Presented by Steve Miazga

Presented by Dave Nelson Frugal Modeler
Dave Nelson has been "The Frugal Modeler" columnist for the NMRA Midwest Region's "Waybill" since 2009. He has written about modeling ideas, methods, and techniques that are generally fun and easy to do, with the main goal being a minimal expenditure -- preferably no expenditure! This clinic will highlight some of those methods and ideas, with a hint of Frugal Modeler columns to come.
Presented by Otto Dobnick

As you pull into the Four Points Sheraton Hotel parking lot drive past the Front Doors and continue on down this side drive (you'll actually be coming from back to front in this picture).
You'll see on the right this overhang with "Conference Center" upon it - that's our entrance. (If you happen to park out front by the Front Doors you can still get to our rooms - it's just a much longer walk with stairs involved.)
Upon entering the building (the left side of this photo) our 3 rooms will be in the left corner (the center of this photo). Just to the left the column (the center of this picture) are the bathrooms and water fountains. (Yes I wrote something other then bubblers.....;)
