Anyone know what time it opens?

MARC's web site doesn't say.

I will have a big pile of capacitors, knobs, bulbs, AC cords, spray chemicals and the usual odd assortment of whatever, probably some Zenith consoles too. Show runs 9am-4pm this year (we added another hour as last year it ran past the 3pm advertised time). The Bargain Auction should start around 3pm. Record Player seminar by past MARC Prez John Reinicke at 2pm on the stage in the gym room. Two Silent Auctions, one is 10-11am, one noon -1pm (anyone can sell there an item or two, as space permits, 10% to MARC on sales).

For those travelling from afar, you may want to check out this unique place nearby that's open later than the Expo.... Its called Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum and sadly Marvin passed away 2 yrs ago but its still open, although maybe not for long. See this Facebook page. Their website seems to be infected currently but maybe it will work for you. https://www.facebook.com/pg/marvinsmarv ... m/reviews/ MMMM is at 31005 Orchard Lake Rd, Farmington Hills, MI about 15 mins away from the Expo. I have no connection to the place other than I think its a riot. If you go, be sure to LOOK UP when you are in there, LOTS of historical aviation models and vintage Circus and Freak Show type signs and stuff. Its has many creepy weird novelty games too that adults like more than the kids, but its great for all ages really. Took my dad there for his 82nd B-day and all had a blast. Most games are 25c to play and you win tix on some of them for goofy cheapo prizes at the counter (150 tix wins a plastic T-Rex for example). Many video and "ride and steer" kind of arcade games you just never see anywhere anymore. I would allow 2 hours to really do most of it. Its free to enter, too.
