2018 Convention Labelled a Success!

The 2018 Annual 2-Day Show and Convention was a great success.  Organizers reported attendance was up over last year and vendors reported both days had good sales and trades.  A contributing factor was the Jeffrey Hoare Military Auction held on the Saturday.  The organizers from both the CSMMI convention and the Jeffrey Hoare auction reported attendance was up due to the synergy of the two events.  

Thanks to all visitors and our vendors for making this a great event.  And special thanks to the event organizers and the Burlington Holiday Inn for taking care of  all the details.
