Daylight Division Summer Meet

We hope you can join us for a fun-filled day of activities, including clinics, model and photo contests, layout tours, door prizes, the "World Famous" Daylight White Elephant Auction (well, WE know about it!), and a short business meeting.

Something new this meeting: Chris Palermo, Pacific Coast Region President will be joining us. Chris very much desires to have a discussion about the Region, the Division, and the 2021 Regional Convention in Fresno.

Our host for this meet is the South Coast Railroad Museum. Be sure to visit their website.
