The Money Show of the Southwest in Houston announced today a new program designed to financially assist Texas Numismatic Association member clubs to organize group trips to attend the December show.
According to Claude Mathes, chairman, the show will reimburse any TNA member club up to $1,000 toward the charter of a bus to bring its members to the show.
The show will reimburse TNA member clubs $25 per member, up to a maximum of 40 members actually on each bus, toward the cost of the charter. There is a minimum of 25 members per bus and reimbursement will not exceed the cost of the charter.
The Money Show of the Southwest will welcome each bus as it arrives at the convention center and take a photo of the arriving group with an appropriate sign.
Member clubs geographically near one another may jointly sponsor a bus in order to reach the program’s minimum. One of those clubs must organize the charter and it will receive the reimbursement.
The Money Show of the Southwest will feature approximately 250 booths with 350+ dealers, grading companies accepting submittals (PCGS, NGC, ANACS and WINGS), a major Heritage numismatic auction, bullion buyers and sellers, free appraisals, numismatic supplies, numismatic books and literature, displays of some of the rarest coins and paper currency, competitive and non-competitive exhibits, educational presentations and Scout merit badge clinics.
“I can’t think of a better way to attend a large regional show,” said Mathes. “Just jump on the bus and, with the show subsidizing your ride, it’s the best deal in numismatics.”
The Money Show of the Southwest is open to the public from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.
