There will be an informal shell show (open to anyone from anywhere), a bourse for dealers, field trips and presentations of talks on our favorite subject – shells. We’re open to suggestions as to other activities. Hopefully most of the countries in Asia will be represented at this initial meeting. We hope you’ll make plans to join all of us!
