The revisions to the APA Constitution & By-Laws passed by a vote of 82 yeas and 17 nays with 50 abstaining. Thanks to everyone who made their voice heard both through the voting and the general discussions. We have a truly great hobby organization that is now approaching old age at 64 but we remain strong, creative and vibrant! The board and officers remain honored to serve the APA members and continue to lead us forward. October is now approaching so back to your cases and presses and fill up those bundles with your best printing.
On behalf of the Board,
APA 2022 President
A new, more robust photo gallery plug-in has been added to the website to replace the page based gallery that was used for the 2016 St. Louis Wayzgoose photos. The existing photos have been added to the new gallery system.
If anyone has photos from any past APA Wayzgoose events they would like posted to this new gallery system, please contact the website design manager for submission information by CLICKING HERE.
The APA Wayzgoose Photo Galleries can be accessed by CLICKING HERE or using the link found in the left sidebar of any page.

Time travels faster as events get closer, so please take the time to make your reservations to the 2022 Aloha ‘Goose today, if you have not already done so… There is a limit of 100 attendees, and as of today, May 3rd, we are over 2/3rds of the way to that attendance limit.
So, don’t miss out waiting to the last minute. If you are planning to attend, make your reservations on the Aloha ‘Goose Reservations & Payment Page today. We are only taking online reservations, paid by credit card, this year.
The deadline for making your reduced rate reservations at the host hotel: Lighthouse Inn in Two Rivers is May 9th, so you need to make your reservations soon to get this group rate. Check out the Accommodations Page on the Aloha ‘Goose Website. You must call the Lighthouse Inn directly to get this group rate, it is not available through online reservations.
This will be a great weekend of presentations, workshops, letterpress printing, tours and much needed fellowship among the APA members, friends, and fellow letterpress nuts! You don’t want to miss what is sure to be a stellar Wayzgoose.
The special Aloha theme is in honor of our recently departed members, Dave Peat and Gregory Walters, both of whom were taller-than-life inspirational members of the APA. They both lived and breathed this hobby and shared a tireless passion for all things letterpress. In their honor we are having an Aloha ‘Goose Banquet on Saturday with some special presentations. Dave and Greg would always show up at every Wayzgoose in matching Hawaiian shirts. So everyone is encouraged to wear your favorite Hawaiian shirt to the banquet…
Attendance is open to everyone, whether you are an APA member or not. But the registration is limited to 100 people. So don’t delay and register now!
