The 30th G.P.S. Gala Convention and. . . Blow-out will be at the popular Hunt Valley Inn, just north of Baltimore. Plans have been underway for sometime to provide everyone with a good and prosperous time. Matthew Bennett is gathering a large German area auction for the Convention, which will be held during the BALPEX Labor Day weekend, in September of 1979.

As mentioned before, lack of communications at Toronto resulted in a minimum exchange of ideas, unless one happened to meet a compatriot at the Hospitality Suite or at the Banquet, and you could converse over the ambient noise. We saw Werner Bohne at Rickenback’s stall and promised to meet later, but we must wait until next time to ex change papers and ideas. Heinz Pauli, a temporarily displaced German (courtesy of IBM) now working in New York, spent much time discussing the Danzig scene from his interesting viewpoint. Mr. Quidzinski and his lovely wife introduced themselves at the Banquet, and it was good to visit with Canadians who have been long-time members of DSG. Unfortunately, Peter Theuss and I missed seeing each other thru out the weekend. Angus Parker, of London’s Argyll Etkin, Ltd., was met at his company’s stall. Extra efforts will be made at future meetings to allow Danzig collectors to meet at an appropriate time.
