While we always have shows in the works, we currently have three shows nailed down for later this year and early next year.
Our annual America on Wheels Holiday Train Display will be back starting November 24th. This dislay is hosted by the America on Wheels museum in Allentown, PA. We have photos of our display there last year on Flickr.
We’re also returning to the Greenberg Train & Toy Show for their upcoming shows in Lebanon, PA (December 9-10, 2017, 10am-4pm) and York, PA (February 10-11, 2018).
We’ll have large town/train displays at all three of these shows. We hope to see you there!
Our August meeting is being hosted by Sam and Vicki Tauser this Saturday, the 12th. The address has been sent out in the meeting email. If anyone has not received it, please let me know and I'll get it to you. Here is a few meeting notes from Sam and Vicki.
For the 8/12 meeting at our house Sam and I will have lunch meats, chesse and rolls along with a salad for lunch/dinner. I will be making desert. If the weather permits, we'll have the meeting outside on the deck. We have a canopy and may need another one. I'll have small tables and chairs. After the meeting we will also be playing some kind of Nerf games. If they club members have any Nerf toys, have them bring them. Unfortunately, we didn't plan for a build challenge. Sorry. But if anyone one wants to build something to celebrate summer or summer games they can. We'll admire them by ooohing and awwing.
See you next Saturday.

The July meeting in Warminster Pa at the Learning with Bricks warehouse. Details were sent a few weeks ago.
It’s July, what better way to celebrate our independence than with “Fireworks!” So build something with a fireworks theme. There may even be a trophy.
Our next PennLUG meeting is scheduled for June 10th. The location had to be changed to Quakertown, PA.
Build challenge and other details were sent via forum mail to all forum members. Please RSVP if possible via the forums.
