We unloaded the fiddle yard and corners and other bits and pieces from the van on Monday night, Duncan having returned from Stuttgart. Wednesday night we got it all out again to put up a (small) N-club circuit.
We were slightly low on numbers, but there were plenty of trains running. A number of new purchases from Germany did the rounds, as did Paul’s Japanese stock.
Jon, Derek (the Apps) and Ian made a quick trip to St Joseph’s school to look at the options for catering at next year’s exhibition. Derek will measure up this week, and I hope to get a first plan out soon. Our new venue has the advantages of being on one level, with an on-site car park, and rooms that are probably easier to plan than at the Methodist Hall.
We will be meeting again next Thursday, as this meeting was put back a week. We will also be holding meetings on the planned dates of 18 December and 2 January – the members present felt that few of us would be away, and we should keep to the same dates.
