Oregon Stamp Society members promoted the show on Portland's local TV station KATU 2, on the Northwest program hosted by Carl Click.

The program was aired live at 9am on Friday 1 September.

The show opened on Saturday with brisk business at the dealer tables, but it had quietened down somewhat by Sunday afternoon.

Georgia is looking at the exhibits and Bill is at far left. Now Bill will have to get serious, and enter it in the APS Stampshow next year! The critique was informative and encouraging, so I may rework my exhibit for the APS Stampshow here in Portland next year.

The exhibits were of a higher standard than the judges expected, and they ran out of gold ribbons!

Bill Seymour won gold for his one-frame exhibit of New Zealand stamp Papers from the Reign of King George V.

And I won gold and grand for my New Hebrides / Nouvelles-Hébrides!

The complete list of exhibit results can be found on the Oregon Stamp Society website.
