Old Business

 

December Coin Show “Winter Show”:

Larry: This was a good show, considering we were competing with the Packer Game, and headline news of the capture of Saddam Hussein.  There was a small turnout, but good sales.  The show finished early (3 pm).  If the Club wants to do the Winter Show again next December, suggest doing it on a Saturday, as a shopping day.

Roy: will check with the Holiday Inn for Saturday dates.

 

Analysis of the entry forms for the Show drawings:  There were 67 individual forms, when the multiple entries were discarded.  Some people marked several advertising sources on their forms.  The total checkmarks obtained for each type of advertising are as follows:

Friend                     14

Road Sign              2

Show Poster          4

Coin Dealer           4

Leader Telegram   16

Tradin’ Post          6 (4 from one family)

Coin World           3

Numism. News      7

TV                           0

Radio                      0

10 entries were from Club Members, 10 forms had nothing marked for advertising, 9 forms had multiple marks for advertising.

 

Christmas party:

Jerry: Mrs. Urdahl wants to know why wives aren’t attending the Christmas Party.  There were very few there! 

Larry:  We will do more to encourage attendance of spouses at the next Party.

 

At the Christmas Party, JOHN TESTER was presented with a Trophy from the Club, in recognition of his outstanding services. He has been an active member for many years; has produced the Club website and continues to keep it updated; produced forms, posters, etc.  He also is a Past President of the Club.

 

Club Brochure:

John T. is working on the Club Brochure.  Anyone with ideas, please contact him.

Jerry:  suggests adding a note about the history of the Club

Roy: could we obtain a date for when the Club started?

Catherine: we have on file a letter from Don Johnson, outlining some of his memories of the CVCC history.  We could incorporate some of the information in the Pamphlet. 

Roy has a complete set of the wooden nickels, issued by the Club at shows.

Bob: will still try to investigate about including the brochure in the packets of local advertising flyers that come in the mail.

Spring Show:

Members can now reserve their tables for the CVCC show on April 18th.    You have until February 15 to reserve tables, and then it will be open to other non-Club-member dealers. There will be 22 tables.  Roy has volunteered to be Bourse Chairman.  He will have applications to pass out at his Show on February 15th. 

John T:  For people coming to the show, we could have a little packet to hand out, containing a flyer, history of the Club, and perhaps a flip with a wheat penny in it and Club details.

 

Business portion of meeting closed at 8:27 pm

 

The floor was then given to Kelly O’B to address the Club.  He recounted some great experiences of obtaining coin bargains at thrift sales.  He then presented a special token of appreciation to JOHN DURAN, whom he met about 3 years ago.  John revived Kelly’s interest in collecting ancient coins.  Kelly made a beautifully hand-tooled leather wallet which he presented to John.

 

Education Session:

John T. gave a great presentation on US Currency – describing the printing process, and showing mishaps which have occurred in the printing process and not noticed before being released into circulation – error notes, folds, ink blobs, etc.  Very informative and entertaining!
