Heart of America Chapter Events
TCA HOA president, Steve Dickerson, Secretary-Treasurer, Mike Bartley along with TCA Ozark Division President, Brad Marples and I traveled to Columbia, MO last Wednesday to meet with members of the Central Missouri TCA chapter. The picture below shows the group at dinner. After dinner we attended their chapter meeting and ran trains. Also, we had the opportunity two visit 3 layouts. Our thanks to Central MO chapter president, Dennis James, for setting the trip up and to Lou Eggerding, Dick Malon and John Becker for opening their homes to tour their layouts. You can find photos of our layout tours a the photobucket link below.
