  • Friday, March 29th is when the CRCC swap meet and meeting takes place. So now is the time to schedule some vacation days to attend our events and make your hotel reservations.

    This Spring 2019 show will be conducted in conjunction with the Windy City Coin Op Show at the DuPage, IL County Fairgrounds. Swap meet will start at 8:00 AM. Meeting will be held at the Hampton Inn Carol Stream, IL Hotel starting at 7:00 PM.

    If you are interested in antique cash registers, slot machines, juke boxes, and other man cave stuff the CRCC Swap Meet and Windy City Coin Op Show is where you want to be. Looking for difficult to find cash register parts, the swap meet is the place to find them. Want to sell registers and register related stuff you no longer need to hold on to this is the place to sell it. Consider bringing some other coin op/game room related items to increase your chances of selling your unneeded treasurers.

    The decision to do our swap meet and meeting in conjunction with the New Windy City Coin Op Show was simple. The Windy City Promoter was very workable with us and is providing us with an inside set up for our swap meet. Dealer set up for the Windy City Show is from 8 AM until noon on Friday the 20th of March and that is when we will hold our swap meet. Windy City Coin Op Show opens to the public at noon until 4:00 PM and we can stay the entire day if members desire to do so. Set up fee is $15.00 a table and you should reserve a table with me in advance to assure you will get one. Admission to the DuPage IL County Fairgrounds for members NOT RESERVING a table will also be $15.00 from 8:00 AM until noon. From noon to 4:00 PM when the show is open to the public will be $50.00. A CRCC membership list will be at the gate so the Windy City Show Promoter can check to see who is and who isn't a CRCC member.

    By setting up on Friday, March 29th our members still in the work force save a vacation day. Plus motel/hotel room rates are less expensive, and the Hampton Inn at Carol Stream, IL is providing us free use of the conference room for our meeting which will be at 7:00 PM. The Hampton Inn has a cut off date on reservations of March 1st. There are some lesser priced motels in the immediate area of the DuPage County Fairgrounds. but the rates are equivalent to our $89.00 CRCC room rate at the Hampton Inn in Carol Stream which is only 4 miles from the Fairgrounds. Our old hotel facility, the Quality Inn of St. Charles is 11.5 miles from the fairgrounds and has a cheaper room rate of $79.00, but that rate is higher than the on line room rates, and rates for senior citizens and etc.

    Since Dick Witcher stopped setting up at the Chicagoland Coin Op Show five or six years ago no other register guy has expressed interest in doing a dealer set up, thus no reason for us to stay involved with the Chicagoland Show, especially when you consider they eliminated the FREE admission to outside dealer set up on Friday. Our membership was not to keen on paying $50.00 to walk the parking lot at the Chicagoland Show for $50.00.

    By setting up at the Windy City Coin Op Show for our swap meet we will be involved close to all of the activity of the show.

    Below are some photo's of a rare, one of a kind Lamson Cash Register that appeared at the Fall 2017 CRCC swap meet. It re appeared at the Fall 2018 swap meet in restored condition. Who knows what might appear at the Spring 2019 swap meet? Hopefully it will be you.

    The CRCC will be electing new club officers and will be looking to fill our Bronze Idol News Letter Editor position. Now is a great time for you to
    step up and become involved it the Cash Register Club.

    Below are some photo's of a register found at the Fall 2017 swap meet. Same register resurfaced in restored condition at the Fall 2018 swap meet.
