The MCoR 2019 Regional Convention
June 20 - 23, 2019
Website Updates - May:
There were several updates done to the website recently. Two more Clinics were added to Saturday, filling all clinic spots on Friday and Saturday. MMR, Dave Roeder will present clinics on custom decaling and building passenger cars and cabooses. Both on Saturday morning. Besides adding Mr Roeders's clinics to the "SCHEDULE" page, a link was added on the Hunterline Make It 'n Take It clinic on Friday evening. The form gives info on the clinic, and tools you need to build the bridge.
The "CONTEST ROOM" tab has been added. Not only does it give the open hours of the room, it also gives the rules for submission into the competition.
We updated the Registration form to include the excursion; The History of Railroading in Wichita, the price is $35.00.
May 28th is the last day to guarantee the special convention rate. If you stay at the Doubletree, it includes breakfast. They have even given us a 3-day period pre, or post Convention where you can stay and still get the special convention rate.
Finally: Tickets for Saturday Nights Silent Auction are going to be available during the entire Convention at the Registration Site.
