Special Event — Advance Notice
The Seeck Auction Company will be offering the outstanding carnival glass collection of Jackie Poucher. In conjunction with the auction HOACGA has made plans for a special event. Mark your calendar for this special time: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 11–13, 2014. It will be at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Kansas City, MO, same hotel as the HOACGA Convention. Reservations available online at Embassy Suites Hotel- International Airport, Kansas, MO . Use Group Code HCG. Reservations can also be made by calling the hotel at 816-891-7788, room rate same as the convention rate, $115.00/day, reservation cut-off date is August 30, 2014. You do not have to be a member of HOACGA to attend the Thursday and Friday events.
We are sure that many collectors will be coming to the auction, so rather than making the tiring trip on a Friday, checking in to the hotel, getting into your room, having something to eat and then viewing the glass. HOACGA invites you to come in on a Thursday. This will give you a chance to have a relaxing evening and chance to visit with friends and enjoy the Managers Reception (happy hour).
We have scheduled some non-carnival entertainment on Thursday evening, for your enjoyment. We are sure that “Elvis” will pay us a visit (something we know you will enjoy). This will give you a chance to spend a leisurely evening, being entertained and visiting with carnival glass friends.
On Friday morning Bud Martin will present an educational talk, probably on Northwood. Then before the viewing starts on Friday, Galen & Kathi Johnson will present a discussion about some of the pieces in the auction.
HOACGA would like for you to come, have an enjoyable visit with friends, be entertained by “Elvis” (wear your blue suede shoes if you would like), be subject to some information about carnival glass, a visit to the Managers Reception (happy hour) with friends and an opportunity to add some extraordinary glass to your collection.
The Heart of America Carnival Glass Association (HOACGA) was formed in 1972 for the purpose of promoting the hobby of collecting Carnival Glass. This is accomplished by providing educational information through a Newsletter (6 times a year), a yearly Convention (with educational programs), a Notebook (different subjects are added periodically), and have published several books on writings by members. An annual convention is held each year in Kansas City, Missouri at the Embassy Suites Hotel by the airport (The hotel has a shuttle bus to pickup anyone flying in for the convention). The annual convention is in April.
