F.U.N. SHOW REPORT
We took 51 on our bus trip to Winter F.U.N. Show, Thursday, January 10, 2019! We want to thank Rich Selvar for securing the bus, arranging the trip and enlisting North Lake C.C. and Buffalo C.C. to join with the Ocala C.C. We had a great experience at F.U.N. Guests at the show totaled 9,500 people this year compared to 8,000 last winter in Tampa.
We WON! The Ocala Coin Club won first place in the Club Exhibits category! We thank John Miller for setting up our exhibit and enabling us to place 1st! We also received a certificate from T.E.C. (The Elongated Cent organization for our use of "stretched pennies" known correctly as elongated cents.)
John also exhibited his own materials. He placed 2nd in the Errors category and 3rd place in the Token Category. He also the only person certified to become an A.N.A. exhibit judge at this F.U.N. show. (Six others tried out for this title and only 1 received it!)
Congratulations to our President, Mark Trout, for bering elected to the F.U.N. Board of Directors. We appreciate that our nominee received the votes to be elected to this state-wide office; thanks to all who supported him and to the other officers and Board Members who were elected!
