Looking for Clinicians!
NMRA TLR members / Folks interested in TLR activities,

The Dakota Southeastern Division (DSED) is in full swing with planning the 2020 TLR Convention - "Sioux Empire Special" - in Sioux Falls, May 14-17.

Thursday Evening (May 14th) and Friday (May 15th) we plan on having numerous clinics covering a wide array of interests. Towards that goal:
We need your ideas, desires, and of course willing clinicians. We are looking for modeling topics of all sorts, prototypical based, and also some clinics for non-rail participants.

While the convention is still months away, we need to keep up the planning efforts. Even if you do not yet know if you will make it to the convention, we'd appreciate tentative commitments from clinicians and ideas at this time.

Please e-mail Richard Dahl at or call at (612) 720 5850 with your thoughts.

Happy modeling,
Richard Dahl for the DSED convention planning committee
