The Space Unit of the American Philatelic Society will have our national meeting on Saturday, September 20, 3 pm in the afternoon, in conjunction with the Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition (PNSE). Anyone is welcome - you don’t have to be a member – just have an interest in space stamps or covers.

The PNSE show will be held at the Valley Forge Convention Center, 1200 First Ave., King of Prussia, Pa. The show will be open September 19 - 21.

Come to the meeting on Saturday the 20th to meet fellow Space Unit members from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, DC, Texas, and Illinois (that we know of so far!). AND BRING TRADE STUFF! We usually top off our meeting with trade sessions that have been known to spill out into the halls and parking lots! The survivors (and anyone else who wants to join us) will go to dinner at Maggino’s Restaurant at 7:30 that evening. Maggino’s is at 205 Mall Blvd in King of Prussia, phone 610-992-3333. Maggino’s serves an all-you-can-eat family style Italian meal for $22.95.

Also at the show, see a bunch of heavy-duty astrophilatelic exhibits including: Ben Ramkisoon's gold medal winning "Development of US Lunar Exploration", Steve Durst's "German Rocket Team Influence on the US Space Program", Dennis Dillman's "From Muroc to the Millenium: A Study of Edwards AFB", John Macco’s “Apollo Soyuz Test Project”, Ray Cartier’s “A Study of NASA VIP Cards”, and (I'm not sure whose exhibit this is) "Yuri Gagarin and the Covers of Poland".

Make your plans now!
