The Convention will hold a raffle and auction for individual railroad and model railroad related items. With this, there will be a variety of items to bid on. There will be opportunities to view the items up for bid prior to the final drawing of winners. Check with the Registration Table for information. Bidding will be by tickets purchased at the Registration Table. To bid on an item, you should drop one or more tickets (no limit) into a cup located with each item. The raffle will finish with a drawing for each item at the Saturday night Banquet. You must be in attendance to win!
A Project Linus activity is being held to make blankets for children in local hospitals or otherwise in need of comfort. The onsite activity will accommodate quilters, knitters, crocheters and those with no sewing experience. Participants can make single layer fleece blankets that can be completed by tying or crocheting around the edges on-site or during free time at the convention. Limited yarn and
supplies will be available at the convention center. Quilt kits, two sewing machines, and some batting and backing fabric will be available for sewists and quilters in the non-rail room. Donations of quilted, crocheted or knit blankets will also be welcomed. For blanket requirements see www.Projectlinuskc.org/blankets.
If there is interest, we can do some outings to local quilt shops or other local sites. If you have questions or suggestions contact Margo Humenczuk at
The Non-Rail Activities will be held in the Hotel’s Wyandotte Room.
