As reported by bourse chairman Greg Smith, "The BECC Coin Show was well attended with 73 dealers and 80 dealer assistants operating 175 tables of everything from ancients to tokens. The general admissions topped 1,000. We also had 31 BECC members that did the set up, took care of general admission and walked the floor to aid anyone as necessary. Overall the show was a success, and feedback was generally very positive. The exhibits were light with only six entrants in four categories (see 2011 exhibit awards). The show is a nationally recognized show with dealers and buyers coming from across the nation and down the west coast."

Scholarships! The BECC provided scholarships for four current BECC members to attend the seminar "Introduction to Counterfeit Detection of United States Coins," held January 22-23, 2011 in Tukwila, WA. The BECC paid $99 of the tuition cost of $198 per person. The members who took advantage of this opportunity will report on their experiences at an upcoming club meeting.
