Not to be a pessimist, but the way things seem to be going on a national basis, I would not count 100% on there even being an October York. I sure do hope I am wrong, but COVID "stuff" does not seem to be heading in the right direction at the present time. We shall see! And PLEASE, do not post ANY political comments here or I will delete this thread faster than you (or I) can count to 10.

Thanks Don and Andy - I was curious about the museum's plans this year.

Im glad someone said it...and I totally agree.

Maybe but I'm still planning as if it will go on.  We can't live in a bubble forever. 

Back to the yellow hall, the only thing I can remember even being close to enjoyable is the smell of MTH smoke fluid.  Not sure why but that always was about the only thing I remember enjoying.  Maybe it's because it masked all the other odors.  LOL!

Well, I am not going to worry about it since I can't control what the PA government or the ED decide to do. If they have it I will be there. If not I will save my York money for April 2022 or whenever there is another York. The first time that York was cancelled last year I was very disappointed that it got cancelled but with each cancellation after that I got more and more used to the idea of no York. If they cancel this one it won't even phase me.

I for one am looking forward to walking through the Yellow Hall again. That hall was open when I first started going to York. Maybe the years have colored my memories but I don't remember it being dirty or musty. I remember it being very crowded with a lot of excitement in the air as was all the Yorks I attended in those early years (2001 to 2007). Even if it is all HO I will definitely enjoy walking through the Yellow Hall again.

My memories of this hall are the same as Phil's. I also remember it to be long with aisles (two?) that zig-zagged through it's length. Closed food booths, etc. along the walls and in the center at one point, vendor tables in front of them. Is was not very well lit.

I'm looking forward to hunting there again - the more halls the better (even if it is just to make space for wider aisles in the other halls)

Funny, I said the same thing about a week ago. Said I hoped there would be a York but watching the national news, I was wondering. Nothing Political. My post got deleted.     That said.........I really hope there will be a York.

I confirmed last night that my son has two tables in the Yellow Hall while I have two tables in Red.  Hopefully we can co-ordinate in the future so all of our tables are together.  It seems like there is quite a bit of distance between the Red and Yellow halls.  Luckily we both have our significant others traveling with us to help with the table coverage.

My only problem with my son is he is a miscreant and in to "N" Gauge.  Kids are such a disappointment sometimes (just kidding).
