BCCOCO News Summary 2020

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

Due to the ongoing virus outbreak, the club is not planning to meet in person at this time. An update will be posted when the club is able to start meeting again, or when the club schedules a virtual meeting. Also see the president's message.

Meeting Dates and Locations! The BCCOCO normally meets alternate months in Redmond and Bend, except as noted. See our calendar (or the information below) for complete details. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tueday, unless otherwise announced. Driving directions are posted on our calendar page. There are no club meetings in July or August. Also see the president's message.

Welcome! If you're new to numismatics or the club, or just looking for more information, welcome ... perhaps club members can help you learn more about what you've got, or help you enjoy collecting more.

Completed Club Events:

The club held its first two online meetings via Zoom on Nov. 24 and Dec. 8, 2020, both via Zoom. Club members were invited by email. Although participation was low, there was some excellent discussion, for about an hour both times. We'll try again in January, and will also post an advance notice on this website.

Although the club could not meet in person after March 2020, a few virtual show-and-tell items are available to view: April | May | June | September. (See June for the coin pictured here.)

The March 10, 2020 club meeting in Bend featured a "Coin 'More or Less' Price Game," this time with 20th Century U.S. coins from the January 2020 FUN Convention. We also had an excellent "Show & Tell," with 10 participants!

The February 11, 2020 club meeting in Bend featured a "Match the Coin with the Price" game with ten pre-20th Century U.S. and Colonial Coins sold at the recent Heritage Auctions at the January 2020 FUN Convention in Orlando, Florida. Congratulations to Walter for achieving a perfect score!

The January 14, 2020 club meeting in Bend featured a report on recent and upcoming numismatic events for 2020, including especially the just-completed Florida United Numismatists (FUN) convention in Orlando.
