    Nope. Can you host it outside and give us the URL?

    Update!
    We are set for an afternoon of model railroading at Northlandz.
    If you would like to join us, please note the requirement to RSVP in advance.
    If you have a module that you would like to bring, mention that in the email message.
    I am not sure how many, if any, modules will show up.

    For the time being, it was recommended to focus on the Free-Mo N aspect but we can certainly start and learn from the T-Track standards to get going and practice.
    I hope to see and meet a few fellow Nscale.net-ters and enthusiasts.

    Please use flyer email contact for questions and RSVP.

    Please tell me this worked
    If I reduce file size any more, it is unreadable...

    I don't really have a site I can host from. I don't want it in my portfolio site...

    Default **reminder**

    Was hoping there would be a bit more response. At least a couple of regional N scalers with curiosity(?). A good handful have RSVP'ed.

    I, for one, see some value in at least the social benefits of a coordinated modular effort. Perhaps overestimating reciprocal thoughts...

    It does seem the term "club" carries a bit of a pre-conceived concept. I have been turned off by group politics/drama myself. Perhaps "GROUP" is a better description?
    The Free-Mo movement does appear to be a bit looser(?) on the "organized" aspects of the traditional club.
    It will be hard enough to agree on guidelines and druthers for any size group. Perhaps, starting small may be a good way to start. As pointed out by a more experienced club modeler, even 1 person can start the ball rolling.

    For anyone even remotely curious, the offer stands. You get one free admission for registering with the flyer email contact.
    If nothing else, I would genuinely like to meet any/and/or/all of you.

    I can see the flyer now. I will need to check the calendar and see what else we have going on that weekend. Northlandz is a neat place, and it sounds like fun. I look forward to eventually being able to go to train shows again too. Hopefully by the summer.

    Reminder: Open House is one week away.

    As a follow up, has anyone been unable to reach out at the listed email address?
    At least 2 people have said they had problems with the RSVP email.
    Not sure what that could be due to.

    If still considering coming, try to reply via email before Thursday, April 22.
    It is important that we have your name on a list for front end ticketing.
    I want to get a final head count and email a rough agenda, even though an informal gathering.

    Just shot you an email. I somehow missed this notice each and every time you posted about it. Glad I saw it today.

    Cheers,

    Anyone who RSVP'ed,

    Thank you.
    I sent a longwinded confirmation email.
    Please let me know if you did NOT receive it.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks for setting up the meeting at Northlandz today. What a setup that is! Overwhelming doesn't begin to describe it. Sorry I had to duck out early, but I'm interested in future get togethers. There were a nice group of people today. I don't know how much I can contribute, since I'm new to this and helping out at Northlandz would likely be an issue for me as I live 1+ hrs away, but further meetings are still of interest to me.

    As a suggestion for staying in touch with one another, a different, unrelated group I'm in uses Google Groups for regular communication. It might be a good alternative to Facebook as my other group had members hesitant about using Facebook too. Thanks again!

    Cheers,
    Rich

    Thanks @NorthernJerseyRR

    Group Update:

    We had a productive meeting yesterday at Northlandz.
    Officially, 10 people RSVP'd and 10 came out. A diverse group from new modelers, returning and long time modelers. A few very experienced HO guys involved with modeling for a 40+ years.
    Discussing a wide range of related topics that included improvements to Northlandz, how a club could benefit this display, value of FreeMo-N, where to go next.

    We're still exploring where we will go from here. If you are interested in joining the discussion, please email us at the address in the posted flyer above.

    It was great to meet fellow modelers, a few Nscale.net-ers and share ideas about this opportunity.

    We will be doing it again sometime.

    I just want to thank Steve for putting this together. Interesting and challenging situations on both fronts. I'm curious to see where the chips fall.
