Bruce Marshall Plate – Hawkes Bay Competition
We have a competition in the Hawkes Bay. It is a Dalton plate donated by Faith Marshall wife of the late Bruce Marshall who won the plate at some stage.
The plate is now encased in a sturdy wooden frame with a suitable plaque. It is contested by the Hawkes Bay Philatelic Society and the Hastings Stamp Collectors Club on an annual basis each July.
A society four-page competition held once a year on any topic up to four pages.
The club runs a circuit exchange system for the benefit of members who may obtain booklets from the Circuit manager to fill in for circulation or may receive booklets for peurual and purchase of material. Books must be passed on within three days and the Circuit Manager must be notified of purchases and books within a week. Circuit Associate Membership is available at a cheaper rate.
sales tables are available each month except the Christmas meeting.
Free until the first of April following the member joining.
