The Mt. Vernon and Oak Harbor clinics are joining forces to bring you the first-ever joint clinic event. This will replace the normally scheduled May clinics at Mt. Vernon and Oak Harbor.
This event will be a “multiple demonstrations” format. Experienced modelers will demonstrate various aspects of model railroading. You will be free to roam and decide which demonstrations to observe and ask questions. Some may offer “hands on” opportunity.
10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the
Mt Vernon Senior Center, 1401 Cleveland Avenue, Mt Vernon, WA
Coffee and snacks will be available, bring a brown bag for your lunch. A dining area will be available for eating, drinking and general social gathering. A list of nearby eateries will be available.
A swap table will be available if you have items to sell, trade or give away.
There will be a model display table for you to display your diorama or DPM structure projects from your clinic. Other model railroad items are welcome.
Table space will be available if you want to bring a project to work on.
