The 2015 meeting of the France & Colonies Philatelic Society will be held at OKPEX in Oklahoma City on Fri-Sat, June 19-20, 2015 at the Reed Conference Center, 5800 Will Rogers Road, Midwest City, OK 73110. The Reed Center is located off Interstate 40, just 5 miles east of downtown Oklahoma City. Dealer and Exhibitor setup will be on Thursday June 18. The Conference Center proved to be an ideal show location last year, with a perfect facility, free parking, and a convenient location.
This is a wonderful new facility that has a first floor room with 6000 sq. feet and 16 foot ceilings for the exhibits and the bourse. The registration, post office, and society booths will be in the large foyer/entryway. It is all carpeted, air conditioned, modern, clean, well-lighted, and has free parking.
The Sheraton Hotel adjoins The Reed Conference Center. It has set aside a block of rooms with either king or twin double beds at the OKPEX rate of $99.00 which includes a 50% discount on breakfast. For reservations, you must call the hotel directly (405-455-1800), ask for reservations, and book your room at the OKPEX special rate. There are also several other motels within 1-2 blocks of the Reed Center, all with reasonable rates.
We will have 115 competitive multi-frames and 10 competitive one-frame exhibits. Youth and single frame postcard exhibits can be shown in addition to these limits. The APS jury will be Mr. Kenneth R. Nilsestuen, Chief, Judge; Mr. Wayne Menuz, Judge; and Mr. James R. Pullin, Judge.
OKPEX has agreed to give first priority to exhibits submitted by France & Colonies members as long as application is made no later than April 15, 2015. Applications received after that date will still be accepted as long as space is available. The OKPEX 2015 prospectus is available using the link below.
