2021 NMRA National in Santa Clara Ca

Post by Bill Dixon »

The 2021 NMRA National will be in Santa Clara, CA. That's near San Jose CA.

I guess Richard will be the contact for that event.

...but it's so FAR away; 28 miles!

Sure... I will gladly be TT-scale PoC for the 2021 National in Santa Clara...

Actually, there's about a 50-50 chance I'll end up on the Convention organizing committee...
since I'm Clinics Chair with the hosting Coast Division - Pacific Coast Region (PCR) NMRA.

Considering that my sister does not live to far from the location of the 2021 National Train Show, I am trying to figure out how to make the trip work.

The 'sibling B&B' option is going to be by far the most cost-effective...
The going rates for rooms in Silicon Valley are 2x to 3x what we just paid in Sandy UT.

Good point. I think it might be wise to invest in a camper trailer...

So how many rooms are available at the Richard B&B?<G>

Be curious to see what the convention hotel rate will be. I paid $119 at Salt Lake City. Wouldn't grumble at $150 or so.

I don't see an official name for the convention yet.
Is it the 'Silicon Valley Express'?

Also no web site yet. A bit hard to register.

I believe the NMRA does not let the two-year out Convention advertize formally before the NEXT Convention (i.e. St. Louis...) on the grounds that that would poach away potential attendees.

I suspect this rule was put in place when print media ruled... long before the extant of the searchable Internet was recognized.
