Jeff:  Thanks for the reminder.  Gave it serious thought during the winter; but
my age (81) has become a factor.  When I lived in NJ, drove to the first Marion
Ohio convention - similar distance - and don't feel up to it now.  Wish I could see
the coal facilities, but becomes part of the 'never did it' list.  Planning to be around 
when the NMRA visits St. Louis in 2020.  #2156 should be "home" by then.

The 2016 NWHS Convention being held in Pikeville, KY is only four weeks away (May 19-21).  The convention headquarters will be at the Pikeville Hilton Garden Inn.  For those who have not yet made a room reservation an extension has been granted until Friday April 29 for the convention price of $119.00 per night.  Also as always any help ( setting up, manning the registration table, helping with the commissary, etc... ) is always appreciated and gratefully accepted.  This invitation is especially for any local society member who want to help. Planned highlights of this years convention is a tour of the Sun Coal and Coke facility at Vansant, VA, a strip mine and/or coal prep plant tour, former N&W (now NS) rail operations close to Pikeville, interesting presentations and the Saturday evening banquet with noted rail historian and photographer Ron Flanery as our guest speaker.  The convention will begin at 5:00pm Thursday May 19 with a meet and greet social get together.  So, make your reservation and come "Back to the Appalachian Coal Fields" for a most enjoyable weekend.      
-Jeff Hensley.
