Non-Rail Participant Information

Welcome to the Capitol 400!!
Co-Conductors: Judy Vivion and Diana Haverberg
Come in to visit us in the Project Linus room when you arrive.

Friday afternoon/Friday evening:

Pick up your Capitol 400 tote bag and personalize it yourself anytime in the Non-Rail Room. Ideas and permanent markers will make each bag different.

Epic Systems Tour Update: We regret that Epic has refused to provide the previously offered tour of their campus. We are working hard to find a replacement but may not have time to post it here. Please ask at the Registration Desk about a Non-Rail tour which would presumably take place at the same time, 2:30pm on Friday.

We will have an easy colorful craft project, and supplies will be available for Project Linus during any free time.

Saturday Programs:

Miniatures presentation by Peg Eklund, past president of the Madison chapter of the National Association of Miniatures Enthusiasts.

We will join the Rail participants for their clinic: O. Winston Link: Photographing a Real “Model Railroad” by Tom Garver

Project Linus presentation with Barb Stock, representing the Madison area Chapter of Project Linus. Learn about the ways that locally made blankets are distributed each month to bring joy to children. If you have free time during the convention, join in the fun of tying fleece blankets or sewing quilts for this worthwhile project.

“O, Canada! Best Blooms of British Columbia” with master gardener Roy Anne Moulton. Enjoy the beauty of private and public gardens, with information about garden design and history of the area.

Following these programs, please stay to chat while working on Project Linus, finish your tote bag design, or visit nearby points of interest in Madison or Middleton. If you missed the Friday Epic tour, it is a 20-minute drive and you can do a self-guided tour up to 4:00 P.M. on Saturday.

We will see you at the Saturday evening banquet!
