So if either side detains me based on my dangerous countenance... at least I can set up trains in the holding area!!!

Printed handouts today. Worked a deal at work to use the store printer.
Paid $20.00 Canadian for 100 double sided copies. That is about a fifth of what I paid in Portland - over $75.00 US$. Now all folded and ready to hand out.

Tables that were upstairs are now downstairs ready to load.
Will load up tomorrow evening after work.

Still looking like I will be at the hall 5 pm ish.
For those who show up early, name tags will be under the name:
"Pacific North West TT Scale Modellers".

See you there.
Regards

On Saturday, I'm gathering?

If all goes as planned I *should* have one thing finished!

I am beyond 'Not Ready'... in shambles would probably be more descriptive.


I though I was the only one "not ready". It feels good to be in company of fellow modellers. But then again, are we ever ready? :lol:

I don't know what that word "ready" means!

This is a new experience. Instead of the gymnasium in the community centre in a suburb of Vancouver, the show this time is in a sports arena at the Pacific National Exhibition grounds near the city boundary. The hall is a simple bus ride from home for me and just up the hill from the hobby shop where Bill Dixon works.

The hall seems dark but my camera says the lighting is as good or slightly better than at the older venue. For the first time, too, TT Tracks was not up and running before anyone else. It took time to set up the display because it is larger than ever before.

Also, there were many groups setting up before we arrived. The hall permits vehicles to enter for unloading, so groups which had been excluded from earlier shows now have brought in several large displays.

This is our first international showing of TT in Vancouver. Richard Brennan has joined us for the weekend after a long drive up the coast from California.

So far it has been pretty exciting and the show itself hasn't even begun. Others may post their views. There'll be more for sure happening Saturday and Sunday. It's a rainy weekend, but people here are used to rain, so I think attendance should be good.

Nice set up.

I'm going to a show in Syracuse, New York today. It's the 41st show at the State Fairgrounds.

Saturday show was packed. Easier day Sunday with attendance still good. My camera battery died so I tried photos with a tablet and got wi-fi. Some photos directly from the show.
