Has anyone been able to get the NMRA to respond? At any rate, unfortunately, I'm out. One of my best friends is getting married and I am one of the groomsmen. Since the wedding took priority, my work schedule was moved right over the NMRA dates. Sorry, folks.

I might be able to show up, or not. I do not know when my discharge date is yet. Right now it is set for early July, so I might be able to make it now.

Like I said before, there is an upcoming NMRA National Convention in Atlanta in 2013. The one for next year is in CA, I will not try to make that, out of the costs associated with travel in CA.

Has anyone gotten their modules completed yet? It takes time to build quality layouts, so I am thinking that trying to get the gang together for this year's national convention may have been a bit rushed.

I hope to be in better condition to make the 2012 show in Grand Rapids, MI.

It pains me terribly to admit it but that seems to be the case. Although I must admit that I saw this coming many months ago. The excitement for the modules was definately there but there wasn't much commitment for this trip. Even though circumstances prevent me from going, if 4 or 5 of you guaranteed you'll be there with modules in hand, I'll pull all-nighters to get modules built and the circumstances be damned.

Ultimately, yes I think the whole thing is a bit rushed. But, I thrive on getting things moving and if it takes 2 or 3 years to get us coordinated, well "rushing it" means we're one year ahead.


I swear, nothing else in life has done it..............this board has taught me patience.............
