NMRA 2021 in Santa Clara California

Post by Bill Dixon »

Hi All

I hope you had a great New Years.

The 2021 NMRA National is supposed to be in Santa Clara, California this year.
With Covid badly ravaging California right now, I don't expect that this show will happen.
If it did try to happen, I don't know if our border will be open so I could cross it to go to the show.

Perhaps Richard B. when he has a moment could update us on the status of the show.

I think we can forget about this. Our rollout of the vaccine is slow af. I just don't see a show happening.

Sad news but not unexpected.
It is not safe to hold shows right now and will not be for a few months. Some states are having events right now(Plano Texas last weekend) but you wouldn't get me anywhere near them. I value my health and life more than a train show.

Perhaps the show can be rescheduled a few years in the future.
