November GTE Show
Lester reported that it was a good show and that the gremlins were out on both days, had plenty of help setting up and running. As this was the first time setting up since we installed the Anderson Power Poles it was a teaching experience for many members. Lester reported that we had one set of plugs that had to be realigned other than that they worked great. The photos were provided by new member Jeff Govin.
2010 Field Trips and Train Trips
Time to start thinking about what train trip the club would like to take next year so put your ideas on some paper and bring to the corporate meeting so we can start the planning.
We have a list of field trips for the next year or two. Chris will be the dispatcher for the Tiny Town trip. Jeff will dispatch a trip to the west portal of Moffat Tunnel. Mike will dispatch a camping trip to Camp Hale and a side trip to Hagerman tunnel. We will put the list on the club bulletin board so the membership can view the proposed trips.
