Re-cap of Our First Anniversary Global Power-Up

Our First
Office of Steam Forum

Global Power-Up

Surprising only begins to describe our first Global Power-Up on the first anniversary of our new forum. I would have been pleased with 6 or 7 exhibitors participating in our first event of this type. I would have been thrilled to have 10-12 participants especially since many of you did not even know about this event until just 1 week in advance. 

What Happened..?

What happened indeed… I am just plain gobsmacked with the results. We had a virtual global model engine  “show” with 42 tables, 800 posts, all showcasing the highest quality virtual model and toy steam, gas, and hot air engine displays anywhere. Our first Global Power-Up was a resounding success! Our attendance was outstanding. Our participation was off the charts outstanding. In fact to say it is a resounding success just begins to describe it. To say I am thrilled is an understatement. I want to thank each and every one of you who participated for your outstanding efforts and exceptionally high quality displays and discussions! A special thank you goes out to Nick and our team for their participation and help in planning, organizing and executing. Together…. we pulled it off…!!!

Well done everyone!

Very well done…!!

Thanks again,

Well done to all of you for organising it and all the participants.
I was intending to partake but unfortunately we had a local Viking festival ( first one )
And by hook or crook i was involved and that coupled with all the feeding out on farm due to drought
I had no time to spare .

No need to apologize Dennis .... we are sorry that you were unable to attend and participate, but we do realize that some folks have lives outside of this hobby, and sometimes those lives do intrude on free time. Next year you'll show us how it should be done, I have no doubt!
