Still Time For Show Event Tickets

Opportunity Knocks Again For Fun at AMERICOVER 2010

There’s still time to join in the fun before, during and after AMERICOVER 2010. There are still tickets available for several events.

AMERICOVER 2010, a World Series of Philately stamp show and convention, will be held August 6-8 at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook in Oak Brook, Ill.

The day before the show opens, Thursday, August 5, there's a "field trip" to the Field Museum, which features permanent exhibitions on the Ancient Americas, Nature and Ecosystems, Rocks and Fossils, and dinosaurs. The package includes transportation to and from the show hotel, and basic museum admission. Tickets are $40.

After the show closes Sunday night, the 8th, some of those attending the stamp show will dine and be entertained at Tommy Gun's Garage, an audience interactive speakeasy featuring a musical comedy review "wit da gangsters and da flappers." Again, transportation is included in the package. The price is $70.

There are also food events during AMERICOVER 2010. The President's Banquet is held Friday night. The annual AFDCS cachet contest winners will be announced at the end of the evening, making it a must-see event. Banquet tickets are $65.

First day cover collectors find it hard to tear themselves away from the AMERICOVER Cachetmakers Bourse, the largest held anywhere this year. So that night's food event is late, around 9 p.m., and features sandwiches. The cost is $35.

A convenient online registration system is available simply by clicking here.

AMERICOVER 2010 also features a commercial dealers bourse and a cachetmakers bourse, a national-level exhibition of first day covers, a forum by a postal official involved with first day covers, seminars, meetings, a youth table, the Stamps in The Attic quick collection evaluation service, and an auction. Admission to the show and parking are free.
