The Watchmakers/Clockmakers Association of Ohio’s 2012 Annual Convention will be held July 13 -15, 2012 at the Carlisle Inn in Amish Country south of Akron, Ohio.
(Address & Map are at the bottom of this message)
The 66th Annual Convention of the Watchmakers/Clockmakers Association of Ohio is just around the corner. We would like to encourage you to make plans to attend. We feel the classes will fill up fast – so, as the saying goes, “the early bird gets the worm”. It’s not too soon to book your reservations.
The WAO has some excellent educational programs lined up this year with Jim Lubic presenting a class on The Watchmakers Lathe and Harvey Mintz presenting a class on Cleaning Pocket Watches. Robert Miller, of International Dial Co. will inform us about his business of refinishing dials and about his computer software, Repair Tracker. We understand there will be a special price for those making a purchase of Repair Tracker software, at the WAO Convention. Chris Nimon will give a speech regarding the Horolovar Company and the material and services he offers.
There will be dinner served Friday and Saturday evening. This will consist of food served at the Dutch Valley Restaurant (some of that good “Amish cooking”), next door to the Carlisle Inn.
There are lots of things to see and do in the area including, but not limited to: cheese shops, wine shops, antique stores, furniture stores, the Warther’s Carving Museum and much more…
