The GFLTC (aka the two-man show) had a great time at the 2002 NMRA National Train Show in Fort Lauderdale - themed Tracks in the Sand. So our layout was themed "Bricks in the Sand" Kudos to Robin Werner for organizing the event and being part of it. Show attendance was a super high 22,500+ and broke all attendance records for Sundays at such events. Also, we were featured on at least 2 local TV channels which helped attendance. For all other clubs contemplating the NMRA NTS (next one in Toronto) remember this - besides the Thomas the Train play area we were the only other area that provided some interest for the hordes of kids that showed up with parents. I did about 5-6 workshops a day on Trains, Robotics and Lego Building Tips and it was usually packed with people. Also answered so many questions that most days my voice was talked out at the end of the day.
