NASG Booths


© Peter Vanvliet; used by permission

The NASG has a booth set up at these annual shows: National Farm Toy Show, World's Greatest Hobby on Tour, Summer Farm Toy Show, and National Train 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 need to be 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:
