PICNIC & AUCTION IN THE PARK
The 2012 State of the Club Address
By President Carl Mujagic
Greetings fellow club members, numismatists, and coin collectors. I finally got around to putting an article in the newsletter. We have been extremely busy ever since Roy's coin shop closed down. My goals and agenda as president will be simple. More or less a back to basics approach to keeping the hobby alive.
First, we will try to increase club membership and attendance at meetings and events. Second, we will work on reinvigorating and creating a successful Young Numismatist (YN) program and to increase YN membership and attendance at club meetings and events.
Eventually, we will also be offering the newsletter in electronic format so please be sure to send us your email address. Also, make sure to "Like" us on Facebook - Anchorage Coin Club. We will be working to develop our Facebook page to share information and advertise about upcoming events.
A reminder that our annual July picnic and donation auction is only a few weeks away. It will be Saturday at noon July 7 at the Abbott Loop Community Park on Elmore Street a few blocks north of Abbott Road. We hope to see everyone there. Please bring your friends and family because it is always a great event with many auction bargains. It is a donation auction and we are still seeking numismatic items to sell. Please help support the club and donate your items. Items can be dropped off at Carl's University Center Tuesday through Friday noon to 6pm. The club will also be drawing the three winning tickets for the raffle prizes. We still have tickets left to sell so please be sure to get yours as we will be giving away the prizes at the July 7 picnic (you need not be present to win).
At our last few coin club meetings we have had approximately 50 - 60 auction lots with many items selling at bargain prices. We encourage everyone to bring their friends and family to take advantage of these great numismatic deals.
Our 25th anniversary of the Anchorage Coin Club is soon approaching. The club encourages all members to submit designs for our 25th anniversary coin. Designs, drawings, artwork and concepts can be submitted directly to the club.
The club is also in need of anyone who would like to give a short presentation at any future meetings. Topics may include series or types of coin collecting, currency, tokens, toning, grading, etc.
Please bring your ideas to a coin club meeting. We are open to all good ideas and always willing to learn something new.
We hope to see everyone at the July 7 meeting summer picnic BBQ and auction.
Sincerely, Your President Carl.
Two prizes given out:
* Door prize of a 1998-P Washington Quarter ANACS MS-61,and
* Membership prize of 1880 Indian Cent graded NGC Fine.
Reminder to everyone that we have our July 7th (Saturday afternoon) club picnic. This summer picnic will serve as our club's July meeting date. Accordingly, there will be no club meeting on Wednesday, July 4th.
The Summer picnic will start at 12 noon that Saturday at the Abbott Community Park pavilion (located on Elmore Street just before you get to Abbott Loop Road). The picnic will run through the afternoon. We have the pavilion reserved for our club's use.
We are asking that if your last name starts with the letters A-M, bring a salad or dessert. If you last name starts with N-Z bring a side dish. The club will supply the hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, dips, soda pop, plates, forks, spoons, napkins, and knives.
The highlight of the picnic will be the club's yearly Donation Coin Auction in which members donate coins and numismatic items that we auction off. Proceeds from the donation auction benefit the club's programs. Members were encouraged to donate coins and bring them in at the picnic for the Donation Coin Auction.
At the picnic our club's raffle coins will be raffled with three luck winners that day. Final raffle tickets will be sold that day ($ 5/each ticket).
Presentation by Stan Mead on his trip and experience at the ANA Convention in Colorado Springs. Among the locations visited were the U.S. Mint and ANA Museum while at the convention.
Following presentation, club's monthly coin auction was conducted.
Meeting ended following the coin auction.
With six members in attendance the meeting began a 7 pm. After review John gave us a report on the sales of raffle tickets. The conclusion was the we needed more to exceed the break even point.
Stan summed up the food situation for the picnic. We will be good if you bring your side dish. Stan will pick up more sodas for the event.
YN education plans using money gained from the upcoming auction was discussed. A club coin collection to be put on display before and after coin presentations was suggested but care taking of the collection was going to be a problem.
