Columbus club cancels annual show

The Columbus Philatelic Club has cancelled the Colopex 2023 stamp show, according to a statement on the club’s website and in the January 2023 issue of its newsletter, the Columbian.

“Due to the Great American Stamp Show in Cleveland, the club has chosen to cancel this year’s show in Columbus as it is too close to that event,” the website said.

The announcement in the Columbian said that “the show site has become highly uncooperative.”

Colopex, an American Philatelic Society World Series of Philately show, was originally scheduled for June 9-10 in Columbus, Ohio. The Great American Stamp Show will take place Aug. 10-13 in Cleveland, Ohio. Columbus and Cleveland are roughly 150 miles apart.The Columbus Philatelic Club plans to hold Colopex again in 2024.For more information on Colopex 2024, write to the Columbus Philatelic Club, Attn: Show Chairman, Box 20582, Columbus, OH 43220-0582.
