The Charlottesville Model Club is a general modelling enthusiast group which is sponsored by Rail Tales.
Note that the club meeting day and time have changed!
The club is open to new members and meets on the First Saturday of every month at the Rail Tales store location starting at 4 pm. This immediately follows the Rail Tales store model building demonstration. Meetings last until we all get tired of having fun or we have to leave to get up for work or our wives call.
All modelling subjects are covered from railroading to wood ships to plastic models. Most of our enthusiasts appreciate all aspects of model making but have a current favorite.
The current president of the club and contact person is Bret Jones (yes, the owner of Rail Tales…).
Note that the emails from me for club updates actually come from bretjones@ centurylink.net, not from the Rail Tales email. Members get an email up date once a month, usually about 3 days before the next meeting.
Mike Powers has constructed a great website for the club. All events and ongoing activities for the club can now be found there. (Thanks Mike!).
As a part of the sponsorship, anyone who actually attends a meeting gets 10% off on pretty much everything that you have to put together or that you use to put stuff together on the day of the meeting (ready-to-run train items and buildings and games are not included).
