2015 Central Ohio RPM
The 2015 Central Ohio RPM is planned for April 23rd-25th at Marion Union Station, Marion, Ohio.
This meet follows the usual RPM practices of model displays, clinics, door prizes and fellowship. Where we differ is that we hold the meet in a former Depot that is located within the intersection of 3 sets of double track mainlines. 2 of these sets are CSX while 1 is NS.
We have movie/slide shows each night of the meet and a meet closing cookout that is a GREAT time.
The festivities start on Thursday the 23rd around noon or so. This is when be being setup. After set up there is time for fanning in the area and then we gather for dinner at The Shovel, a local restaurant that is conveniently located right across the parking lot from the Marion Union Station.
After the dinner we will gather for our first of three slide/movie shows.
The fun really kicks off at 900AM on Friday and goes until 500PM when will adjourn for dinner. They are plenty of choices within the local area Around 7 or so we will gather for slides/movies again.
We have the same schedule on Saturday with door prizes being taken care of after lunch, around 1PM or so. You must be present to claim your door prize.
After the meet closes, around 5 pm or so, we have a tear down and cleanup session followed by an extra fare, $6.00, cookout. Once the cookout out is complete we will have the last of our 3 slide/movie shows. If you have movies/slides that you would like to share, please feel free to bring them along. We do have a digital projector and a lap top available for those that wish to present a digital presentation.
We are also looking for folks to present clinics. Again, as I mentioned above, we do have the equipment for a digital presentation and actually prefer that they are presented digitally. Clinicians get free admission to the meet.
Admission if $20.00 for the weekend and all proceeds, after expenses, go to the Marion Union Station Association. You can simply show up and The Warden, my wife, Robin Blake, will be able to handle registration at the door.
Please contact me, Denis Blake at dblake7@... for any more information.
We hope to see you there.
Denis, Robin, JP and Kevin.
