Calling ALL NAWCC Members!
So I live in NH and I am President of NAWCC Chapter # 87 for Greater Mass and I am driving back from Philadelphia Chapter #1 yesterday considering that I am also a member of Chapter #2 NY, Chapter # 8 New England, Chapter # 148 CT, and also attend meetings from time to time in Maine and various other NY Chapters… Am I the only one???
I am proud that we at Chapter #87 have members that drive to Peabody, MA from Maine, NH, RI, and all over Mass… but I am honestly surprised that there are not more members from other chapters making the drive to our shows… or more members from National joining Chapter # 87!
Please understand... I not only enjoy the chapters that I mentioned but I also respect their members and officers many of whom I have come to know and been befriended and mentored by… BUT… having experienced all of those meetings I KNOW that Chapter # 87 meetings are worth the trip! WHY???
We have a THRIVING mart… not only in size, but in quality! I see our members at places like the Brimfield Antiques Fair, Todd’s Farm Flea Market, auctions, and estate sales looking for watches that show up at our mart tables! We not only have experienced passionate collectors, but multiple dealers who make some AMAZING finds… come check it out!
We have some GREAT watchmakers… Mark Kolesinskas, Chris Carey, Steve Murphy to name a few… need a watchmaker? I know where to find one! Are you a watchmaker that could use a little business? We have members looking for you!
We have GREAT members… names like Dan Haff and Tom McIntyre are nationally known for their knowledge and passion in horology. I could name a couple of dozen of our members whose knowledge of watches and clocks makes me realize that I have LONG, LONG way to go to even have a small percentage of their knowledge.
We are GROWING and moving forward… we recently started a “Best of Show” contest to bring out some gems that are not for sale, but long to be seen. We are reviving a silent auction table at our September meeting. We are marketing Chapter # 87 with our Free Coupons, and sample NAWCC Bulletins throughout New England along with e-mail blasts courtesy of NAWCC.
So come to the meeting! If you are a Chapter # 87 member… a member of another Chapter, someone who has let your membership lapse, someone who has never joined a chapter, or even NAWCC!!! Come check us out! It’s worth the trip!
