Texas Marble Collectors Inc. Spring Show


Recommended Posts

Some of the boards still have last year's spring info up without noting the year 2011. I want to clarify the dates especially.

Texas Marble Collectors Show begins Wed. April 25, 2012 and goes through the 27, 2012 for in room trading. We all go out to eat together each night, Willie Benoit is in charge of planning the restaurants.

The marble show is Saturday April 28, 2012. We are planning a marble tournament for adults that morning and another for children. Both tournaments will take place Saturday morning. Three marble champions will be there to give pointers to participants and to hold the tournaments. Prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

We will have marble makers making marbles during in room trading and during the show. The hotel allows us to make marbles just outside the back wall of the conference center It is roofed and all structures are concrete or rock - no fire hazard. It is well ventilated as one side is open and the two ends are partially open.

West Virginia's Phillip Arthur will be making marbles and he will help visitors make a marble for themselves. Several other marble makers are invited to join Philip and do the same. Possible artists are Greg Hoglin, Gerry Colman, Jayson Massey, Jay Massey, and Kip Maley. Any artists wanting to take part are welcome. The club furnishes propane and oxygen. Artists will bring their equipment with them and the glass they want to work with.

The show is at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel and Williamson Conference Center located just behind the hotel. The address is 1209 N IH-35, Round Rock, Texas.

Phone number for the hotel is 512 341 7000. The hotel rate is $84.00 per night. Cut off date for the reduced rate is April 4, 2012.
