Meeting at Constantine Hannaher’s house on July 26, 2003

Some “ Arctic ” parts inspired Tom to build.

We got together at the home of host Constantine Hannaher for a meeting on Saturday, July 26, 2003. Participants in attendance: Tom Cook, Christina Hitchcock, Abe Friedman, Constantine Hannaher, Mike Harrod.

Christina sets her eye on the task; her fingernails will prove useful in separating the label from the backing.

Our final six containers from the first run of labels.

Constantine takes apart a few constructions.

Tom gets inspiration from some of the parts.

Michael laid out track to the extent he could, given a tray of only curve track. Christina gave the alternate model for 8455 Constantine had built a try. Tom had a DCC programmed RCX to attach to the loop and Michael and Christina and Tom had trains to run. Abe was delayed a bit. Constantine applied the final six of our first run of stickers for a train club container swap next month, and Christina did a beautiful job cutting out the photo-quality stickers of the blue and gold WamaLTC logo for the final application. The chart of our container production has already been updated. Christina took our ambassador car (still advertising the 2002 edition of the event) for display at BrickFest 2003 and the new banner for use at the Road Show. Constantine had a quantity of loose elements and decrepit assemblies which finally tempted Tom into building “ Arctic ” train cars: two in blue and one in gray (this one turned out somewhat wider than 6 studs). Abe built a brown gecko and took our six swap containers for distribution, in a manner to be determined, at BrickFest.
