    You can expect to find anything and everything, from the bargain to the expensive. It is a real experience that there can be so much stuff under one roof. Set a budget, you could go out of control.

    In addition, there are special interest chapter meetings -- British Horology, Tower Clock, Cog Counters, and Electrical Horology. Any NAWCC member may attend any of the meetings. I also understand that the exhibit is British Clocks. Finally, you will be able to meet at least one board member in the "meeting your rep" session.

    The breakfast banquet Saturday morning is one of the best.

    There is a wonderful George Jones regulator in a jewelry store in Covington. John Cote took a small group on a tour there a few years ago. I suspect you would need to buy the store to purchase it.

    I had a fantastic time at my very 1st NWACC Meet in KY. I was informed that the national meet 2013 will be in Dayton, ohio with ST being the feature clock. I also had my expectations up very high thinking i would find one of htose big over the top killer Jewelers Regulator Clocks. There was 1000's of clocks forsale but did not see a single one of the kind i like. There was a incredible French Torsion Swinger Clock that i was totally crazy over, however i have no clue to what i am looking at or it would have gone home with me..Anyways great time and very helpful fellow collectors..

    I'm glad to hear that you had a great time at Drawbridge-always one of my favorite regionals.

    I had a table downstairs in "watch land" and didn't venture up to "clock land" too much. Although the show was slow in the afternoon, I still managed to buy some good watches and sell some good ones. Overall, a great time, and of course the best part of all is seeing old friends and making new ones.
