Just a reminder that it is only 10 more days till the Heart of America Garden Railway show!!! The gas prices here the midwest are currently ranging from $3.71 for regular to $4.15 for Super Unleaded.
9 days for vendors and exhibitors. I am looking forward to " hopfully" meet all the MLS members that can make it to the show. Yes we will have an MLS booth setup. From an idea posted in the BTS posts, a sign in book on the table sounds like a great idea so we can see who made it incase we don't get to meet everyone.
I am not sure if there is a dinner planned or not. ( I haven't heard anything) This is the second year for the show so we are still learning and trying to grow. I say we, but I am just a member of the Kansas City Garden Railway Society and the Club News Letter editor. And also on the Module setup crew. Other than that, I am just a train enthusiast with a camera.
Anyway, I just wanted to post a little reminder and hope as many MLS members and Non-members can make it to the show.

The best deal on rooms so far.


I found a hotel that has a coupon on the www.opcvb.com website under "lodging finder" then click on the coupon page.
down towards the bottom is a coupon for the Settle Inn. Stay one night and get the next night free. Price is 74.95 for first night. then free. This motel is about 2 miles +/- from the show. If you stay 2 nights , you get 2 nights free.

I just made my reservations last night. Super 8 has a deal going, $42.50 per night. I know it's not five star, but the more I save, the more I can spend on train stuff. Anybody designed any kind of downloadable MLS name badge, or do I just make one up?

I would still not turn down anyone interested in giving a clinic. There are still a few slots available.
