

Hey guys,


time is flying again this year and it is probably time to think about this years GTE - Model Train Exhibition in Puyallup, WA.
This year it will be a little earlier on the weekend of November 11/16-17/2013.

As it might be my last year here in the US, I would really like to display again! But last years exhibition did show that it is pretty tough to do it as a one men show.
So I would like to reach out to you guys to see if some of you guys would be crazy enough to join me at this exhibition!?
What do you think guys??


I wish you all a happy 4th of July week,
Enrico.

If the dates are November 16 and November 17, 2013, then I might be able to make it.
That is the weekend after our big local show that the TT-Tracks display will be at. Is the setup on Friday the 15th?
As far as I know the dates do not conflict with anything at work. I won't know for sure until I go back to work on the 15th.

I am interested.

Hi Bill,


yes, the setup is on Friday the 15th.
Would you come down here with your display or just join me with my layout? Would be awesome to meet you guys and do such a great exhibition together!

Hi Enrico

I do not know yet If I will be there. So far the most important hurdle has been passed, my wife is OK with it.
Now to see about work. And of course $$ for accommodation. The reviews of the inexpensive motels in the area are not nice and the good ones are over $100 a night. Still there are a few month to save up and it would only be for two nights.
As to whether I come with equipment to run or with my whole display, I don't know yet.

If you booth stay at my place, then she could come with us to the show, or have a little shopping/sight seeing trip to Seattle. It is about 30' from my place (Renton) to the show. You could come down here at Thursday evening.
GTE pays a 100$ for each layout, which would pay for some gas if you would decide to bring your setup with you.

Hi Bill,


just wanted to check your status on your trip and support for the GTE in Puyallup this year.
Do you have any news?


Thanks,

I still want to come down. My wife is interested as well. I don't think that I will bring my layout as it will have just been exhibited the weekend before.
Finances will determine if we come. Just took a bad hit to the pocket book so I am not sure right now.
We will see what is up closer to the show.
