The program will consist of clinics in the morning followed by a KitBusters Workshop in the afternoon. So make sure you bring along your project(s), tools, materials, etc.

The SLD will be sponsoring lunch for everyone, most likely pizza, but we'll confirm the food selection during the morning activities.


The subject for the September Display table is Your Summer Project and Models That Have Earned Recognition . The latter could be models that have earned trophies but can also be those models who have won praise from a family member, etc.
But don't let that limit you, feel free to bring in any railroad related item!


The entry fee is $7.00 at the door.
NMRA members can join the SLD / NMRA and enjoy all of its benefits for a nominal fee and guests are always welcome.
