    • Ric and all. I sent Half price banners the posted pictures of the original signs as displayed. They sent a link to proofs that showed a close approximation of the lettering used in the originals but did not include the track in the logo not the RR crossing back ground. The drag and brag sign will need to be replaced if the show host hotel changes.

      Gents I apologize to you all. I looked into duplicating the signage pictured in the Alcove use cheap paper signs at close to the same size. Price quoted was $185.00 which is just a bit steep for my blood.

       

      David, this place has (for example) a 2' x 8' vinyl banner for under $50:

      I'd be willing to chip in, and arrange the printing if needed; but do you or Ric have the artwork? 

       

      I don't have anything with me in Florida, because original plans were to get back to Carlyle, before heading to York.  Original art work was done by Martin, out of Texas.  All I can suggest is be general in your descriptions, so it can be used for multiple years.  Bob, the BOD, will probably give you permission for art work.

    • Anyone coming to either/or/both Alcove and/or Drag & Brag, please prepare at least an index card to display with it on the "Drag & Brag Table" in the Alcove for the display. It also helps at the D&B when people ask "Who built that?"

    • Atta boy Lou, thanks for arranging all that. 

      Hollywood's getting the banner (and we'll chip in).

      So, The Last Alcove is a go.

      See you guys there!

    • Well, just had a call, and we are locked in for 2 tables and 10 chairs in "The Alcove".

      The Show Car will be a 3 bay Conrail hopper with metal wheels and 4 different numbers.

      There will be t shirts and sweat shirts, graphics are being drawn with the theme of a train going away to signify leaving York.

    • There will supposedly be a show car, but there is no word of a t-shirt yet. I'm glad I was able to snag a shirt last year. I really liked the graphics.

    • OK, I just sent off the request for tables and chairs in "The Alcove" as a representative of Large Scale Central as an Exhibitor. Will let you know if I get a response.

       

      NEW TOPIC: Anybody hear of a Show Car or T Shirt?

    • Way to pick up the ball guys, many thanks.  Had no thought about the signs until the other day.

    • With Cliffs lead I got the signs for the alcove on order and will have them there for whatever you want to do with them

    • Dave Marconi was once famous for his "Upside-down" pineapple cup cakes...but has lost his fame by never providing them again.

          John;  you might like to contact him and get his description of them, and provide a dozen or more ...you might become the "Pastry King" of the show...!!

      I guess we'll need some new signs for the ALCOVE.  Sorry, but all that is in storage in Carlyle, Illinois and we are coming straight from Florida.  The "Drag and Brag" is scheduled for the new dates in the Susquehanna Room and all this was verified by our BOD contacting me.  Be there or be  square.

      I intend to be there. What does everyone want the young pastry cook to bring? Haha (Besides a loco or something similar....)

      Cash !

      You said that about the last show! 

      I was thinking more along the lines of something sweet to share.

       

      You will need the cash if you go to the early bird get-together ( they will try to get the new kid to buy the first round )

      Fun time in the hotel grille / bar area, chatting it up with large scale RR friends.

      No it's just easy some times to have the cash ..you some times save..

       

      Haha! Not sure why it says I'm leading it, maybe because I posted the event notice? 

       

      John, you do donuts or pastry?  Mmm....

      BD may have the art work. I copied the two pics on page 7 in this thread and showed them that Cliff. So I'm good for an under $100.00 price tag and it can be paper if it's only 1-2 days use

      That's a good point. We shall see about the early bird social. I'm not one for drinking.

      I didn't say you ..

      You will have a great time..
