Yesterday I attended the Arctic Run show at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. Wow, it was a much larger show than I would have expected for a town of 50,000 in the middle of Wisconsin on a foggy, dreary, Packer Playoff Sunday. Lots of clubs in attendance, some nice portable layouts. Madison N-Gineers were there, talked to some nice folks there and will probably join. Several outstanding HO layouts, a very cute Z scale one in an old Samsonite suitcase. The Soo Line Historical and Technical Society was there, I got to meet Fred Firkus of that org and bought a few cool things like an issue of their magazine with Part 1 of the History of the P-Line. I could have spent a lot more time there and DEFINITELY more money had I had some, but had to get home in time to watch the Packers stink up the field in Atlanta. :-(

Definitely a show to attend next year.
