CTCC ANA Pittsburg Meeting Notes: Scott Loos, CTCC Treasurer, has graciously provided a brief report of the recent CTCC meeting at ANA ANA World's Fair of Money® in Pittsburgh which I've further summarized here.

The 20 CTCC members in attendance discussed items that Gregg Moore, CTCC President, had provided including: pros and cons regarding an online edition of the CTCC Journal, online billing options for club membership, a website displaying conder types, and the possibility of publishing the CTCC Journal in house and in color. Jerry Bobbe then gave a short program on some of the personalities from the conder collecting community from the past.

Contact Gregg Moore ( or visit the Conder Token Collector's Club web site for further CTCC info.
