IslandOps 2017

Friday, April 21nd, Saturday, April 22rd, and Sunday, April 24th, 2016

We will have four operating session start times - Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning - at a number of different layouts within about 45 minutes of central Nassau County. The layouts range in size from a small rural town to a 5,600 square foot club layout representing a line from the New Jersey waterfront to central Pennsylvania. They range in era from 1940 to 2017, and in theme from hectic urban canyons to relaxed rural Minnesota.
