2009 Fall Convention Report from The Nor'wester:

Your editor travelled to Portland, OR to attend the annual fall convention co-sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) and the Willamette Coin Club (WCC), October 24-25, 2009. Although we regret that ANA Governor Walt Ostromecki became ill with the flu and was unable to run the popular YN program at the show this year, the show did go on, with the Reinders family filling in, not only to run the YN treasure hunt, but also placing eight cases of non-competitive exhibits. Father James Reinders and daughter Katie had attended “The Art of Money” course at ANA Summer Seminar, and displayed their plaster “coin” models! (Click on image to enlarge.)
