  1. In exactly a month from now, the doors for the 42nd International Collectors' Convention at Gunzenhausen will open. The show is considered Germany's No. 1 and one of the best in Europe, if you're going for orders and decorations. I will be having a table as well, of course, and would look forward to meet some of you fellow Gentlemen again.

We are all hoping the best, but other shows have been already been canceled.
