Please return with us to the central Massachusetts site that hosted over 100 ALPCA members at our record-breaking meet last fall. This year we will again have full use of the 7,800 sq. ft ballroom (the largest space we've ever had). With over a hundred tables, we anticipate more plates, more friends, and more camaraderie! Trading promises to be active until well into the afternoon. So start planning your display now and enter it in our longstanding competition for which awards will be presented in the following categories: Passenger, Non-Passenger, Small Display (ten plates or fewer), Junior Display (entrants must be under 21 years of age), and Best of Show. Our donation auctions are always lively and offer something for everyone. Member registration fees are $7 with no table and $15 with one table; additional tables are $20 each. Please watch this page for additional updates as the date draws closer. We plan to have a dinner event Saturday evening at a local restaurant for those spending the night in Leominster and locals that would like to join us. Lodging is available at the DoubleTree and we've managed to keep the negotiated rate of $109 (plus tax). Be sure to mention you are attending the ALPCA Colonial Region meet to ensure this room rate. Amenities at the DoubleTree include an indoor pool, restaurant, and bar. Directions: Several major highways lead to Massachusetts Route 2. From route 2 westbound take exit 31 B; eastbound motorists use exit 31. From either ramp after merging onto route 12 north turn right onto Erdman Way 1/8 mile ahead. The DoubleTree is  mile ahead on the right. Questions? Contact Alan Young at or (781) 258-0363. Plan now to visit New England and experience Massachusetts hospitality at its best.

The Colonial Region invites you to join us in New Britain, just southwest of Hartford, for what promises to be another blockbuster event. The VFW post has a large hall with 65 tables, and the adjacent parking area allows level, easy access directly into the hall. Plan now to attend and enjoy a day of lively trading well into the afternoon, with a donation auction that features quality material from near and far. Breakfast and lunch will be available on site, along with complimentary coffee and donuts. Member registration fees are $7 with no table and $15 with one table; additional tables are $20 each. Our winter 2016 meet attracted 90 members from 13 states, and we expect to have a higher turnout in New Britain because the hall is larger and this is a new venue for us. Don't miss it! Please watch this space for additional information or contact host Bob Senatro at (860) 874-3985 or See you in Connecticut!
