Springtime in the Lower Mainland is Beautiful
The weather pretty much everywhere is frightful right now. But soon spring will be here, and so will the Railway Modellers Meet of BC being held May 3rd to 5th at Simon Fraser University's Burnaby Campus. Take a well deserved break from the winter weather and bring in Spring with the Railway Modellers Meet. On top of the great clinics, displays and layouts, you can see the scenic wonders of southern BC.
The views from the SFU campus are amazing, and you are close to everything in the region. While you are taking part in the meet, your family members will be busy taking in the view, visiting the many attractions in the region and enjoying the fact that the snow is long gone!
Simon Fraser University has comfortable and inexpensive accommodations for both out of town visitors and those from the region who prefer to stay on site during the meet. Rates start at just $41 per night, which is an amazing value. Regular rooms and suites are available. The rooms are just steps away from the meet, and there are many dining options at SFU as well. Please go to the accommodations page here to book your stay.
Don't delay, there are only a limited number of spaces available, and they fill up quickly. The discounted rate for the Railway Modellers Meet ends on April 3rd, so book today.
This year's meet will feature clinics and presentations in comfortable new spaces that feature theater style seating and state of the art presentation equipment. These are newly renovated rooms that also feature handicapped access. These spaces are specifically designed with great sightlines and acoustics, so the clinic experience will be greatly enhanced for audience members. The RMMBC committee is very excited to be able to use these classrooms for the clinic and keynote presentations. Be a part of the fun and learn something new!
This year's layout tour will be in the Surrey and Langley area, which is home to a wide range of great layouts. Whether you are interested in O or HO scales, freelance, proto-freelance or prototype modelling, there is something for you on this year's tour. We are continuing to add more layouts to the tour; so check back often at http://railwaymodellersmeetofbc.ca/node/3 for more details!
