he North Shore Model Railway Club in Auckland is hosting the 2018 Rails & Sails NZAMRC National Convention March 30 to April 2, 2018. The convention is open to modellers of all prototypes and all scales.
Planning started early last year with a search for a suitable venue. The committee was able to secure the Onewa Arena on the North Shore. The arena has a large auditorium to house multiple portable layouts and retailers, a social area with its own cafeteria, several tutorial rooms, and an entertainment area for the banquet and invited talks. There is ample parking at the arena. There are multiple accommodation options nearby. Meals will be available for purchase at the venue.
Although the programme cannot be finalised until early 2018, it is planned to have the following:
At least one prototypical tour
Clinics, passive and hands-on
NZAMRC Modelling competitions
Portable layouts at the venue for train running
An awards presentation
A buy, sell and swap stand
A silent auction
A switch list operating session
A shunting competition
A demonstration of live steam locomotives
A partner program
The convention website is at http://nsmrc.org.nz/?q=NZAMRC2018 and there is a Facebook event page at https://web.facebook.com/events/1548574812107207/
