    MoPac3092,
    I plan to have WigWag in the large classroom across from the lecture hall. That is the lower hallway of building C. There is No way I could get 16 tables in the gym. You must remember that those folks who have gym locations have been with us for years and years.

    The room that I am going to use for Wig Wag is directly accross the hallway from where Jim Wiggin will be presenting his workshops on painting. Also Jim and I have dicided that that room is a good location for the Trainboard get together since he will already be there.

    In addition, for the people involved in the composite N Trak layout in the gym, it will circulate them through the entire show as they wander down toward Wig Wag's location.

    One lession that I have learned in the years of producing this event is that laying the show is much like the old "Rubic's Cube" game. Just when you think that everything is settled, "boom" a landmine goes off.
    I was informed by the powers that be at the College that one of the rooms that I planned to use would not be available. It seems they are starting a new vocational program and will be using that room. By the time of the Train Show the equipment will be installed and there is no way we could use it for a layout display. OUCH!

    Diecast thing is still going. In fact they are adding a display of early farm equipment outside the building. The promoter tells me that they have confirmation of a 1928 Cat crawler tractor and someone is planning on bringing restored 1910 rock crusher to display. Only one of its kind that is known.

    Tell any friends that are into the die cast toy thing to come on over. One ticket gets both shows.
