September 2018 Newsletter

The September 2018 issue of the Olympin Club Newsletter is now available on the Olympin Club website for all members to view. The highlight of this issue is a report on the just-completed 24th World Olympic Collectors' Fair held at the Long Beach Convention Center in September. As you will read, the Fair was a great success with Olympic collectors from around the world descending on Long Beach to enjoy the trading, buying, and selling on the show floor. In the evening, participants had the opportunity to visit the LA Coliseum, LA84 Foundation, and the HMS Queen Mary as well as engage in spirited bidding at the traditional Silent Auction! Ron Finnigan provides an in-person review of the Barranquilla 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games complete with images of two dozen pins commemorating the event. Half a world away in Japan, Stratos Klimou reports on the exhibition of his outstanding collection of summer Olympic Torches to enthusiastic audiences around the greater Tokyo area.
