Our coin show was a big hit! Dealers I talked to mentioned they had a good day. We counted 390 people attended the show. Good weather was with us and the day was busy from 9 to 4pm. Exhibits at the show provided by Jack Draak, Lyle Laurersdorf, Tom Hagan, Randy Raikes, John Watta and Dave Hunsicker. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped setup and worked the show. We put on a great coin show and definitely showed what a fine club we have .
