Just wanted to let everyone know that the fall semi-annual Mid West Tool Collectors Association meeting will be held on October 26 – 28, 2006 in Chattanooga TN at the Holiday Inn Choo Choo. We are expecting over 400 people to attend.

This meeting will include great programs, a lot of tool buying & selling, incredible displays, an auction, a What’s It session and fellowship with others that share an interest in antique/traditional tools. The meeting begins on Thursday with the famous parking lot sale that starts when you still need a flashlight. On Friday, we move inside to a large trade room through noon on Saturday. Early Saturday afternoon there is an auction. All during this time, there are programs of interest for both men and women.

You have to be a member of M-WTCA to attend. All M-WTCA members should have already received a registration package. This year, members can also select the Saturday Only Option which only allows access to the trade room, What’s It session and auction on Saturday.

If you are not a member and want to attend, you have two alternatives. First you can join now and attend all three days by going to the website at and getting an application and mailing it in ASAP. Let me know and I will get you a registration form and let those running the meeting know you plan to attend. This must be done now to avoid a late registration fee.

A second alternative for non-members is to attend on Saturday only. If you join at the door (starts at 7:00 am) for the normal $25 yearly membership fee, you will get in to the Saturday activities (trade room, What’s It session, displays and auction) plus be a full member through 2007. This is a great way to find out what M-WTCA has to offer and experience an incredible day of “tooling”. If you are within 250 miles of Chattanooga, why not consider making this trip, as it will be one you won’t forget.

If you have any further questions, please contact me at or call 919 828-2754.

Hope to see you in Chattanooga,
Ed Hobbs
