New chairman, site, hotels and county
Long-time SESCAL chairman Carl Shaff II stepped down at the end of SESCAL 2016 because of health issues. His replacement is John Weigle, who is also president of the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California, which sponsors SESCAL. All other committee members remain in place.
Weigle is a long-time collector and member of the Ventura County Philatelic Society, where he edits the monthly newsletter and chairs the annual Youth Stamp Fair. He collects many things, but his major interests are the postal history of Ventura County, California, where he was born, and post office seals of the world. SESCAL dealers have helped him find material for both collections. He also writes a monthly stamp column for the Ventura County Star.
As noted above, we are in a new location -- the Ontario Convention Center -- in a new county -- San Bernardino. We hope to attract many new people at the new location.
We expect to have the host hotels selected before the end of the year, and more information will be posted at that time.
The 2017 theme has not been selected yet. Keep watching the site, which will undergo major updates as more decisions are made.
