SINCE THIS IS VALENTINES DAY- BRING AN OKLAHOMA VALENTINE IF YOU HAVE ONE. Everyone is also asked to bring 1 or 2 OTHER items for show and tell – plus their extra Oklahoma Covers to sell or trade.

Brady says this meeting will not last past 9 PM as is our custom.
Tomorrow night RIck Grosshans will present 100 Years of Scouting thru Philately. This is his most Popular Exhibit at OKPEX 2010, expanded to complete the centennial year. It is just back from the Champion of Champions Most Popular competition in Charleston, SC at StampExpo. Unfortunately the Boy Scouts were defeated by a group of Confederate General’s letters, but it is still an honor to be invited. In fact, Grosshans has been asked to show the exhibit at other shows later this year since it is so current and topically popular.
We should have had an OPS circuit, but the APS circuit did not arrive.
