HOAWRD DANIEL'S DENVER ANA DIARY

Howard A. Daniel III writes: "I drove from the DC Beltway on I-270
and I-70 to Terre Haute and Kansas City to visit two collectors, then
to Colorado with a shortcut on CO-24 to Colorado Springs.  After
visiting some friends there for the weekend, I dropped off two boxes
of catalogs and references for the Library and another box for the
Museum on Monday.  There is a HUGE stack of previous donations needing
to be processed.  They could use some volunteers to process them but
they have to be knowledgeable, and be willing to do other work too.

After driving up I-25, I checked into the Holiday Inn near the Colorado
Convention Center.  Almost immediately, I received a call from Joe
Boling that he was not going to be there that day because he was driving
on to Colorado Springs to make his own donation to the ANA Library.  The
next morning, I went to the convention center and assisted several people
with setting up their booths before setting up my own for NBS, NI, IBNS
and the Philippine Collectors Forum, which was located on the bourse and
just inside the entrance!

Most of the first two days were spent stuffing baggies with coins from
NI members and a note from IBNS members along with a form I created to
tell new and young collectors the source of the pieces.  This form was
also used in the references donated by NBS and others.  Over 200
references were given to collectors in the name of the NBS!  The form
also included the information on how to join all four organizations in
hopes some people will be signing up.

I brought some of the better donated references to the NBS Meeting and
some ANA Convention memorabilia from Wayne Homren for the auction.
There was also an interesting talk by David Sklow about his new job
(Director, Library and Research) at the ANA and some future actions
that will be taken there.  David can be reached at Sklow@Money.org.

I showed up at the ANA Club Representative breakfast to pick up a
club award for The E-Sylum but another NBS member was there to get it.
That person later turned it over to me and I will give it to Wayne
Homren, the editor of The E-Sylum, at a future date.

There were no NBS volunteers to assist me but two NI members and one
IBNS member showed up!  This is a new record of volunteers and they
were greatly appreciated.

I drove back on I-70 to I-35 and I-20 to NE Texas where I visited a
collector, then on to Atlanta to visit another collector and a sister
before driving back home to Virginia on I-95 and arriving twelve days
after leaving.  I thoroughly enjoyed the convention and am looking
forward to Charlotte in the spring and Milwaukee in the summer."
