    Hello,

    Has the idea of having forums for geographic areas ever been passed around? I have been involved with a few organizations that did this and it helped people with local events and such.

    Any comments?

    Cogent,

    While that might be a good idea, this forum isn't really big enough to warrant it. There is a section for "up coming events", and it's not as if that section is flooded with upcoming events!! :):)

    If there is a special event in your area, then it's not a problem to start a thread in "General Talk" ("up coming events") section, and mention the geographical area in the thread title/subject.

    Steve,

    I see that you are from Oregon, also. Woody is probably right about the numbers, but I tend to agree that a regional forum would be a nice option to have. It seems to me that there are very few individuals from the northwest US that make their presence known.

    In case you are interested and can make it to Eastern Oregon on Labor Day weekend, we are planning an event in John Day. Information can be found here:

    Bring a carload of model railroaders with you. :)
