 Meeting Minutes:


Minutes of October, 2017 meeting.

Meeting was called to order by President Kraft. 8 members were in attendance. Paul H. took home the silver eagle. President Kraft is bringing pumpkin pie for the Nov. meeting.
Discussed the use of Gates Hall for future Coin A Rama shows. The Nevada school board is buying it and the City of Nevada expects to construct a replacement. We do have Gates reserved and paid for for the 2018 show.

INA show in Quad Cities area. Dave S. said that the exhibits were a success and brought his for display. Nicely done Dave. A good one generally requires a lot of work.

We also discussed inviting interested persons to submit ideas for exhibits at Coin A Rama.

Apparently some dealers were unhappy with the less than stellar turnout at the show. Attributed it to a lack of targeted or local advertising. Iím not sure if INA show garners the same interest as say Coin A Rama, but having it in a totally new location could also be a factor.

Most attendees brought coins for show and tell and for discussing their collector interests.
