The Board of Directors meets prior to the Division meeting.  The BOD meeting begins at 6:00 p.m.

Fall Model and Photo Contests will be held during the meeting.

Model contest entries do not have to be scratch-built models.  Super-detailed kits are welcome entries.  There are a number of categories, including motive power, revenue cars, non-revenue cars, passenger cars, cabooses, and structures.  Models may take first, second, or third place awards without earning merit awards.  Merit awards are given to those models which receive a score of 87.5 points or better.

Photo contests are held in conjunction with the model contests.  There are four categories -- B&W model, color model, B&W prototype, and color prototype.  Photos should be mounted on matte material.  Minimum print size is 5" x 7".  Minimum mount size is 8" x 10". A contest entry sheet must accompany each entry.
