New Item of Interest: Owls Head Transportation Museum Model Engineering Show
28 March 2015
The Owls Head Transportation Museum down east in Owls Head Maine put on a great model show in the spring. Check out Midcoast Model Festival at email@example.com . To this end I have spoken with Ron Ginger and ascertained that the museum could host a bus load of us from NEMES. I have also inquired at the Brush Hill bus company and found out the bus for a one day trip to Maine would cost us $2085.00 for a 55 seat coach like we have used to go to Cabin Fever.
The date of the show is Saturday, March 28 2015, time 9:30AM to 5:00PM. I have the bus pickup at Riverside MBTA station same as the Cabin fever trips in the past, here is the rub, pickup would be at 5:00AM returning at 10:00PM with an additional stop at the Park and Ride on RT 95 and 113 in Newburyport. The reason for the early departure is we should give the museum a full day of exhibition if they are reserving that mush space for us and it is a four hour trip. I have requested our favorite driver Mark Feldman. Mark enjoys the show but has to be put up in a motel for some time due to the length in time of the trip, this is covered in the cost of the bus.
The arrangements are for us to stop at Moody's Diner in Waldoboro ME for supper.
So with that said the price breakdown, including a tip for Mark, is as follows:
40 passengers $55.75 ea
30 passengers $74.50 ea
20 passengers $111.50 ea
I think we should not go lower than 30 passengers though we could probably use a smaller bus if we go that low with some savings.
Norm Jones and I have already reserved tables for ourselves but would move on to tables with the group if the trip comes about.
Now time is late. Norm is not going to be calling again and again to whip up passengers. We will discuss this at the meeting tonight and set a closing date for the checks to be in the hands of Rich Baker our treasure questions firstname.lastname@example.org
I might be able to interest some fellows from the Merrimack Valley Model Ship Builders club to go along with us from Newburyport.
Now I have done this part. I plan to get on the bus at Newburyport so we will need someone to take the bull by the horns and be at Riverside to check the passengers on and help load the bus, also we should keep our displays to a reasonable size due to the exhibition hall not being as large as Cabin Fever has been. Also the show has no venders so keep that in mind if your interest in the show has been to do some serious shopping.
Keep in mind that a lot of our members have moved to Maine and it is a nice reunion with them.
If you are a first time visitor to this site, please, take your time, look around and see what our group has to offer. We hope that you find things of interest and always welcome your comments and suggestions. Please feel free to contact the webmaster at email@example.com
