    Time of meeting up

    O K
    I know this is early for posting , but if you are coming out, those who make it for the 9 am registration, will be moving out on the tour NO later than 9 45 am.
    Robin said we should be able to find some where to meet up for coffee and lunch.

    Hope to see you there, MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN TO US if we have not met before :wave: :thumb:

    As I remember - the absolute key to enjoying it in one day is to get there early (or at least on time) - quickly scan the list of open layouts, prioritize what you want to specifically check out ie scale size etc, and put them in a good driving order. Skip lunch and eat late.
    Depending on my work schedule I should be there with members of my two railroad clubs I belong to.
    How do we identify the GAUGE group.....I'm thinking outside WITH THE BOX.
    :D

    Sounds like fun Chris, but I'm afraid Ont. is a little out of my range.

    I saw the layout list last week and it looks good. I probably won't be there (visit to inlaw in the USA).
    Suggestion: get a good commercial street map of the area as the maps in the folder can be misleading (check where north is; scale will vary).
    Sit down at the start and pick out promising sites. Highlight the maps and plan a route.
    CHECK THE OPENING HOURS.
    Don't try to get to all 44 layouts.
    Not to miss? Port Kelsey in SW Kitchener.
    You can probably do Kitchener-Waterloo and one or two other cities.

    A couple years ago several friends and I managed about 20 layouts in all cities plus a bunch of rural layouts.

    In my opinion, the Waterloo Region MRC in Marysville is well worth a look, although scenery isn't very far, the amount of track in their layout is VERY impressive.
