Oklahoma City Stamp Club Meets This Tuesday

OKLAHOMA CITY STAMP CLUB MEETS THIS TUESDAY, APRIL 3 at 7 PM

OK, So you didn’t win the $640 million jackpot.  And by Tuesday evening the Final Four Will be HISTORY !  So, What Should You Do?  

Come to the OCSC and hear a great program by Charles Wallis –  “Lighter than Air”.   No, he isn’t talking about going on a spring diet to lose weight. 

 So come and find out what he IS talking about.

At our last meeting a motion was made to raise OCSC dues from $12/yr to $15/yr, From $4/yr for spouses to $5/yr. and from $2/yr for youth to $3/yr.  The motion was placed on the table until the April 3rd meeting to give everyone the opportunity to participate in voting on this question.   Your vote counts so be there.   The need for funds is due to increasing standard club costs.  In case you are wondering, it has nothing to do with OKPEX,  which keeps separate books entirely. 

We have received the new APS Circuit that includes most of the club favorite subjects:

Europa                                            Europa CEPT  Northern European Countries

Great Britain & Br. Empire             Great Britain

Estonia #1-N5                                Canada, mostly used  (2)

Japan #68-508                                Japan #566-2838

Greece #66-RA86                           Greece #2004a-NRA1 + Some Crete

Sweden 2000-2006 used               Sweden #6-#1703 plus booklets & postage dues

U.S. 19th Century (2)                       U.S. 19th & 20th Century

 Sounds like a lot of fun to me !!!
