      I caught Tom at Marty's once actually wearing shoes.  I even took a photo of it, but he put some bad juju on my camera and deleted the photo.

      The Model Contest

      I am a little surprised by the turn out, I expected a lot more participation.

       

       

      This one below is mine.

       

       

      It was listed in the rules that all entries were to be anonymous but the entry forms were left lying out the whole time with the names on them. I had kept this build quiet except for some updates on chat but I guess it does not matter now. You can find more pics and the entire build log here: https://cibolalmrr.com/structures/moonshiners-shack/

       

       

      Winner to be announced tomorrow. I guess.

       

      BBQ Dinner

      Thank God no baloney made an appearance. We had Pulled Pork, Sliced Beef, Grilled Chicken, Coleslaw, Beans, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad and Corn Bread. For Desert there was apple and peach cobblers.

       

      My compliments to the Pitmaster.... an easy A+++

       

       

      We also had some first rate entertainment. members of the Tulsa Metro Sound Ladies Chorus graced us with a review of their latest efforts. They were very good.

       

       

      and now more layouts.

      Boomer, your model entry is stellar! Your level and attention to detail is incredible. I cannot imagine you will not win with honors. I would be terrified to put it outside. It's beautiful. Good luck!

      LSC chalks up another win.

       

      First Place: Structure!!!

       

       

       

      Well NGRC 2017 is in the books. An absolutely amazing job by the Tulsa crew. You guys and dolls ROCK!!!!!

       

      LSC members Dennis Rayon and Tom Ruby were each recognized individually at the closing banquet for their contributions.

       

      I will post the rest of my layout pictures in the albums section and leave a link here next week.

       

      Atlanta had people here promoting NGRC 2018 as did Portland for NGRC 2019.

      Nobody presented for 2020 but there is an ugly rumor from the New Mexico Garden Railroaders that it might be.........

       

      Albuquerque.

      Remember, you heard it here first.

       

      Say your prayers and save your pennies there may  be an opportunity on the horizon to eat BBQ and see Boomer in his native habitat!!!!!!

      We had a professional trained NMRA judge on the contest. He told us that it takes an EXTREMELY good model to score a hundred points. One model scored 87, the lowest of all the others was 107.

       

      This barefoot okie bows to your talent

      Never had any doubt Boomer. It is an excellent structure and a tribute to your modeling skills. You clearly deserve the award! Great!
