Welcome to The Connecticut Yankee 2022 Website. The Nutmeg Division invites all NMRA members to join us at this exciting event. The Northeastern Region Convention is in Windsor, CT (8 miles north of Hartford). The convention runs September 15–18, 2022. The Marriott Hartford / Windsor Airport Hotel, conveniently located at Exit 38 of I-91, is our venue.
The convention program begins at noon on Thursday, September 15, and concludes with the Awards Breakfast on Sunday morning. In between, an extensive number of activities are available to attendees: 45 clinic presentations, 22 layouts open for visits, 13 operating sessions, and contests for models and photos. A rare-mileage excursion on the Naugatuck Railroad will run on Friday. Numerous outside attractions, having both rail and general interest themes, are available within a short distance from the hotel.
A welcome reception with snack foods and cash bar takes place on Thursday evening. Saturday evening is set aside for the convention banquet in the spacious ballroom. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of your fellow modelers. Greet old friends, meet new ones, and enjoy a meal together. On Sunday morning come to the Awards Breakfast, wherein the winners of the Model and Photo Contests are announced, and recognition is given to new AP Certificate recipients.
