Today we held the Model Railways for a Day Seminar at the AMRA Clubrooms in Zillmere. Over 30 people attended on top of about a dozen presenters, the Seminar’s organising Committee and workers from the host Club AMRA – around 50 people total. While the day dawned very wet on the southside when we left home, when we got to the venue, it was actually fine, with patches of blue sky. But that didn’t last long, as it soon rained quite heavily, between intervening patches of light sprinkles and no rain at all. One of our Tuesday Nighters whom was also presenting lived literally around the corner from the Clubrooms and after we all unloaded our gear for the day, three of us drove our cars around to his place and the four of us all walked back to the AMRA clubrooms, in an attempt to reduce car parking congestion in the grounds.
I think Modellers Warehouse, who did a presentation during the day, and also provided some materials for some of the sessions, may have sold a bit of stock. Which is really good news.
I await to received feedback from the attendees to see if this Seminar has hit the mark, and any suggestions to improve future seminar days.
Following are some photos from the day. It is now that just realise that I did not get a photo of all the dioramas before they were claimed. Bugger!
