Volume 21, Number 10 October, 2018 

“It ought to be plain how little you gain by getting excited and vexed.
You'll always be late for the previous train, and always on time for the next.”

Piet Hein – Danish mathematician, inventor, poet

As noted at the September meeting, we have come to the end of the “Open House” season. Thanks to Steve and Beth March for keeping us organized with layout background stories, histories and driving directions. A big thank you to those who opened their homes and gardens for us to be entertained and amazed at the ingenuity of others.

It was a brutal summer weather-wise alternating with daytime temperatures sometimes soaring into the 90’s and drenching rainstorms the next day or week. Not a fun experience, but definitely keeping us on our toes. Now is the time to start getting organized for repairs and building for next year.

We will meet again on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at the The Rose Garden Café, when we will revisit the White Pass and Yukon Ry and discuss the new management and updates that have occurred this past year. It’s an interesting tale. Ask me about the indoor rain “showers”.

The CAGRS Board will meet on November 4, 2018 at the Althardt’s starting at 3:00 PM. If you are planning on attending, please notify Gayle Althardt no later than October 22. The fee will be $10 per person to help defray expenses for dinner.

That’s all for this month. Keep em’ runnin’
