Fun Meeting

 Fun Meeting Those of us who attended last Saturday's Meet in Charlottesville had a great time making a pond with scenery surrounding it.  Bret did his normally phenomenal job. There was a lot to learn in a short period with several different materials.  Many folks are intimidated by scenery but should not be after last weeks clinic.   After purchasing supplies at Rail Tales and Lunch we went to Ron Garies' home for a final visit to a layout where many in the Charlottesville area spent quite a few Wednesday nights.  Thank you to those who arranged the open house and to Ron for all the memories.   Several attending the clinic asked about the brushes that were given out to attendees.  Links below: Flat Brush Round Brush
