I plan on making the get-together in August. I'm currently doing two
weeks of 24x7 on-call for others, so they owe me!
Questions I should have raised before last night's meeting -
Question 1: Any plans to hire a hall to show slides/movies/videos
/pictures on that Saturday nite? I'll kick in for the rent, as I'm
sure others would. Those of you who have seen the stuff before will
probably yawn a lot, but most of it will be new to someone. Me, at
Question 1a: Anyone bringing a 35mm projector? If so, what kind of
trays will it accept? I'm planning on bringing my slides, so I could
bring my Kodak, which only takes Carousel trays.
Question 2: Where and when do we meet intially on Saturday? The
Rail Park in Gloversville? The Adirondack Park marker at Sacandaga
Park? Randy's basement?
Question 3: For the picnic: what about a special tee shirt
commemorating the First Annual Meeting of the FJ&G Railroad Barbeque
and Marching Society. The marching? Hey, we gotta walk part of the
rail trail, don't we? My thought was to have a high-quality picture
of #8 as the centerpiece, with appropriate lettering indicating
its 100th birthday, plus the date(s) for the First Annual Meeting. I
wouldn't want to undertake this one without firm orders, though.
Question 4: Wouldn't Gino's stylized Bullet Car design make a great
limited-edition tee? Changing the heading to "FJ&G Bullet" makes the
railroad name obvious. My stepson just had thee dozen done locally
for his martial arts studio (3 colour) and selling them at $15
each,his break even point was 19 shirts. The more colours, the
higher the setup costs. We could do this on spec, offering it
through the eGroup listing, Randy, Gino, and other outlets you can
think of. Mail order would be an additional $4 or $5for P&H.
Let me know what ya' think.
Glenn & Everyone,
I plan to ask if we can use the library for displays and showing of
videos, movies, slides, etc. I think the library is closed on
Saturdays during July & August, so I'm hoping it won't be a problem.
The advantage of using the library is that we lock everything up and
leave. The disadventage using the library is that they don't have any
AC. The middle of August has been known to be rather warm, so if
anyone has any other location in mind, please let me know.
I don't own a 35mm projector, but I'm sure we can come up with one. I
think either or both Paul & Randy have one.
We could meet at either the box car or the library, or wherever we
wind up setting up our displays.
I think the T shirt, or better yet, a golf shirt, is a good idea. The
golf shirt might be too expensive though. If enough are interested,
we shoiuld be able to have one made.
I don't think you would be able to sell two different shirts. Randy
has had problems selling out his hat.
Let me have your input.
