3rd Annual Convention (2001)

The Marx Convention for 2001 is now history. Planning is already underway for NEXT year’s convention, which will be held on June 14th and 15th, 2002 at the Toy Museum in Wheeling. Growing bigger and better every year, the convention drew many new attendees, as well as many familiar faces. Just about everything Marx was represented. A variety of workshops were put on, on topics ranging from cleaning and repairing your classic Marx toys and trains, to custom making parts and accessories that Marx never got around to doing. Thanks goes out to Dick Reichart, Scott and Bobbye Moss, Bob Barth, and Robert Grossman for putting on these wonderful workshops! Thanks also to former Marx employees Alex Rich, Robert Mickey, Harold Loy, and Gary Nisperly (yes, Gary you worked there a few summers, too) for sharing their memories of Marx with us!
