HOA just got the info on the two special items (Polar Express Skiing Hobo Car & The Unique Lionel® VisionLine UP Challenger) that will only be available through the Lionel Collectors Club of America. Since most/all of you belong to both TCA and LCCA you may have already seen this info.  If a person buys either or both they receive a free one year membership to LCCA or if they are already a member an extension of one year. Last year there was an exclusive Niagara Steam Engine that was only available through the club that was very popular. As we all know there are many members who belong to both organizations. There are also a lot of our TCA members who have the Polar Express set who will want this car.

Ozark Division TCA Members:

In the first email from the I mentioned that from time to time we would send out updates on Ozark Division activities.  This email reports on the Chapter President’s meeting held in Columbia, MO on 01/26/19.  Those attending were; Steve Dickerson, HOA Chapter President, Dennis James, Central Mo Chapter President, David Osborn, Gateway Chapter President, Jon Lundvall, Ozark Division Secretary/Treasurer, Brad Marples, First Past President Ozark Division and myself.

During the meeting we had a spirited discussion concerning the needs of the chapters and the direction the division is headed.  Don identified three Key Success areas and objectives were developed for each.  The three areas and the objectives are:

1.  Honoring the past history of the Ozark Division

Jon will bring the 2004 Ozark Division History document up to date and Don will visit all 50+ year members of the TCA in the Ozark Division.

2.  Managing the present with excellence

David will develop plans to revitalize the Gateway chapter.  Don and Jon will support David in his efforts through personal involvement and dedication of resources.

3.  Plan for the future

Dennis, Steve and Brad will develop plans for inter chapter activities. These plans could take many forms, but one discussed was a “mini convention” hosted by the chapters on a revolving basis.

Our next Chapter President’s meeting will be held in the late May early June. This meeting will be held in Overland Park, KS

Thank you all for your support of the TCA.
