Winnipeg Model Railroad Club meets Friday, September 11 at Charleswood Legion

This is where we meet: The Charleswood Legion 6003 Roblin Boulevrd. It's pretty easy to find. Just look for the tank! Please park and enter on the west side of the building.

Welcome back to another year at the WMRC!  September's program features a presentation from Ian Plett, our local long-haul trucker, who manages to do a lot of railfanning while at work. Ian has some great material to show us along with a few video clips he's managed to get while out on the road. After Ian's presentation, we'll have a short film that was made in 1928 showing a steam locomotive being built at CPR's Angus Shops in Montreal.

The canteen will be open, and we'll be holding our monthly 50-50 draw and our model display. If you've been doing any modelling during these rainy weekends we've been having all summer long, by all means bring it down! You can't win a prize unless you do!

To qualify for the monthly model contest prize, your model must show signs of either some assembly, (not just parts in a box or a ready to run model from the manufacturer) or some weathering beyond minor touch-ups of MU hoses. Each entry must include your name and a short write up describing the work that has been accomplished to date.

If you are planning to build a model using a 3D printer but have only completed some portion of your 3D CAD drawings, then we would like to see them -  but only if the renderings are actually your own work! No scanned materials! Each entrant will have but one entry for the monthly prize, which is a $15 gift certificate from a local hobby store.

The fun starts at 7:30 PM, Friday, September 11, at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. Guests are always welcome! Hope to see you there!

Membership application forms will be available at the meeting, but you can download this two page form,  print it up, fill it out, and bring it to the meeting! That way you'll spend less time doing paperwork at the meeting and more time chatting with the rest of the members!
