It was two years ago that I attended my first ever ANA Summer Seminar. I am so excited about being able to return in 2016. I called in the Fall of 2015 and spoke to Amber B. She was kind enough to keep me informed, so that I could sign up as soon as was possible.The first time I attended, I was part of the Second Session. I was unable to attend the First Session that year, because I was running the Kansas Numismatic Association's Annual Coin & Stamp Show in Wichita, KS. I was a regular board member of the KNA, then. The following year, I was doing the same, but due to my health I was unable to attend the Summer Session in 2015. I am still a KNA Board Member, but this is my last term as Vice President. This year is also my last year running the Kansas Numismatic Association's Annual Coin & Stamp Show, so I will only be attending the Second Session this year. I look forward to meeting new people who share the same interests. I am planning on driving all the way from Wichita, KS to Colorado Springs, CO. It's about an 8 hour drive, so I am driving in a day early on Friday, June 24th. This can help me acclimate to the altitude. I am a life long Kansan, which means that I'm a "flat lander". Look forward to seeing everyone again!
Enjoyed the Colorado Springs Seminar immensely, took the Level 2 Grading Class and gained knowledge on several issues. Also attended the Denver ANA Convention, enjoyed the exhibits and rarities in the Museum, visited with acquaintances from past shows and dealers, also found a superb sought after piece.
