Marine Corps Museum Show Report
March 14-15, 2015
Everyone arrived at the museum around 7am. Setup began and we realized that we had the wide radius corners, and that the current number of modules would not fit into our designated area. I have to say a big thanks to Rick Eudy, he helped reconfigure the layout (and also brought the Tracker trailer). We all worked together to get the layout up and running by 9:45am.
Saturday attendance was very good, museum count = 1,979. All the trackers got plenty of run time and we had no other issues with the layout. I spoke with Dave Fair, the Museum Coordinator, and he was very pleased with the event. Just so happens, he’s into trains and asked if he could run his train, which we were happy to accommodate. We received a lot of positive feedback from people who came.
Sunday morning trains started rolling at 9 am sharp. Museum attendance = 1305. A little bit down of from the previous day, but still good. Lots of veterans stopped by and it was nice to be able to give something back to them for their service. Everyone really enjoyed the scenery. It was my first Track Master opportunity. John Zampino was the original Track Master, but had a change of plans. I’d like to thank everyone for their patience. Also big thanks to all: John, Carl, Joe, Ken, Martin, David, Bill, Frank, Don, Bob, Jim, Bob, Jack, Chuck, Mike, and Rick.
I’d like to suggest we have business cards printed with our web site. There were a lot of people who would like to come to other shows or possibly join the club.
I look forward to events like this in the future.
