(Please note the date change)

It is now about a year until the biggest aero event since 2014, when the second all Aero and Astro World Series of Philately event took place at APS Headquarters in Bellefonte, PA. (The first was in 2007.) Everything has been geared up. All of our volunteers are working hard to assure a wonderful show. (Note that our original date in October 2022 was preempted by a change in the Penn State football schedule.)

There will be a WSP exhibition, with the grand award winners, both multi-frame and single-frame, being invited to participate in the next Champion of Champions exhibition. The only condition for entering is that all entries must be aerophilatelic or astrophilatelic in nature, or have an aviation theme. All APS categories of exhibit are welcome to apply. A prospectus and entry application are available from Exhibit frames will be assigned in order of receipt.

Additionally, there will be dealers, many seminars, an awards banquet and other activities, and, of course, the wonderful library at APS Headquarters, where the show will be held.
