MEPSIRREY 2010 - OCTOBER BULLETIN
 
We have READY the EXHIBITION RULES and INSCRIPTION FORMS for MEPSIRREY 2010.
 
For those wishing to participate as exhibitors please contact me directly at jbvmty@gmail.com
 
The auction of LA FILATELIA MEXICANA is going to be a BIG ONE and Fernando is considering holding it on two sessions. More info in upcoming bulletins.
 
We are still waiting for the Tour Operator to finalize the pricing for the REAL DE CATORCE trip. It might take a couple of months still. At any rate, we are adopting a "No-Money-Down", "No-Cancelation-Fee" policy; so if you are interested in joing us please let me know to the emaill above and I will reserve space for you. Single (one Queen/King size bed), double, and triple (three twin size beds) are still available. All rooms with bathroom (Shower or Bathtube).
 
*******
On another matter: I am sad to report the untimely death of Maria Cristina ("Cristi"), wife of our friend Pascual Ortega, Vicepresident of the Federacion Mexicana de Filatelia. Cristi was an enthusiastic philatelist herself and will be missed. They had a daughter Erika.
 
Condolences may be sent to pascualog@yahoo.com.mx

Saludos a todos...
Jaime

MEPSIRREY 2010 AUGUST UPDATE
 
The Judgeing panel is now complete. We will have 4 Judges, as in the past we like to have representatives from all areas of the Country and one International Judge since this is an international show - Mexico North, Mexico Central-Southeast, Mexico West, MEPSI. Our thanks to the four Judges who have so generously given their talent, expertise, and time to help make our show a success.
 
Next month we will be circulating the rules and inscription forms to those interested in showing their collections in Monterrey.
 
Please check MEXICANA (July and October 2009 issues) for schedule and hotel information as well as the Real de Catorce post-evet side trip.

Sorry to all for the delay in posting this bulletin, but had some personal matters to attend.
 
The Exhibition and Show are comming along fine. We should be sending out some more precise information in September for those who wish to exhibit collections, and general info in the Oct. issue of MEXICANA.
 
The Real de Catorce side trip is generating a lot of interest and should be a great experience.
 
Hope you are including MEPSIRREY 2010 in your plans and join us in celebrating the bicentenial year.
 
Be well everybody!
