About Us

Boambee East Philatelic Society Inc. (BEPS) is a vibrant new club on the NSW North Coast and visitors are most welcome. A newsletter will keep all country members in touch.

The first meeting was held in August 2009 and was well attended, with many driving long distances to meet with others and discuss their hobby.

There will be displays and activities on the night and anyone interested in joining this new club is invited to attend.

During 2016 the club is going to build members knowledge.
In February, members will face the luck of the draw; previously uncollected countries will be assigned. This is a major project and is designed to finish six months later. At this time all members are to present an eight page display of their endeavours.
There will be two auctions during the year- July and December.
We will learn how to get ready for an auction, more about watermarks, and how to fill in the winter night doing all those pesky little things.
