The Canadian Aerophilatelic Society
The CAS provides a forum for the exchange of information among Canadians who
are interested in any aspect of world-wide aerophilately, and for collectors from
around the world who are interested in Canadian aerophilately. This is mainly
achieved through our newsletter, The Canadian Aerophilatelist, which is published
quarterly. If you would like a sample copy of the newsletter, please click here.

This years Day of Aerophilately will be held at the Vincent Greene Foundation, on Sunday November 4th, from 11.15am to 4.00pm. The Foundation is at 10 Summerhill Ave., which is close to Summerhill subway station on the Yonge St. line. - This is the same location as usual, but everyone should check the streetsigns, to see where parking is currently allowed on Sundays. This is the nineteenth annual Day of Aerophilately in Toronto. It features displays, questions and answers, trading, lunch at a nearby restaurant, and lots of excellent conversation. - The regulars look forward to this meeting each year, and very much hope that more people will join them.

ROYAL 2013 ROYALE - Winnipeg - June 21st to 23rd 2013.
CAS SYMPOSIUM at ROYAL 2013
An Aerophilatelic Symposium will be held as part of ROYAL 2013.
We are hoping to attract 80 frames of exhibits to the show. The aerophilatelic exhibitors will have two choices: traditional philatelic exhibiting, in which
exhibits are judged by RPSC qualified judges; and non-competitive exhibits, in which people can show what they want, how they want.
The aerophilatelic events will include a tour of the Western Canada Aviation Museum on Friday afternoon, with special access to their philatelic collection: a
forum to discuss the non-competitive exhibits on Saturday morning; speakers on Saturday afternoon; and the Annual General Meeting of the CAS on Sunday afternoon.
Our Symposium plans are being co-ordinated by David Whiteley.
