    Well attended and Sucessful Chapter 18 Meeting Today:
    The watch and clock contests brought a total of eight pieces for display at the meeting. Besides the incredible six presentation watches, L. Wise brought two "Estell' " clocks to the meeting and told of their history and their roots from Richmond, IN. Les had an article, authored by Doug Cowan, that had a lot of background information on these interesting clocks and their usefullness. The presentation watches, which ranged from a V & C to a couple of Walthams, a nice 992B Hamilton, a Lord Elgin wristwatch that was in its original box and looked to have never been worn, and a grade 294 South Bend were absolutely stunning to see.
    Mr. Laurence Blanchard gave an excellent presentation on the mechanics and how to regulate 20th century pocketwatches. It kept the attention of the Chapter 18 members and the handouts that Laurence handed out were very helpful.
    Thanks, Brad Maisto, Indiana Chapter 18 President
