3- The preferable method for roads is SNOT. See Section 8 below. the use of SNOT roads is currently not used though it may return

4- Members should plan on bringing their own tables following this style: http://www.michlug.org/resources/tabledrawings/ or make arrangements to use portions of other member’s tables. The club now owns it’s own club tables which are used for large scale track layouts so members do not need to bring tables to the shows.
