The Calendar and Journal of our Meetings

 

Even though our previous years’ programmes are now history, it can be interesting to look back at the wide range of speakers and presentations which have both educated and entertained us.

A Narrative Account of our Season

6th June 2006

 

The last meeting of our 2005-6 programme was held on Tuesday 6th June, and took the form of a Competition Evening. The Club possesses three fine trophies which have been donated by various members, over the years, for different classes of philatelic merit.

 

The Leonard Rimmer Trophy is awarded to the winner of the Club Open Competition, entries for which may feature any philatelic subject chosen by the competitor, with the single exception of 'Thematic' displays. 9 sheets are required. This year the Trophy was won by Mr T Latto with his presentation of "The Postal History Of Lancashire."

 

The John Winter Thematic Trophy is awarded to the winner whose exhibit best develops a Theme, according to a logical plan, and using the information supplied by any or all types of appropriate philatelic material. 12 sheets are required. This year's winner was Mr B Kipps who took us on a guided tour "Motoring through Monaco."

 

The Norman Barlow Cup is awarded to the winner of a display of postage stamps of Great Britain, excluding the independent issues of the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, and Local issues. Either 9 or 12 sheets may be submitted. A study in black and red "The Imperforate Line Engraved Penny Stamps of Great Britain" by Mr C D Leather filled the Cup!

 

Judging the entries is done on the basis of marks awarded for each of a number of individual points. For the Leonard Rimmer Trophy, Arrangement and Mounting, Condition of the Exhibit, Writing Up, and the display of Philatelic Knowledge are assessed; for the John Winter Thematic Trophy, the categories are Writing up, Development of Theme, and Condition of Stamps; and for the Norman Barlow Cup the categories judged are Arrangement and Mounting, Relative Condition of Stamps, Philatelic Knowledge, and Writing Up. Different degrees of importance are attached to each category, for each trophy.

 

Four displays were entered for the Leonard Rimmer Trophy, four for the John Winter Thematic Trophy, and three for the Norman Barlow Cup, and all were of a high standard.

The trophies are held by winning members for twelve months, and their names join the list of previous winners engraved on each trophy.
