Dear Carolwood member,
David Leaphart and I are organizing a "CPHS Disney Train Show" as a part of the 2012 Un-Meeting at Walt Disney World. This will consist of Carolwood members bringing any Disney trains or displays (models hopefully, but original FWRR engines are welcome) for display in the Carolwood Pacific Room on Saturday (Sept 29th). Examples for displays include anything related to Disney trains, including static or running models, dioramas or small layouts, Disney train memorabilia, etc. Other interesting examples could be John Bailey's Disney pin jacket, and David's video that he ran last year. Do we have any artists who might want to show some original Disney train related works, or photographs? We are hoping that we can inspire a few members to showcase their creativity by coming up with some special displays for this unique event. David has some special plans, and perhaps we can schedule some special train talks at times during the day.
Attendance to this event is not just for Carolwood members, so there will be a limited announcement for open attendance by Disney guests, helping us to promote CPHS, while providing an opportunity for you to show the World your passion.
I plan to have my "Little FWRR" layout table there to hold some items, and other tables can be added depending on the amount of participation. Please reply to this message as soon as you have a plan for how you wish to participate. We will need to gauge the interest and plan how to display your items. Even if you don't have a firm plan yet, please let me know if you will participate somehow.
We have envisioned this to be an all-day event, so we may need a few volunteers who don't go on the Walt's Tour to help man (and secure) the event, especially in the morning. I suspect that the biggest issue will be getting members to drop off/set up their displays early Saturday morning, and then pick them up after 4PM. The start time still needs to be resolved, as John listed it at 7AM, and I'm not sure if that is what he meant. But I wanted to get this announcement out ASAP so you can be thinking, planning and working on something to show. More details will follow in future emails after we get feedback from you.
If you can't make it to the Un-Meeting but have something that you would still like to display (maybe a photo or artwork), please respond and we will see what we can arrange.
Thanks in advance for your interest and participation!
