RadioWinterFest: Announcement

January 18th, 2015

Presented jointly by the Mid-Atlantic Antique Radio Club and the National Electronics Museum

MAARC’s second annual indoor January meet at the National Electronics Museum (NEM) in Linthicum, MD, (near BWI airport), is to be a repeat of last year’s very successful event at this wonderful museum. Tour the museum throughout the meet while it is not open to the general public. For non-NEM members, there is a $5 charge to attend the meet and tour the museum, plus a $5 table fee (30- x 72-inch tables) for vendors. (No flea market selling outside.)
NEM members will be admitted free, and MAARC and National Capital Radio & Television Museum members who are also NEM members can renew their NEM memberships at the reduced price of $20 (normal price is $25). MAARC and NCRTV members who do not currently belong to NEM may join at the reduced price at the meet and avoid the admission fee.
Non-vendors are not allowed in the flea market area until 9 a.m. but vendors may enter at 8 a.m. to set up. You need not be a vendor to consign auction items. There will be no pre-registration. Check the MAARC website (www.maarc.org) for any postponement announcement in case of a winter storm.
Coffee and donuts will be available. Lunch is available nearby at McDonalds and Quiznos, or bring
your own lunch. Nearby Motels include Holiday Inn, La Quinta, Country Inn and Suites, Hilton, and Marriott.
Location: Intersection of West Nursery Road and Elm Road, 1745 West Nursery Road. Look for the sign that says BWI Hilton Park and the large radar displays in front of the building. Ample free parking at the rear of the building.
