NASG Booths


© Peter Vanvliet; used by permission

For a number of events throughout the year, the NASG will have a booth at the show. Since our membership is spread across the country, local help is needed to actually man the booth. Organizational support is provided by the NASG's Promotions Committee. The local contact person must be an NASG member, but all others who wish to help man the booth during the show's hours do not have to be NASG members; just people who are interested in promoting S-scale in all of its flavors. If you can spare a few hours during one of these shows, please consider signing up:
