Greetings Members & Friends!

Summer is racing by at a heated clip! We once again had a great BBQ at the Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek. Unfortunately, a few members missed it due to discrepancies in the date of the event and untimely release of the Diablo Die Break from computer issues. While many of us put in the needed extra effort to run this club, some of us have full time jobs and a non-coin collecting life that gets in the way so these things happen occasionally. Having said that, there is no excuse for a club member missing our annual BBQ because of incorrect information, so I take full responsibility and want to send out my sincerest apology to those few that missed the event.

We will be making some changes to our Diablo Die Break and Dave Davis has agreed to take the lead here for the remainder of 2018. One enhancement will be to provide a more comprehensive summary of the prior club meeting activity, we also want to ramp up adding interesting numismatic articles and then get it published at the optimum time in between monthly meetings. Please provide feedback once the next issue is released so we can continually improve our club’s newsletter. Thanks so much to Maria Stillwagon for her tenure in publishing the Die Break!

Our next major event is the October Coin show. Volunteer lists will be passed around at the meetings leading up to the coin show and we need all hands-on deck to participate so we have a successful show; especially given the absence of James Laird who was so instrumental in making sure that this show ran so smoothly. Also, we will be preparing coin show post cards at 6:00PM in the smaller meeting room prior to the regular September club meeting. If you can assist you will be rewarded with Pizza & Soda!

A special thanks to Bruce Berman who set up at our June meeting as a coin dealer…he was well received. We welcome some of our other club member coin dealers to set up as this is now a standing invitation at every meeting. Our first auction in many years also went well and we plan to possibly hold more auctions on a quarterly basis so stay tuned.

Aside from our October Coin Show Our final event in 2018 will be the annual Christmas Banquet at Zio Fraedo’s…details coming soon.

Until next time,
