Cancellation of the 12th Annual Central Ohio NTrak Weekend

April 6, 2020
RE: Cancellation of Ohio N-scale weekend:

Vendors, Participants, and the General public:

We have waited as long as possible to make a decision about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the 12th Ohio N-scale weekend Scheduled for May 16-17, 2020.

Regrettably, We have decided to cancel the 12th Ohio N-scale weekend. 

While the current stay at home order Governor Mike DeWine issued is scheduled to expire on May 1st, the governor has indicated that a slow return to normal will be required after the stay at home order is lifted.  Our show definitely falls above the 100 person gathering restriction the governor issued prior to the stay at home order.  We do not believe this limit will be removed prior to the show.

We made an effort to secure a date later in the year to hold the show, but the only date our venue has available is in the middle of prime train show season.  We believe this will make it impossible to have a show of the quality we expect.

Participants and Vendors:

If you have already paid for registrations and/or tables, we will issue a full refund or apply the funds you have sent us to the 2021 Ohio N-Scale Weekend.  Dates for the 2021 show will be announced soon.

If you have any questions, please contact us at ohionscaleweekend@yahoo.com

Thank You,

Club News Update

Unfortunately due to health concerns there will be no official club functions until further notice. We are hopeful that we will still be able to hold the N scale weekend in May. The clubhouse will not be open for visitors until the social distancing orders have been lifted.

12th Annual Ohio N Scale Weekend Update

As we move closer to another great weekend at this time we've sold out of vendor tables for the event. Watch for further updates if any extra tables come available. Thanks everyone!

With heavy hearts we are posting that long time club president David Lindsey passed away February 13, 2020. Dave served as our club president for many years and was one of the driving forces in getting our N scale event up and running. He will be greatly missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

It is with great sadness that we must report that our long time club secretary Craig Sonnen passed away on Thursday Feb 28.. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. As many of you know Craig had run the registration table at the Ohio N scale Weekend since day one. He was a Master Model Railroader, active in the local NMRA chapter and a very involved in the Ttrak community.
