2010 Show Cachetmakers Bourse

Year's Biggest Cachetmakers Bourse Planned for AMERICOVER 2010

AMERICOVER 2010, the American First Day Cover Society's annual World Series of Philately stamp show and convention, will host the biggest cachetmakers bourse of the year in the Chicago suburbs.

AMERICOVER 2010 will be held August 6-8 at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook in Oak Brook, Ill., and the Moonlight Cachetmakers Bourse will be held Saturday afternoon and evening.
A cachetmakers bourse is an event where producers of first day covers – those who design and print the "cachets" or designs on FDCs – sell their products. They are only permitted to sell their own cachets, during a limited time. In this case, the Moonlight Cachetmakers Bourse will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. It's considered by many a highlight of AMERICOVER.

Many of last year's participants have already signed up for the 2010 edition, but "we have plenty of room for Cachetmakers and the room at Chicago is fantastic for the Cachetmakers Bourse!" says bourse chairman Ralph Achgill.

The table fee for a Cachetmakers Table is $100, but there is a $10.00 discount for each night the cachetmaker is staying at the show hotel, up to two nights. In addition, the special AMERICOVER rate at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook this year is $99.

Cachetmakers who wish to sign up can download the application or contact Achgill at rkcovers@yahoo.com, c/o RKA Covers, PO Box 6508, Lafayette, IN 47903, or by telephone at (765) 543-8274.

AMERICOVER 2010 also features a commercial dealers bourse, a national-level exhibition of first day covers, a banquet, meetings, a youth table, a hospitality suite, an auction, seminars, a pre-show area tour and a post-show dinner event. A forum by a postal official involved with first day covers is also likely.
