Jeff and BAZboys,
Thank You for planning/hosting this one. After Anaheim, I am really looking forward to NTS 2011. I missed NTS this year due to unexpected family committments. I definitely don't want to miss another one, especially Sacramento with all the great train realted activities in the vicinity.

Subject: [Z_Scale] Countdown to NTS 2011 - Sacramento, CA July 8-10

August, 2010 - We now have 8 months before Modular Layout applications must be in for the National Train Show. 8 months. For those you working on them, please get them "show" ready AND show tested by then. We can't count on anyone building one after that and modules have to run well, especially those that elect to put turnouts on the mains and more importantly, grades.
By January 1, I hope to have all modules accounted for, from those that can make the show (or at least their modules), without ANY doubt. I have the ZoCal folks and of course us BAZ BoyZ. I'll need a commitment count from the Oregon and Washington (state) groups plus any of those mid-west, south, north or easterners planning, er, commiting to come.
No modules? Not a member of a group? How about bringing some BYOZ items. Table top displays are great, whether a loop-de-doo, diorama or some other way to incorporate Z.
For more info, see the site: http://www.x2011west.org/trainshow.html.
Also, there is a side NMRA convention, Extra X2011 being held from July 3-9, 2011. See the site: http://x2011west.com/index.html for more info on the layout and proto tours, museums, etc.
