APA Wayzgoose, June 9th-12th, Registration Open to All!


June 9th to the 12th

hosted by Stephanie Carpenter at the amazing

Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, Two Rivers, WI

INFO AND REGISTRATION: http://apawayzgoose.com

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!

Also, the special rates for accommodations will be expiring in early May (May 1 for Village Inn on the Lake and May 9 for Lighthouse Inn), so link to the webpage that has that info:

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Mark Barbour
2021 APA President

APA 2022 Aloha ‘Goose Website is “mostly” active…

I am still working on some of the details and awaiting further information from the organizers to get everything up and running.  But, the “Work In Progress” has a lot of useful information.

However, the online registration page and the downloadable registration form will not be available until all the information is complete.

But you can still book your hotel room and make your travel plans now, and the Aloha ‘Goose registration limit of 100 attendees will be given priority to those who have already completed their other reservations in advance.

So check out the the information on the Aloha ‘Goose Website

The Final Changes to the 2022 Membership…

To round out the 2022 Membership Roster, please note the following changes:

#941: Ted & Theresa Kratschmer
have resigned after welcoming a new baby to their family.

To fill out our membership at 150 members, let’s welcome our new member:

#996: Michael Moore
The Letterkraft Press
Independence, Kentucky

I first met Michael back in 2013, when I was liquidating Williams Stationery Co., in Camden, New York.  He was quick to snap up my 8×12 Chandler & Price New Series with pony fountain, a Hammond Glider G4 saw (I had two, only need one now!) and one of my 18″x18″ custom made Imposing Stone Galley Racks we had positioned by every press.

He has about 40 years experience in printing, about the same as me, and is a really nice guy. I’m happy to see him join our Merry Band of Letterpress Printers!!  Welcome Aboard Michael!!
