We set up the Mini Mods at Touch A Truck.

Joe brought the white trailer with his red truck he bought from Bob.

And we got set up pretty quickly.

Konan the Librarian showed us where to set up and lent us a table. Also provided doughnuts!

We set up the mini mods, the switching layout and a shade. Notice that Harry and Tom haven't moved.

Still no motion. What DID those two do all morning?

There was ice cream in the background.

Joe provided a lady bug in case we needed and extra loco.

Our display for the morning.

The crew consists of Gary,

Harry,

Tom,

But Joe was hiding behind the camera so you get a picture of a unicyclist instead.

I'd suggest next time, we put the switching layout in the shade.

Percy deals with the troublesome trucks.

While Tom deals with the troublesome tykes.

People really don't know how switches work.

Gary's view of the crowd.

A line to drive a train.

EVERYBODY likes trains.

Here comes Percy!

Next to us, the drummers kept things going smoothly.

Tulsa fire department was there.

Showing the kids around.

An ambulance.

The Channel 6 storm chasing truck.

And News 8.

Herbie did a brief cameo.

And a jeep from Jurassic Park.

The General Lee was here, but I didn't see the Duke Boys anywhere. Must have been hiding from Boss Hog.

A time machine. Notice it wasn't the TARDIS.

Doc's suit ready for him.

I think most surviving DeLorean's have been turned into time machines by now.
