Jan 10th: COMPETITION NIGHT – Members

The Falkirk Stamp and Post Card Club welcomed the New Year by hosting the Annual Competition, which was run under three sections, namely material from G. Britain, General theme and Thematic entries.

Sadly, partly due to illness this year, entries were down, which suggests that the club still welcomes new members.

The entries for the G.B section were (a) “Greetings” depicting first day covers on films portraying ”The Kiss”;- (b) a 12 page entry on Airmail Letters, generally depicting items of Scottish interest, and (c ) the Post Office afloat showing the vast styles and purposes of shipping on British stamps. The chosen winner being Mike Turnbull’s item (c).

The General Section was easier to define a winner, in that Jim Young’s neat entry on Austrian stamps had no opposition.

The Thematic section attracted three entries, namely; – Something “fishy” from Tuvalu;- The Impressionist Painters;- and Catapult Mail from ship to plane, the eventual winner submitted by Mike Turnbull.

Mike completed a hat trick of wins by securing the President’s choice of best liked.
