Best Attended Club Meeting Since COVID

On April 19, 2022, the Madison County Coin Club held its regular monthly meeting in Huntsville, Alabama. The MCCC is a smaller club than I am used to in Pennsylvania. I am used to meetings with 75-100 present at Red Rose of Lancaster, PA. Harrisburg and the Daniel Boone CC of Reading are closer in size to the Madison County Club. 
 

The club returned to live meetings a little under a year ago, but getting back to pre-COVID attendance has been a struggle (or so I am told - I wasn’t there pre-COVID). But tonight was a pleasant surprise. There were over two dozen members in attendance, plus five new guests. Our Treasurer was not able to attend, so taking membership dues was not going to happen.
 

We are doing well with new members. I need to make a batch of new name badges. 
 

Our program consisted of announcements, show and tell, and a Power Point presentation from one of our youngest YN members on the U.S. Mint’s new issues for 2022.

The renewed strength of attendance will make the return of auctions a possibility.

Do you guys have door prizes or raffles? 

Yes we do. At least two door prizes per meeting, and occasionally as high as five. I’ve won twice, and contributed two also.

I think in the next year or so I’m making my way North to the huntsvillle/Madison area. If I do I will sure become a member. There are no local clubs that I am aware of near me in Tuscaloosa. Gadsden and the one you are in are the only active ones I am aware of around here.

Good to hear that attendence is up - coin clubs are very very few and not something we really have in the UK which is a shame. Online groups seem much more common, as is a focus on more modern issues, meaning my interests in old world issues is a bit odd xD

When I next go to the UK, I’ll be timing my itinerary to be in coin clubs’ home towns on meeting nights.

A dealer from the area. I am blanking on his name. But he calls himself central Alabama coin club or something. Nice guy.
