About 20 years ago there was a small group of people that ran a PRSL Historical society. I went to the meetings for a few years. It disbanded because the 2 of the 3 people doing 99% of the work got married to each other and wanted to move on. After repeated requests by the group founders for the members to join in and help out nothing happened. No one stepped up and it was over.
With the sales of PRSL related items I see on eBay every week I know that we are all still out there somewhere. It is easier to keep in contact with email and websites now for little to no cost. PRSL fans from all over the country have already expressed their interest and joined us.
The membership is free and on line only. Paper newsletters are labor intensive and are expensive to produce and mail. We may eventually have a newsletter; however that will be on line only as well in PDF form. We have no real expenses right now so why set up a dues structure? Collecting the dues is another labor intensive position. The most important thing that is needed is an interest in the PRSL.
Perhaps you have something to share with us on the website. Our focus will include both prototype and modeling interests of the PRSL in all scales. You can get your own personal PRSLHS website page to display your PRSL items and a PRSLHS email address. As 12-20-08 we have over 160 people on the membership emailing list, but we have room for you!
