The Regina Philatelic Club meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, September – May.
There are a few exceptions, however. Because we meet in a public school, we can’t have meetings when the school is closed for holidays.
Meetings are held in the staff room at Campus Regina Public School (formerly Cochrane High School), 1069 14th Avenue East in Regina, Saskatchewan.
The West Parking Lot is the best place to park. The side door to the school will be open. The staff room is the third door on the right.
General Meeting Format
The meeting room is open by 7:30PM on meeting nights. As members arrive, there is time to visit, look at any interesting items brought by the members, browse through the club library, view auction lots and grab a cup of tea.
The meeting officially starts at 8PM. The first meeting of the month is denoted as a ‘Business Meeting.’ There will be a brief section at the start of the meeting where we discuss club business. Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion. We try to keep the Business section to a minimum; typically 10 minutes or so.
After the formal business, there’s an opportunity to introduce new members, discuss any interesting news or share a story. Then it’s time for the scheduled event of the meeting, typically a presentation delivered by one of the members.
After the presentation, there’s usually a brief auction before we adjourn for the evening around 9:30PM.
Here are the details of the meetings for the 2018/19 year.
