2008 Coin Shows, etc.:

The TACOMA-LAKEWOOD COIN CLUB 40TH SEMI-ANNUAL SHOW was held the weekend of October 25-26, 2008, and the club's fall meeting schedule was well underway (see below).

The TLCC received its 50-year ANA membership plaque at the ANA World’s Fair of Money® in Baltimore (July 30-August 3). Eric Holcomb received the plaque on behalf of the club, and will add a photo of the plaque to the memorabilia catalog.

Bigger Show! Puget Sound Area Collectors – Hope you didn't miss the PNNA Convention the weekend of April 4-6, 2008 in Tukwila, Washington. Over 80 dealers were set up at this event, and a number of TLCC members were there! See the convention report.

Coin Show! TACOMA-LAKEWOOD COIN CLUB 39TH SEMI-ANNUAL SHOW – The TLCC's 39th Semi-Annual Coin Show was held March 8-9, 2008 at the King Oscar Convention Center in South Tacoma. We also had our annual banquet the evening of the 8th at the Tacoma Elks.

2008 Meeting Programs:

December Holiday Party — The TLCC's December 2 monthly meeting continued the tradition of a holiday party catered by TLCC members Bonnie and Mike Zagorin. The food was excellent!!

Thanks to two of our summer grant recipients, Gary Wilson and Rick Schulz, for reporting at the November 4 meeting on their experiences traveling to Toronto, Ontario Canada to attend the Torex® Coin Show.

Thanks to Gary Willson for speaking on "The History and Treasure of the El Cazador" (a Spanish galleon loaded with silver coins headed for New Orleans) at the October 7 club meeting. "Interesting stuff," in the words of editor Rick Schulz.

Our first 2008 meeting was on January 8. Thanks to Eric Holcomb for giving an interesting illustrated talk on "Best of Show & Tell." As of February 26, Eric has relocated to Bend, Oregon, but continues to update the TLCC website.
