Dear Susan,

I don’t know who will be attending the Sarasota show.  I will be there.

I can’t answer about Zeppelin airmails, as I am not familiar with them.

I suggest you contact Cheryl Ganz at cherylganz@..., as she is a Zeppelin expert.

I can use your help in manning the AAMS table at the show.  Please let me know what days and hours you can help.

The Australian Airmail Society in conjunction with the South Australian Philatelic Council will host Aeropex 2019 at the popular Torrens Parade Ground Drill Hall in Adelaide 6-8 December 2019.

 This will be an all-classes national philatelic exhibition conducted under the auspices of the Australian Philatelic Exhibition.  All exhibits will have a dedicated aviation theme and can be entered as competitive or non-competitive.  The Australian Philatelic Federation will also draw on the countries with whom they have judging and exhibiting accords to attract some of the best airmail exhibits from around the world.

 This will be a special event among many celebrating the epic flight from England to Australia made by Adelaide's own Ross and Keith Smith together with mechanics Wally Shiers and James Bennett.  Departing England in a Vickers Vimy bomber the crew arrived in Australia on 10 December 1919 after a trip taking 28 days.  They also brought with them 364 letters from England and places en route, the first international air mail received in Australia.

 More information will be released at a later date.

Subject: WESTPEX 2018 - - SFO Museum - - American Air Mail Society

Going to take a little break from our discussions on Boulder City airmail and also the Carole Lombarde crash.  I need to give a little plug to WESTPEX 2018 which is an all year volunteer effort by Edie, my being her computer technical consultant.  Also a little "marketing" plug for the SFO Museum and the American Air Mail Society.  Just not going to be able to pursue our conversations to near the extent I have been; the last month before the WESTPEX show gets to be pretty intense around here.  



1.  WESTPEX 2018 is one of the nicest if not nicest philatelic (stamp) shows in the US.


It is scheduled for April 27-28 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront Hotel

http://www.westpex.org/      The website for WESTPEX - go here to see many more details of this year's event.

People from all over the US visit this show and even international visitors.

It is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit event that promotes philately through extensive education and has an absolutely outstanding youth program.


2.  The American Air Mail Society (AAMS) is not only going to be one of the Featured Societies this year at WESTPEX 2018, they will be having their annual convention here as well with a whole host of programs, meetings, and presentations open to the public.  Any one having any interest in any aspect of Air Mail, this is a must attend opportunity.

http://www.americanairmailsociety.org     The website for AMMS.  On the left click on Next Convention for all the details.

3.  The SFO Museum   Just a short free shuttle ride away (about 5 minutes) is the absolutely wonderful SFO Museum in the San Francisco International Museum.  Yes, they do have philatelic items in their collection, they have a small amount of philatelic literature in their library, and their charter is the Development of Commercial Aviation in the Pacific Rim.  For instance, it would be a wonderful place to do some research if you had interest in PanAm Clipper Mail I would think.
https://www.flysfo.com/museum         The web site for the SFO Musuem, You really need to visit this website.

This museum is absolutely fabulous.  They not only have exhibits throughout the airport, they do indeed have their own two story museum in the International Terminal with exhibits and a most wonderful library on the second floor.



How could anyone with an interest in Air Mail miss this opportunity, WESTPEX 2018, the American Air Mail Society, and the SFO Museum all in the same immediate area and at the same time.



Please feel free to forward this message to anyone who you think might have interest.


silly question

GreyOldDave
 

I wonder if any of you might be a Radio Amateur (aka ham) and also a member of the ARRL.  I need someone to do a search of their journal (QST) from their online article index that is only available to members.
I'm doing an Aero exhibit about Wake Island and there have been a number of trips made by these radio guys to Wake before and after the war and I'd like to know about how many trips they made. They make radio contact with people around the world and then send out postcards (sometimes by airmail btw) to verify the radio contacts during these expeditions.    That little factoid should be easy to get from their article index.
Cheers.

Friends,
There have been a number of instances recently that people we know seem to contact us asking for money for one reason or another, like being stranded somewhere or need to pay a bill for our organization. These are all fakes. Don't respond, don't open attachments.
