Santa Monica Show

Members of Group 160 N-Trak are reminded that the bi-annual show at Sunset Lodge in Santa Monica will be held on the weekend of the 20th of November.

We will be arriving for setup on Friday, November 19th at 4:00 PM. Many hands make light work, so we encourage as many of our members as possible to turn out lend their assistance in getting our layout up and running. The layout will be set up in the lodge room for this show. November 20th, the layout will be open to the general public from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. There is no admission charge for this event.

Following the show, a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner will be held in the dining room for members of Group 160, Sunset Lodge and invited guests.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at this event.
