Aerophilately 2022


Show Dates moved to: November 4-6, 2022

Dear friends,

This letter is to notify you that AEROPHILATELY 2022 has had to change its dates to November 4-6, 2022. This has occurred due to a change in the Penn State University football schedule by the BIG 10 Athletic Conference. The game with Minnesota, originally scheduled for November, has been rescheduled for our show’s original dates. That means that all hotel rooms in the State College/Bellefonte will be filled with football fans, at a cost of $400-$700 per night.

We have signed a contract with the

University Park Inn and Suites
115 Premiere Dr.
State College, PA 16801
(814) 234-8393

This is a very nice clean and neat establishment 6 miles from the show venue, on the same road. The show price is $82 per night. This includes a free full hot buffet breakfast. Additionally, the hotel has given us the party room to the right of the registration desk in the evenings Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, where we will have informal get-togethers with complimentary beverages and snacks.

This is a relatively small hotel, with fewer than 100 rooms. Our block of rooms will quickly fill up. We hope that you will support the show by staying at this hotel. There will be enough attendees with cars so that there should be no problem for those without cars to get from the hotel to the show in the morning and back to the hotel in the evening. Additionally, the APS has a van that should be available to us.

Please make your reservation now. There are two ways to do this.

Call direct to the hotel. The phone number is 814-234-8393. Make sure that you ask for rooms in the AEROPHILATELY 2022 room block, at $82 plus the usual taxes. You will need a credit card to guarantee your reservation, however, you may cancel without penalty prior to 4 PM on your scheduled day of arrival.

On your computer, follow the link:

which you may simply click on, and be brought to the website of the room block immediately. Scroll down if necessary.

Again, it is necessary for you to book now. Once the hotel is full you will be on your own. If you have any questions contact Seve Reinhard at stephenreinhard42@gmail .com
