Dear MAAC Member,

        We hope you enjoyed our November show.  There were approximately 310 tables sold.  Our attendance was 19 less than our November 2016 show.  A special thanks to everyone for removing your vehicles after unloading.  Our loading-unloading process is working much better for all involved.  We also appreciate your help in securing guns with ties and keeping loose ammo boxed for sale.  We are working diligently to secure open dates for the 2019 shows.  We will make  every effort to secure dates that do not conflict with other major shows.

            MAAC would like to thank the following individuals for their terrific displays: Mr. John Bassett for “Missouri and Pacific and Texan Railroad Lines”, “James Robert Cummins Gun” – Mr. Mark Smith, “Antique Pressing Irons”- Mrs. Roberta Cassell, “WWI Trench Art Souvenirs” – Mr. James Cassell, “The 102nd United States Colored Troops CO. B” and a display commemorating MAAC’s 70th Anniversary by Mr. Dan Kurkowski our MAAC Historian.  Our February 2018 show will again be featuring “Dr. Goddard’s St. Valentine’s Day Massacre” with  Lt. Mike Kline (retired) from the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office presenting.  In conjunction with this display will be “The American Thompson Association” by Tracy Hill and the “Thompson Revolver Display” by Mark Smith.  In addition Mr. James Cassell will be presenting his “Michigan Copper Mining, the Black Powder Era” display with antique tools and unusual and obsolete items.  Both exhibits are coming back again by special requests from our members and the public.  If you would be interested in a preview of Mr. Cassell’s mining display it can be viewed on you-tube under Michigan Copper Mining.

Board Notes:

  • For all 2018 MAAC shows: I-696 will be under construction for 2018 from I-94 to I-75. If you come to our show from the east using that route you will have to use an alternate route. That section will be closed to all traffic. Sorry about the inconvenience.
  • Please purchase your tables early. Annual membership dues are now $40.
  • If you leave the hall, close all doors behind you and wear your security badges at all times.
  • Secure all ammo and tie all breach loading weapons. No loaded weapons allowed.
  • Display antique, sporting (hunting) and target arms and related equipment only.

Have a great holiday season.  Stay safe and see you at the February show.  Thanks for your support!!
