Meeting at Greg Kramer’s house on July 6, 2002

We got together at the home of host Greg Kramer on Saturday, July 6, 2002. Participants in attendance: Abe Friedman, Greg Kramer, Roy Gal, Claudia Coles, Constantine Hannaher.

We assembled a set of containers to swap with other LTCs in a program inspired by an international organization of LEGO® train clubs using bulk brick from the LEGO® Shop At Home Service and some parts supplied at the last minute by Roy and Claudia. We applied stickers designed and printed by Constantine. Because of the different grades of paper involved, this was no simple matter. We packed up the containers and an ambassador/envoy car previously built by Constantine, and these were to be sent to KK Quah of the Greater Florida LEGO Train Club who would display them at Bricks in the Sand .

Update:

Our ambassador/envoy car made it back from Florida in great shape.

Following is the disposition of our containers, to the best of our knowledge. Yes, we did number them individually. Our containers need no “ fixing ” regarding their top surface. Just always make sure to put them on top . ;-)
