December 2022 Newsletter

Greetings to our members! Things have been happening in your Club. A big positive was the recent and successful Colorado Springs Olympin Festival. But its success was overshadowed by the passing of Sid Marantz. Tributes to our vice-president are included in this newsletter. Once again we are blessed to have interesting articles submitted by our own members. Josh Waller’s coverage of the Paris 2024 pins is a must-read. Plus info on Paris ticketing! At the back, see the latest Olympin sale of past member badges. The June 2023 AICO Fair in Paris is also covered.

To view the newsletter, please log in to the Members Area of the website.
