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 using this:

The Houston S Gaugers will have their layout set up at this annual show (set up in the Pavilion across the street from the museum, along with the G-gaugers). Due to lack of crowds on the second day (Sunday), this year the show has been reduced to a one-day show only. However, it was on Saturdays that they have a lot of activities for families and children. In addition to lots of model railroads of all scales, and the local Lego group, there will be other activities such as Touch-a-Truck (children get to go into HUGE trucks of various sizes), and plenty of food vendors. Last year a helicopter landed in the parking lot behind the Pavilion. This event is held in historic downtown Texas City, so there are plenty of antique shops in the area. The streets will be closed off to automobile traffic.
