In January, we host our Model Railroad School put on by Division volunteers and open to the public. It is held in place of our regular January meeting.
In February, we have our regular Division meeting. Some of this meeting time is devoted to preparing volunteers for the Mad City Model Railroad Show held at the Alliant Center in Madison. The show is usually held on the third weekend of February. We need "all hands on deck" for this show and it can't happen without the many volunteers from the Division.
