The museum will open for us when we arrive, presumably around 10am. This will be a private opening for Division 6 guests. George Keller of the Museum has a program set up for us. We will have a building set up for our meeting and contest. I have not set a time for this as of yet but possibly it will be before lunch. I can assure everyone that the meeting will be very short as we are there to see the museum and do some train watching. Lunch will be on your own but feel free to group up and do something. There are several restaurants with in walking distance. George has also set up at least one layout to visit on our way home. I expect to be back in Columbus around 7pm I am looking forward to a fun filled day.
