2014 Fall Meet

The Fall Meet has come and gone but the memories carry on. The weather was noticably cooler but still got pretty warm in the afternoons. There were plenty of activities all over the property and trains were running into the evenings. The turn out at the Pot-Luck dinner was smaller than normal but there was plant of tasty food to go around. Thanks to everyone that made this a great fall meet.
