BECC 50th Anniversary! If you're an eligible Boeing person and needed a good reason to join the BECC here it was: a gold piece was the grand prize every single general meeting in 2013 to celebrate the club's 50th anniversary! The BECC 50th anniversary banquet was held on Wednesday, October 16, 2013.

See the PNNA convention report.
Congratulations to BECC editor Terry Kamm (see officers page), and to all others who contribute to the newsletter!

BECC YN wins award! Also congratulations to YN Ben M. Ben's essay submission to the 2013 American Numismatic Association (ANA) Young Numismatist Literary Awards competition was selected to receive third-place honors in the Bill Fivaz Young Numismatist Literary Award category. The awards were presented on July 4, 2013, during the graduation banquet of the ANA Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs. Ben submitted an article which was also published in the February 2013 BECC Newsletter. The article in the newsletter was titled “Passions in Collecting” and described his passion about collecting butterfly coins. Ben changed the title of his essay to "The Inspired Collector" for the ANA, but the content is essentially the same as the one published in the newsletter. Way to go Ben!

It's Over! Hope you enjoyed the show!
