      Tom, I'm trying to get a contingent from Wichita to come down for a few days but so far I haven't received much interest.  I'll keep trying.

      Alas, I've got the Narrow Gauge Convention in my back yard (literally) this September, so the NGRC is out for me.

       

      Later,

      I hope the sponsoring club gets a better turn out than is indicated here. Even if I were interested Tulsa is out of my travel range.

      It looks like there will be a contingent from the Sacramento Valley Garden Railway Society.  I'm looking forward to Tulsa.  I understand there are a lot of art deco buildings there.

      Sharon and I will be there. Hoping to get an eyeball with fellow LSC, MLS, and Marty's Alumni. We will be spending a lot of time at the NGRC 2019 booth. See you there.

      Michael

      Two months, Two weeks and a few days until the 2017 NGRC.....oooh I am so excited I could rip off David Letterman...so I think I will.

       

      Boomer's Top 10 Reasons to come to Oklahoma!!!!

       

      # 10 Oklahoma has no Major League Baseball Team, so I can wear my Texas Rangers hat and not have to make excuses for their horrible performance so far this season.

       

      # 9 Cimarron County in Oklahoma's panhandle is the only county in the United States that touches four other states: New Mexico, Texas (pretty sure it does this against it's will), Colorado and Kansas.

       

      # 8 Oklahoma boasts amazing geography including the worlds tallest official hill: Cavanal Hill at 1,999 feet and four mountain ranges: the Ouachita Mountains, the Arbuckle Mountains, the Wichita Mountains, and the Ozark Mountains. None of which breaks 5000 ft.

       

      # 7 Oklahoma created Route 66 when in 1927, businessman Cyrus Avery, created the first section of the famous highway between Tulsa and Amarillo. I will be driving this very length of highway....maybe I will meet Martin Milner along the way.

       

      # 6 Oklahoma is the home state of Reba McEntire...she's purty (and I hear she can sing) and at 61 she is the perfect pop icon for most garden railroaders.

       

      # 5 Oklahoma is also the birth place of Will Rogers...his claim that he never met a man he didn't like is proof that he was never a member of MLS.

       

      # 4 Oklahoma City is the headquarters of Hobby Lobby, it will be nice to see where my money has been going all these years.

       

      # 3 Oklahoma is the only state to be the basis for a Rogers and Hammerstein musical....okay we will call that one a draw.

       

      # 2 Rooster will not be attending the NGRC, but Boomer will...we will call that one a draw too.

       

      and the # 1 reason to  come to the NGRC in Tulsa....I look forward to shaking a few hands and meeting some of you cool cats in person!!!!!

       

      July 10 - 15.....Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain!!!!!!!

      We got a good group from Houston Area 'G' Gaugers going. NGRC is held at the time of our monthly meeting, so we held a campaign and will hold our meeting in Tulsa. I can not wait to see the railroads and say hello to friends.

      I got an IDEA!!!!!

       

      Lets have a LSC High Plains Drag and Brag.

       

      I am staying at the convention hotel. Renaissance Tulsa.

      Tuesday night July 11th. Meet in the Lobby at 7:00.

      Look for the sad caveman wearing the Texas Rangers hat...unless the boys are out of the cellar by then in which case I will be smiling form ear to ear.

       

      From there we can go to Dave and Busters or Fox and Hound. Both are close by and I am sure they will welcome all customers, even ones with trains.

       

      Anybody interested in this?

      Sounds like a plan to me. Since I'm part of the club putting it on, I might have duties to attend to.

      I'm easy to spot. Likely the only one there running around barefoot.
