| April/May 1993

We are still very enthusiastic about our 1993 Show Directory, which is a record 176 pages this year. We got a wonderful response to our request for show photos to use in the Directory, but unfortunately, we couldn't use nearly as many as we would have liked. Thus, we thought you'd enjoy seeing a sampling of colorful 'show life' you'll find on pages 68 and 69. Again, many thanks to all of you who provided the information for our directory, and to all those who advertise or purchase copies.

You'll see a note in Reflections this month about our Tour of England. Response for the tour has been very good, with over 50 people ready to go! Don't forget to make your reservations soon if you intend to join them, as there is a limit to the tour size. Dates are June 19-July 3, and brochures are available from our office, just write or call and ask for one.

By the time you read this our latest 5-year Index to GEM by Donald Siefker should be at the printer it covers 1988-1992. This is our last planned index to be published in booklet form we plan to add a yearly index to GEM in the future, probably in each year's February or March issue.

Auction activity, a harbinger of Spring, is heating up as the weather grows warmer. We hope you find rare bargains at these sales from whence come the future stories!
