2015 Greater Reno Stamp & Cover Show

Reprinted from the Post Boy, NSSS Newsletter, August 2015

The total attendance for the two day show was 414. Saturday was a very busy day for the dealers, Sunday was a little slower but still busy. The exhibit judges, Ed Laveroni and Larry Crain, did a great job critiquing each exhibit. The Awards Dinner was a catered buffet at the bowling stadium. Food was in abundance and most of the 25 attendees had seconds.

Unfortunately, pictures of the award presentations were lost when our photographer accidently deleted pictures from the camera memory card. In the future, we need more than one volunteer photographer to ensure this does not happen again. Over 100 photos were taken during the show and will be posted on the website in another week or so.

All the show pictures can be watched at the August 22 membership meeting as a slideshow.

The big surprise at the Awards Dinner was the presentation of the Chaloner Trophy to Harvey and Terri Edwards by David McNamee and Vesma Grinfelds from the Council of Northern California Philatelic Societies. David also gave recognition to Dick Dreiling for his 40 years membership in the NSSS and specifically for Chairing the NEVPEX Show Committee from 1981 to the late 1990s.

A full summary of the stamp show will be presented as a meeting program on August 22. This is the forum to discuss the good, bad, and the ugly (don’t want that to happen again) things about the show to make it even better next year. Here is a collage of show pictures.
