The Meetings are broken down by genre of toys and the chair people present what is new in their prospective genre. We have the famous Moose and Greg team on Action Figures. The Die-Cast is chaired by Jim Patterson and Stephen Lanzilla.  The meetings are usually about an hour to an hour and half and in some cases are closer to two hours depending on how much stuff people brought and various other club business that takes place.

We have a meeting-after-the-meeting that discusses what we found on ebay, flea markets, and other sources. This covers mostly older toys and is sometimes the most fun.
