Bert Cohen requested that the following be posted on the Marble Forums. A BIG Congrats to Bert - a very dedicated and very knowledgeable marble Ambassador!!

DEAR MARBLE FRIENDS,

THE PLACE TO BE ON COLUMBUS WEEKEND, OCT. 9-10, 2010 WAS THE NORTHEAST MARBLE MEET AT THE MARRRIOT HOTEL IN MARLBOROUGH, MA.

GLASS ARTISTS, DEALERS, COLLECTORS ALL CAME TOGETHER FOR ONE OF BERT'S BEST MARBLE MEMORIES. PEOPLE TRAVELED FAR AND WIDE FROM CONN., DELAWARE, ILL., LOUISIANA, MAINE, MICHIGAN, MARYLAND, N.H., N.J., N.Y., OHIO, PA., R.I., TENN, TEXAS, VERMONT, VA., AND W. VA.

LOTS OF GOOD STUFF WAS IN THE AUCTION AND THERE WERE A LOT OF BIDDERS GOING AFTER THE RARE MARBLES. ON SATURDAY RIGHT AFTER THE SCRUMPTIOUS LUNCHEON BUFFET WE HOSTED FOR ALL. IT WAS ALSO A CELEBRATION OF BERT'S 79th BIRTHDAY.

ON SUNDAY COMPLIMENTARY CONTINENTAL. BREAKFAST WAS THERE FOR THE DEALERS AS THEY SET UP THEIR BOOTHS IN THE MAIN BALLROOM. BUSINESS WAS BRISK AND WE HEAR PEOPLE DID WELL. MANY THANKS AND MUCH APPRECIATION TO HELPERS, SUE COOPER, PAULINE CIARAMITARO, ELLIOT PINCUS. AND OTHERS.

BERT DID A SUPER JOB OF ADVERTISING, E-MAILING AND WRITING TO COLLECTORS. THE SCUTTLEBUTT IS THAT THIS WAS THE BEST ORGANIZED AND MOST ENJOYABLE MEET IN 30 YEARS. BERT'S BEEN DOING THIS A LONG TIME --PRACTICE DOES MAKE PERFECT.

THERE WAS MUCH WARMTH, COMRADERIE AND ALL-AROUND GOOD FEELING SHARED BY ALL. BERT HOPES TO STAY WELL AND TOP THIS IN 2011, HE WILL TURN 80. SO HAVE A SUPER YEAR AND BE THERE!

BEST REGARDS,

ROSALIE COHEN
