Meeting Information
See below for post meeting information.

Update - 02/13/2004 - Northwest Vista College has agreed to lend us the Banquet Room in the College Commons building. Time has been discussed below. This is located about 5 minutes from my house, so room for you out-of-towners is available on a first come first serve basis.

Pre Meeting Information
I have come up with a preliminary draft of the layout for this meeting. Please take a look at the PNG image. Please let me know what space you would like or what changes you would like made. When refering to the diagram I would like to use letters for the columns and numbers for the rows. For example, the upper left corner section of track is A1-B2.
Please tell me which road plates you will be using and where so I can put them in.

I was thinking that the blue plate table could be put on wheels so we could roll the sea in and out to get around the layout. Also, we could run a track to go over an inside section for the bridge builders out there. I thought it would be a good idea to have the bridges on the inside so no one messes with them. Just in case they fall, we don't have to look everywhere for pieces.

Location is still being worked out. Time is from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Saturday and 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Sunday. I was planning on having the public access from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Saturday and from Noon - 2:00 PM on Sunday. Input is more than welcome. Also, we are going to attempt to inform the media.

We should be hearing from San Antonio Express-News soon. Also, there might be some TV crews there. Be sure to wear your t-shirts.

Monorail is allowed and encouraged in the layout with the following height requirements. 15 bricks in height in all locations except when coming in and out of a station then it can go to 5. Please let me know where you would like your track to be and I'll figure out where it goes on the layout map.

Please check back here as any changes will be posted here.
