If you are an old time collector looking to meet with other like-minded marble collectors, or you are just beginning to find the fun in collecting marbles, we urge you to come to one of our Midwest Marble Club meetings or shows and enjoy the amazing world of collectible marbles. See what it’s like to feel like a kid again hunting through a group of recently found marbles, looking for that “diamond in the rough” marble, or gazing at some truly remarkable and beautiful works of art. Our members meet quarterly to buy, sell and trade amongst themselves and the public.
Members also help new members and the public identify the “unknown” marbles in their collections or recent finds, as well as provide advice on finding, organizing and displaying their marble collections.
MIDWEST MARBLE CLUB WINTER 2020 MEETING – FEBRUARY 9, 2020 – Not the 2nd!
Due to feedback from Club Members about the original date of February 2nd being the date of the Super Bowl; The Midwest Marble Club has rescheduled its WINTER Meeting from Sunday, February 2nd, to February 9th. With the late change we were not able to get a Library location. So the location has changed to the Burnsville Ballroom, Space 2030 within the Burnsville Center (address is 1178 Burnsville Center) . The Ballroom is located just inside the Mall’s Northeast Entrance,upper level, next to Applebee’s Restaurant. The time will be from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Everyone, members and non-members, are welcome to attend the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be on planning the details for the many 2020’s Marble Club events.
Club members are encouraged to bring their Akro and Peltier marbles to show and sell. Expert members can help non-member identify and/or evaluate their personal marble collection. As usual, we will have the 50/50 Raffle and the Silent Auction tables. Club Members are encouraged to bring a nice item or two for the silent auctions. A Meeting Agenda will soon be sent out to all Members for whom we have a current email. Midwest Marble Club Membership annual fees are $30 for a 2020 Club Membership which allows free access to all Midwest Marble Club events in 2020. Non-members or inactive members will be charged $10 for setting up a sales table at the meeting. Lunch: sandwiches, chips and drinks are available for $8/person.
