AMBC Members Attend the AGM of GSM

Committee members of AMBC recently attended the AGM weekend of the German Gesellschaft fur Selbstspielende Musikinstrumente held at Schloss Benkhausen in Espelkamp, Westphalia.

The castle complex houses the headquarters of the Gauselmann group, the hotel where we stayed and also the Automaten Museum. The museum houses the private collection of coin-in-the-slot machines belonging to Paul Gauselmann, who the welcomed us to his museum and presented all delegates with a delightful model juke box.

As well as a conducted tour of this fascinating museum we were also taken by vintage bus  for a meal, beer tasting and tour of the Barre brewery.     

We were made very welcome and were pleased to meet up with so many friends, old and new.
