Upcoming Events
2020-2021 RRVD Schedule

RRVD meets (when held on site, check below) are in the Lakeview Room at the Midway Village Museum Center. Midway Village is located at 6799 Guilford Road, just west of Perryville road in Rockford, IL.

We are providing two versions of the Events pamphlet.  If you simply want a listing of the events, you can print it out using this version:

Spring 2021 Events Linear Version

If you wish to print out a "booklet" similar to the hard copies we have provided to our members, you can print it out here using this version.  NOTE:  You have to print it "double-sided," then you can fold it in half and have a booklet.  You may have to re-order the pages depending on your printer settings.

Spring 2021 Events Booklet Version

 

The RRVD Board of Directors has decided that meets this season will only be accessible with Zoom. There will be no in person Meets at Midway Village at least through May 2021. The credentials for joining the Zoom Meet will be emailed to all RRVD members and friends with an email address on file a few days before the Meet. To avoid meeting disruptions, please do not post the credentials publicly or share the meeting credentials with anyone you do not know.

September 16-19, 2021 Midwest Region 2021 NMRA Convention

The Midwest Region Convention scheduled for Rockford this year has been cancelled.  While we anticipated that sufficient degree of normal social interaction would resume by fall, the persistent uncertainty of COVID restrictions regarding attendance limits and lack of commitment of venues to the event has regrettably forced us to cancel the 2021 175th celebration of the Rockford Railroad Convention.  We will all see you at Indianapolis in 2022!
