Meeting fellow collectors in person is certainly a possibility when you join BCS. The Society holds an Annual Meeting where all the formalities of the Society are conducted. Since we are a global society you will naturally be included in the local nationwide adhoc meetings. Local groups include the United States and the United Kingdom.

BCS member David Provost has eaten here many times and speaks highly of this restaurant. It is seven blocks from the show site (a short cab ride or good walk). Prices are typical NYC prices for dinner. I will need a head count by Thursday noon of the show. You will help me to sleep better if you email (firstname.lastname@example.org), text or call (608-852-7359) me as soon as you know that you plan to attend the dinner or leave your name at our table at the show.
