New Jersey Arms Collectors Club
Meeting Schedule
Currently, Regular Meetings are held at 7:00 pm, on the THIRD THURSDAY of the month at the Kenilworth Veteran's Center.

The meeting area is a large hall with ample table space for members to display their collections. Members are encouraged to bring and display their collectables, specially if they fall into the Arms Theme of the Month.

Board meetings are held on the First Friday of the month and are open only to board members.

To encourage participation in club activities and meetings, each monthly meeting consists of an informal display of collectibles based upon the Theme of the Month, a short formal club meeting and an informative seminar on a topic relevant to the club. Topics have included sword collecting, WWI pilots from NJ, German Edged Weapons, Military Sniper Rifles, Sporting Shotguns, Bench Rest Shooting and a host of others.

The club is always looking for someone to present information on their favorite topic related to club activities.

NOTE: Members may contact the president and request a specific theme that interests them whether it is Modern Sporting Arms, Specific Handguns, Edged Weapons, or any other relevant collectable they may wish to display.


The following table lists our upcoming meeting schedule and proposed Theme of the Month.
