To maintain your good health and safety, these changes include:
There may be fewer entrance/exit points to some Halls
Masks recommended in the Halls
Social Distancing Guidelines will be in effect
The Yellow Hall will become a Member & Dealer Hall
Due to Social Distancing Guidelines, your table(s) may not be where it was previously located
As National, State and local requirements continue to change, check the Eastern Division website, www.easternTCA.com for the latest updates to Meet guidelines. Even if the Governor lifts all COVID-19 restrictions, we will use the revised Hall plans for this Meet.
Several exciting Early Bird events will take place on the Fairgrounds beginning Monday, October 18. Plan to come to York early for:
Monday Night at the Movies
Enjoy a special showing of Under Siege 2 (Rated R), starring Steven Segal. The movie begins at 7:00 pm in the Blue Hall. Popcorn and snacks will be complementary. Limited seating. Order your FREE ticket(s) on your Meet Registration Card. This event is sponsored by Toy Trains & Collectibles of Manassas, VA.
National Toy Train Museum & National Toy Train Library Deaccession Sale
Beginning Tuesday, October 19 the Museum and Library will be offering van-loads of great train items deaccessioned from TCA’s inventory. The sale starts at 12:00 noon in the Yellow Hall. The sale will continue Wednesday through Saturday during Set up and Meet hours.
Welcome Back to the York Meet
Tuesday night from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm enjoy meeting your TCA friends from around the country at a Welcome Party complete with beer and wine! Your first glass of beer or wine is FREE, as well as soda and water. A Cash Bar will also be available. Finger foods will be complementary. “Welcome Back to the York Meet” location is yet to be determined. Order your $5 ticket(s) on your Meet Registration Card to enter the drawing for the Lionel VisionLine Big Boy. Two (2) tickets per member, please. This event is sponsored by Heartland Hobby Wholesale and MPC Products.
As you plan your trip to York, please consider the following:
Reconfirm your hotel/motel reservation. Many lodging facilities canceled the reservations you made for April 2020
Your hotel/motel may not be serving breakfast, but rather offering a ‘Grab and Go’ bag
Many restaurants are on restricted capacity. Plan your meals – make reservations
Car rentals are unavailable in many locations – reserve early.
I hope you are as excited as we are to be going back to the York Meet. Follow the points in this letter…it will help your York Meet Team and make your visit to the Meet one to remember.
Be safe, and I will see you in October 2021.
