One additional board member is still needed. If you would like to serve on the board, let us know. If you have a layout and are up for an operating session or layout visit, let us know about that as well.

Following breakfast, there will be a clinic presentation. A Zoom link will be emailed to all Division members several days prior to the meeting. If you're not a division member, email me at info@caseybartman.com and I will send you a link.

Our last meeting was held at the Golden Isle Model Railroad Club, in Kingsland, Ga. The club has a great layout that depicts the ACL from Jacksonville to Savanah (the A-line) in the transition era and is located in the old Kingsland depot. They are open most Saturdays for visitors to drop by.

Inspecting the layout

Time was spent explaining the Achievement Program to promote developing new modeling abilities. Many have operating home layouts so are already eligible for their Golden Spike awards.

Inspecting the layout

There was great discussion of what all would like to see in future events, mainly clinics, layout tours and operating sessions where possible. The next event is already being planned after the first of next year in the Savanah area with other events in the Charleston and Myrtle Beach areas later next year. The Gold Isle Club has already expressed interest in hosting another event late next year.

Watch for an updated directory of Division board members.
