As John mentioned in his post, these will not be competing events, but complementary on the same day.
Here my idea for a small challenge: who will attract more attendees?
: I am very excited to see everybody on October
: 28. The paperwork has been filed. It will
: be great to see everybody again.

: SMSC's New England and Mid-Atlantic chapters
: are pleased to invite all collectors to
: their 2017 "mini-meeting" at the
: U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Museum,
: scheduled to coincide with the NORCAL
: group's West Coast "Mini SMSC
: Meeting" on October 28. No competition
: intended here- both events are
: complementary, intended to make it easier
: for collectors on either coast to avoid long
: airport lines, expenses, and other
: cross-country travel hassles.
: This will be an excellent opportunity to
: visit one of the nation's leading maritime
: museums. Located at King's Point, Long
: Island, USMMA's museum is curated by Dr.
: Josh Smith, a 1250 scale enthusiast who has
: previously worked with SMSC members on the
: museum's long-running "CONVOY!"
: exhibit and in acquiring the Menschaar
: collection of rare Noordzee and Heinrich
: models, which are now on public display
: there along with the museum's extensive
: collection of builders models and maritime
: I should have details of both meetings up on
: the SMSC website shortly, and both Harald
: and I will be posting periodic updates for
: our respective meetings here on the Board as
: plans develop.
: And if you can't make it to either of these
: meetings, why not get in touch with nearby
: collectors and get together for meetings of
: your own? It's a great way to get to know
: one another and share in a common interest!
