And There will be another contest. Of some sort.

 

Planning Ahead for the AUGUST Meeting…

We have our exhibition frames – now let’s use them. Create your own ONE PAGE exhibit. Handwritten, typewritten, computer generated, it doesn’t matter. One pagers are simple in concept & execution. Take a small topic, show an example or two with a few lines of text & that’s it. Some topics that might spur your thoughts include: Your favorite stamp; or least favorite stamp; the ugliest stamp (Romania’s 1970 stamp “honoring” Beethoven is Larry’s choice); a single cover analysis; a single stamp with an oddity like a double transfer; an error in stamp design (The Vegas Statue of Liberty); a simple color comparison, like the various shades that can be found on US #563.

Robert Taylor and Larry Oliver will be judges and there will be prizes!

The Club’s 2015 Scott Catalogues, Volumes 1 thru 6, A to Z, will be at the meeting plus the Club’s 2012 US Specialized & World Classics 1840 -1940
And, as always, Door Prizes and the 50-50

See you there!
