Thank You from BAPM 2017 - The 14th Annual SF Bay Area Prototype Modelers' Meet

Co-sponsored by the Pacific Coast Division, NMRA -
Anyone can attend - no memberships needed!  

Once again, we are pleased to share that BAPM 2017 set new records in attendance and participation this year!  So many of you came from all over California, and from Oregon, Nevada, Washington and beyond to join us!   

Those who were there shared many of the best aspects that this hobby has to offer - fun, fellowship, sharing and learning of new modeling techniques and filling each other with new knowledge and enthusiasm to embolden our efforts in this hobby! 

We would like to thank each and every one of you who took the time to come out to take part in BAPM 2017.   The talent and camaraderie shown was incredible, and the manufacturer and vendor representation was outstanding - More vendors than ever, including Athearn, ScaleTrains and ESU Loksound for the first time! 

We would like to also thank talented clinicians and wonderful sponsors for their faithful and generous support.  Without our sponsors, manufacturers and participants, BAPM would not be possible. 

Thank you, and save a weekend in June to come out to take part and see models like this in person at BAPM 2018 on Saturday June 16, 2018!  Save the Date!  Bring your Models, Bring Your Friends!! 

With Gratitude & Thanks,
Your Friendly BAPM Crew
