Trumpeters on the Road (TotR)
The Trumpeters on the Road (TotR) is a group of individuals dedicated to increasing the Trumpeter Society's profile in the community. In the old days of the society the club set up events at local high schools, fairs, malls, and even at the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition). The purpose of these events was to give the general public an awareness of our hobby with our gaming display games and to recruit new members into our society.
TotR attended: VCON 2017 (October 28th/29th) convention held at the Sheraton Guildford Hotel next to Guildford Mall. This is a large event that allows the Trumpeter Society to be involved in the hobby in a positive way. This event was headed by Trumpeter Executive President: René Charbonneau. René and Eric Hotz will present a large, fast play, Sci-Fi tank game, with infantry, starting Saturday starting at 11am on a 6x6-ft table; this game will be repeated throughout the day and will also be played on Sunday.
NOTE: TotR is not just limited to the Vancouver area. In 2016 TotR put on a WWI Air Combat demo game at the Airshow in Everett, Washington State, USA in conjunction with the NHMGS. The best part: TotR members got into the airshow FREE, had FREE parking, FREE food and included FREE entrance to the military museum! All aircraft and vehicles in the museum and airshow are fully functional examples.
