November 2nd and 3rd 2012
Scottsdale Hilton Resort, Scottsdale Arizona



    I am pleased to announce more details regarding our upcoming convention which will be held November 2nd and 3rd at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The convention facilities include a main hall of about 2500 square feet and a meeting room of about 900 square feet. Both facilities are connected to the hotel lobby which contains a restaurant and bar area.

The main room will accommodate fifteen tables for dealers and displays. In addition, tables and seating will be available for members use and members are encouraged to bring material for trading and sale. The main room will be open from 9am to 6pm both days. A security room will be available Thursday afternoon thru Friday morning.

The meeting room is the private dining area for Flemings Steak house, which is an excellent restaurant located within the resort. The room will be available to us from 10am to 4pm daily. We expect to have three speakers each day and during the balance of the time, the room can be used for social activities.

We have arranged a special room rate at the Resort of $149 per night for members. Our block of rooms is limited so it is important that you make your reservations as soon as possible. The easiest way to make your reservation is to go to and follow the links. If you are computer challenged you can make the reservation by calling the resort direct at 480 948-7750. Be sure to mention our group code of USM. A number of members intend to make this a vacation trip and are staying in the area longer than the convention. I have made arrangements with the hotel to extend the special rates from October 29 to November 6.

A limited number of bourse tables are available at $475 each. If you are interested in a table, contact me immediately. Admission to the convention will be free to members, $10 to nonmembers and free to family members and kids under 15.

Initial response from members has been very positive. We expect to see collectors at the convention who rarely attend coin shows. Many of the members are looking forward to visiting with friends they have not seen in years.

The weather in Scottsdale is excellent this time of year, with lots of activities, shopping and restaurants in the immediate area. The hotel provides a free shuttle to Scottsdale Fashion Square and local restaurants. In my next letter I will include information and recommendations about a number of the superb local restaurants and activities.

This has been a time consuming project and I want to thank the members who have assisted. A special thanks to Mike Dunigan for his enthusiastic support of the convention and his help in organizing it. Also, to Jerry Fuller for his assistance in organizing advertising and press releases for the Convention. We are going to need a lot more assistance at the convention itself. Call if you want to help.
