Um you mean like this one...http://www.railroadprototypemodelers.org/Yep, lists all of last year's meets :-)
I tried to do this once. Any sort of clearing house for prototype modelers is a fail.
Everybody does their own meet their own way, and it works out great - and most of the
same people attend the meets! There's a clear lack of desire for even an informal,
loose association to coordinate date conflicts. I know... I tried to start it 14 years
ago. It was obvious in a short time that the committee we created was in effect, King
of Nothing. What we have now works great and that's all I ever wanted. I made the
mistake of being an enthusiastic promoter of something that didn't need promoting -
pretty much everybody on board already knew the drill. To those not on board / in the
choir, I was just a vocal Rivet Counter Advocate to point a finger at for ruining the
hobby. Another lesson learned in middle age. The important thing is the outcome, which
is what I wanted to happen all along - even though I had nothing to do with it and my
efforts probably did more harm than good, we got there.
