    Got a chance to preview some of the presentations and videos that will be shown during the convention 9am-whenever Saturday, September 17th, Frisco Building, Springfield, MO. In a word...WOW! And the door prizes! There are lots of them and one is valued at nearly $300. Hope you've got your registration in by now. The deadline for shirts and caps has past, however. Ron Williams

    Only one week to go and I can hardly wait to see lots of Frisco Folks!

    It will be a terrific weekend of model railroad operations, swap meet, cool presentations, tours, lots of information exchanged and great people. The weather has made a delightful change toward fall (cooler). The event will take place at the "crossroads of the Frisco", and in the former Frisco General Office Building (GOB). Our hosts are all local Frisco Folks and modelers. I suspect it will be another don't miss it event for the books and a favorite event of all who attend!

    It is not too late to book your trip, get a hotel room and enjoy the fun in America's heartland! Remember for "Folks and Freight the Frisco is Great!"

    Hope to see you all there!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Okay... need to ask: Where is this Frisco Building in relation to the hotel? Is the Frisco Building where the meet will actually take place? (I thought it was going to be in a conference room at the Hotel!)

    Andre,

    The hotel is south, across the street from the Frisco Building.

    The address of the Frisco Building is 3253 E. Chestnut Expressway, Springfield, MO 65802. The Greenstay Hotel and Suites address is 222 N. Ingram Mill Rd., Springfield, MO 65802. The hotel sits south of East Chestnut Expressway, the Frisco building is on the north side. Both are west of US 65 and east of the Willow Springs Subdivision. This area is on the east central portion of Springfield.

    It is an easy walk if you want to leave the car in the hotel parking lot. The hotel is behind the Hardee's restaurant. Please see the Google map. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=sprin...068&sspn=43.172547,65.214844&vpsrc=6&t=h&z=17

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    They're basically across the street from each other--catty cornered.

    Looks like a big building. Any specific entrance or just go in the front (door facing chestnut)?

    Ethan,

    I suspect we will use the main entrance that faces Chestnut Expressway on the south side of the building.

    Frisco Folks gathering at the hotel will most likely see other Frisco Folks at breakfast. Latch on to a new or old friend and join the group. Just look for all those fine Frisco Folks and follow the crowd.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    I'm not going to be at the hotel. I'm going to be arriving that morning by car, and hope to be there by 8.
