Oean City Show: The show went
well. We will keep the sheets and wash them for next year. Ed and
Bob worked on the Thomas power packs. The packs worked well. Next
year the packs will be redesigned to be less visible. We agreed
on replacing the tool box, as the current one is broken.
Ed suggested we get track power connectors and pre-wire them to
save on setup time. Also discussed was the use of rubber bands instead
of wire ties to hold the track sections together.
We discuss moving Thomas to the other side of the stage to give
them more room. Discussion tabled for later.
We all agreed that this show
