This year there are three planned programs including:
--- “How to Solder Properly” presented by Gordon Sooy firstname.lastname@example.org
---“American Pocket Horology” presented by Bryan Eyring email@example.com
---“Maintaining Your Own Clocks” presented by Tom Borkowski and Jeff Ring firstname.lastname@example.org
During the Regional, on both days, there will be a 50/50 raffle. Don't forget Public Day will be on Saturday.
The Mart will take place in the Main Gym. There is plenty of room for vendors and generous aisles for the buyers. A popular feature during the mart is the "Silent Auction ". Several are held right in the Mart room. Members may consign Horological items and buyers can bid on paper until the end of the auction session when the highest bidder wins the item. This is a low cost way to sell and a good place to find a bargain.
There will be a special silent auction of donated items starting Friday and ending on Saturday at 1 PM. Proceeds from this auction will help to defray regional expenses. Minimum bids for this auction start at $5 and the winning bidder must be present when bidding ends. Proper identification is required when paying for your auction item in cash or check.
The owner of a donated item must indicate the condition of the item sold. Items are preferred to be in good condition. Know that Chapter 28 and its affiliates assume NO responsibility what-so-ever for any transaction, lot or stolen items. Additional auction donations are appreciated. If you would like to enter an item, please contact John Vourliotis at email@example.com He would appreciate entries by May 1 so that table space can be arranged.
Food during the event will be available indoors in the College at the
snack bar in the Gym
Lobby and at the
College cafeteria. The food service
people always do a fine job.
If you choose to wander out into the community, there are several
the area adjacent to the
College, as well as the over 100 restaurants in
the greater Mentor
