The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) recently announced its 90th convention, “Royal*2018*Royale,” will be returning to St. Catharines, Ont. in June 2018.
The show—sponsored and organized by the St. Catharines Stamp Club—will be held on the weekend of June 22-24, 2018 at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites and the adjoining Parkway Convention Centre, which is the same venue that held the 2009 RPSC Convention.
This year’s organizing committee will be chaired by RPSC Director Stuart Keeley, and past president of the Canadian Stamp Dealers’ Association Roy Houtby will once again serve as bourse chairman. RPSC Vice-President Rod Paige and Vic Potter will serve as exhibit co-chairs, and Jim Glen is treasurer. St Catharines Stamp Club member Les Molnar and President Dave Hillier will also join the organizing committee.
Detailed information for Royal*2018*Royale will be available following this year’s show in Boucherville, Que.
