Now to our hobby - STAMPS.
1) You received quite a lot of covers from the FIFA 2006. This was
a mega-event in Germany and our PO did a lot for the collectors.
They issued 12 different cards and 1 envelope. For each of the 12
cities they had a postcard and a special cancellation. We can send
the mail for special cancellation to 3 special po`s -- Berlin, Bonn
and Weiden. For the FIFA cancellations we only could get them in
Weiden. They received tons of mail for cancelletion and I must say
they did a nice job.
2) Visit of the POPE in Bavaria. This is also a big event - also
for philelists. As you probably know he was born in small village
in the south of Bavaria and is the first German pope since 450 years.
Bavaria is very CATHOLIC (he is the pope for the catholic church)
so a lot of people are trying to see him. He was a cardinal in Munich
and very popular. He arrives on 9.9.in Munich and visits 4 different
cities in around Munich before he returns to VATICAN CITY in Rome
on 14.9.06. The PO also issues cards, letters and special cancellations.
You will receive another bunch of cards from me.
3) German - Austrian Philatelic meeting on 6.-8.10.06 in Bad Reichenhall.
Another top event for Philatelists. Our stamp club will rent a bus
to go there. You also get quite a number of cards, etc.
Enough for now. Please let me know if you need more details on the
3 events - perhaps you can use it in your web site.
