RPSL Regional Meeting in Conjunction with VICPEX, Victoria, British Columbia on 6 October 2018

Peter Newroth FRPSL and Ingo Nessel FRPSL are organising an RPSL Regional Meeting in the convention space for presentations at VICPEX 2018 on the afternoon of 6 October 2018, at the Comfort Inn, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province. This will follow on from a morning meeting of the Philatelic Specialists Society of Canada. It is planned that there will be three speakers at the RPSL Regional Meeting, and members may also submit exhibition entries. Contact Peter Newroth (details in the table above).

The Pacific North West Regional Group of the British North America Philatelic Society will also meet at the same location on 4-5 October. With the combination of three philatelic society gatherings, a dealers bourse and competitive exhibition, it is hoped that this will be a great, well-attended, social event. VICPEX is an annual gathering sponsored by three local stamp clubs, drawing philatelists from throughout Western Canada. Information about the show is available on the Victoria Stamps website.
