The July 24-25 OVMS Show at the Roberts Centre was a success.

Thank You!

Our members, exhibitors, and public guests made our July 24-25 Wilmington Show at the Roberts Centre a great success!  The OVMS appreciates your participation and attendance under difficult conditions brought on by the Covid 19 virus.  Our society exists to bring to the collecting community the finest militaria shows anywhere.  We take that obligation very seriously.  It was our pleasure to host a show that was both large enough to be worthwhile for collectors and still as safe as possible for everyone to attend.  Much of the credit for the success of this show goes to the Robert Centre.  It was the cooperation of the Roberts Centre’s lead sales representative Angela Reagan and her staff that made the full hall expansion for social distancing possible.  We sincerely appreciate all who attended for their willing compliance with the Covid rules – your cooperation made this event possible. We are now working on the November 6-7 show.  Some are already calling this the “Mini MAX.”  While that is probably an exaggeration, it does suggest what could happen at the Roberts Centre when things return to normal.  Dare to dream big!

The officers and staff of the OVMS     


It is with sincere regret that we announce that the 2020 MAX Show in York, PA has been cancelled due to restrictions related to the COVID 19 virus.  Particularly the social distancing requirements would have forced us to either drastically reduce the size of the show or move it to several different locations around the fairgrounds.  If you have tables reserved for this show, they will automatically roll over to the 2021 show.  You will lose nothing.  If you have rented hotel rooms, you will need to cancel them ASAP.  We will inform you of all the details very soon.  Keep your eyes open to the OVMS website, Facebook page, and the “JUST THE FACTS” newsletter for all the most up-to-date and factual information.  Do not listen to rumors, check first with the OVMS.
