I can make a meeting the week of the 15th. Later in the day and evenings work best for me with the real estate showings especially on weekends.

Everyone,  I will re-tool the design while I am on vacation based on the responses I got.  Can we set up a meeting for the week of the 18th?  Also, Bob, when I send out the diagram, we need to assess if there are any special DCC considerations.  I have installed a Walthers Built up turntable on my return loop and it supposedly handles the reversing circuit issue but let me know what you think.

I would like to add 10’ of yard to the layout however, I need to know how late the room is open for setup. My new job going well but a couple of things I cannot control is my start and finish times.I may be done as early as 3:00 in the afternoon or as late as 6:30 putting me there at 7:00 pm and needing at least an hour to get it set up. Also I have no idea where I am going the next day until my return to the plant. From the conversations we have had so far, my thought is that we do not need more than one yard in the layout and if I can add my yard it would leave room for more modules to switch. Saturday morning teardown is not a problem. Mike L.

So, lets start with a confirmed head count for modules.
Geoff is in for 6' plus ??/
Brian H. are you in?
Dave and Rod are in
Mike R. I know you were in.
Who else do we have?
As I have said I am completely swamped but I can at least confirm the layout in CAD.

I remain buried with work and family commitments.  We really need to have another meeting to finalize stuff but I am maxed for at least two weeks more.

Hi Mike, and everyone else.  The schedule is for us to set up Wednesday night and Thursday morning, operations Thursday afternoon and Friday, and possibly Thursday night and Friday night.  Teardown is Saturday morning.  We have to be out of the room by 1:00 or so.  The prototype tours are on Saturday morning, so my modules will be down by 8:30.

I think John's operations plan is for trains to leave the yard(s) and switch industries on one person's modules, then return to the yard.  An individual need not be at the layout the whole time, and can remove equipment from the layout when he's not there.  John can provide further details.

The layout room will not be locked at night.  The hotel claims they'll still be secure, but I suggest we don't leave anything too valuable at the layout overnight.

I will confirm the schedule with the convention management and let the group know of confirmation or c hanges to the above.
