|Volume 49 No. 1||January 2003|
It has been about one year since the club's automated and unmoderated email list was discontinued. Recently, Carl Wolf took it upon himself to reactivate the list as a manually operated list. Using feedback from list users and advise from Bill Burd and Paul Hybert, the club's list is back in a new form.
Our members have a variety of Ethernet and email capabilities, so we will offer three email list options. Review the following group descriptions, decide which group is right for you, and then email your preferred group to Carl. (The groups are distinguished by amount of traffic.) Of course you will be able to change or drop this at any time, simply by emailing Carl again.
Important club notices that cannot wait until the next Chatter issue. These will not contain pictures or large items; this is perfect for receiving email at work, or if you have a slow dial-up connection.
All group-1 emails, plus the requests for assistance we receive. Examples are: "How can I get more information on ..." and "What do I have and what is it worth?" These can very likely contain images and be quite large.
Group-3 All group-2 emails, plus everything else we receive, if it is related to numismatics. This can include: ANA & ANS press releases; list of items for sale; promotion of numismatic web sites; and more things from people we never heard of. Selecting this group could send many large emails your way, and much could be duplicates if you already check web sites, read newsgoups, and are on email lists.
If you have an announcement for the club's members, email it to Carl and he will send it to the appropriate groups. Carl's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The exhibiting of numismatic materials is an important component of the Chicago Coin Club monthly meetings. Exhibits are evaluated on a peer basis. The member score sheet for each exhibitor is accumulated over a year and each exhibitor's point total reconciled. The person receiving the most points is the recipient of the coveted Cabeen Award.
The following are brief descriptions of the persons recognized this evening as top CCC exhibitors. My descriptions are something of a snapshot view with a touch of humor.
Mark Wieclaw - nearly always exhibits ancients (possibly his true numismatic affection) along with a category called "guess what came over the counter" at the coin store or a similar contemporary theme. Both the ancient and other categories of his exhibits are solidly presented with neat information.
Bob Weinstein - the exhibitor of coins from the middle of time. (By middle I mean, post ancient and pre the rest of time!) This is the equivalent of saying Bob's coins are after the year 400 and before 1400. They originate from countries which alway raise the question in my mind: "Why don't I remember ever hearing of that nation/place in school!?"
