:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: The Postmark Collectors Club (http://www.postmarks.org) is holding their Annual Convention at the Hotel, August 8-10, so I will be there for most of that. There are some Postcrossers in the PMCC and there is a fun overlap between these hobbies. The Convention usually has a Postal Outlet on-site so I will request they carry postcard and international stamps for purchase. The Convention will also have a commemorative postmark for our cards. I will bring special postcards for the occasion. We will have a table and meeting spot in the โ€˜main roomโ€™. The convention attendance is getting small each year (~30-45), but it is a warm, friendly bunch. You are welcome to sign-up for the convention (not mandatory!), there are plenty of freebies and sales tables. On Friday there is an โ€˜ice creamโ€™ walk later in the afternoon and we are going to York Revolution Baseball game that night. Terry.

This sounds fun! Iโ€™m a MAYBE at this point-- not exactly sure when Iโ€™ll be getting back to the east coast after a road trip. Will update my RSVP in a month or so.

FYI - A postcard themed pictorial postmark will be available at the NAPEX stamp show in McLean VA on June 8. In past years, the postmarks have been announced in the USPS Postal Bulletin with instructions on where you can request it. For more info on the show visit NAPEX.org

For those that cannot attend the stamp show, information was finally posted in the May 30, 2024 Postal Bulletin.
