Winnipeg Model Railroad Club's first social distancing meeting was a success

Everything went very smoothly at the WMRC's first social distancing meeting of the year. This was also the club's first meeting of the season, which begins in September and ends in May. Members and the general public were advised via email and social media to respect social distancing measures and wear masks. 

The Charleswood Legion did a sterling job of sanitizing the tank room before the meeting. Chairs were spaced six feet apart, and everyone brought their own masks. Hand sanitizers and paper masks were available at a table by the entrance.  A new microphone was purchased so that everyone could hear. Two power point presentations put together by program director Dave Downie were well received.  

A clever touchless annual membership registration system was devised. A basket with envelopes containing the registration forms was placed on the table by the entrance. Members could then fill out the form, put their completed form and their cheque into the envelope, then place the envelope into another basket on a table on the other side of the room. 

Our next meeting will be held at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard on Friday, October 9 at 7:30 PM. Hope to see you there!
