TCD SHARE YOUR SKILLS DAY

Details
Date:

April 13

Time:

01:00 pm - 04:00 pm

The Twin Cities Division’s “Hands on” Share Your Skills Day.

This event is for all – new and experienced – and everyone in between.  Please join us and share a skill, as we make something, try something, do something – getting our hands dirty in the process, or at least having a better understand on how to do something.

April 13, from 1pm to 4pm

Details still being ironed out.  The following are rough ideas of the skills:

Skill #1 Loads – Make-n-Take:  Make a load for an open Hopper – Coal, Sand, Gravel, Woodchips.  Make a load for an open Gondola – scrap steal.  Bring a car or two and make a load.

Skill #2 Soldering – Try-n-Tell:  Learn how to solder – what to do, what not to do – as you try our hand at this skill.  (TCD is working on having a small project, that we will solder at this event, that you can take home.)

Skill #3 DCC Programming:  Full details of this ‘skill’ are still a work in progress.  But this will most likely revolve around your need in the DCC word – programming CVs, speed matching, JMRI, DCC topics in general, etc… (Due to time and the sometimes-potential complex nature of decoder installation – we will not encourage decoder installation at this event.)  DCC Racetracks (with DCC systems) will be available for use.  Bring your loco, and we can work through some DCC topics.
