3rd Annual Frisco Convention in Springfield Springfield, Missouri has accepted the challenge to host the 2011 Frisco Convention. We have chosen Saturday, September 17 for the date. The location will be the Frisco Building, former home for the railroad's Springfield headquarters. Charlie Dischinger, Louis Griesemer, Ray Wells, Ron White and Ron Williams will be your hosts. Our initial discussion suggests that we can accomodate 75 people. Activities will likely include operating sessions on Friday night for early arrivals and perhaps additional sessions on Sunday morning. Railroads to be determined. Possible clinics being discussed include (unofficial titles) Switching the MFA Mill in Aurora, Traffic Flow through the Springfield Yard, What Happened to the Frisco Museum Materials? Ozark Feed Mills, Kerr-McGee Tie Plant. The actual lineup will be announced later once it is finalized. Louis has some rarely, if ever seen by the public, films of the Frisco in action. We would like attendees to bring models for display. Space will be allocated for swap tables. Door prizes are being planned. We think there will be a catered lunch and dinner at the facility since there is a restaurant located in the Frisco Building. If you are interested in attending you can send an initial indication that you plan to be here to me off line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
