The Raleigh Bottle Club is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for area antique bottle collectors to get together, talk bottles, buy/sell/trade, organize club digs, and just have fun. The club also serves the community by answering bottle questions and sponsoring an annual Bottle Show and Sale. Next event: Saturday November 3, 2001 Festival at the NC State Fairgrounds. Current 2001/2002 officers:

Meetings are open to the public, so drop by and check us out. We hope you'll consider joining the club. Club members receive the monthly newsletter, run free ads, and participate in all the fun/benefits the club has to offer.
Plan for Nov 3 Festival was approved. Separate section below in newsletter for festival details.
Approved releasing next club directory in Oct 2001.
Membership renewals were sent to those who needed them with this newsletter. Dues are $10 individual, $15 family. Please insure your dues are renewed so you will appear in the Oct 2001 Club Directory.
Our club membership to the FOHBC was renewed.
I talked with Charna Sansbury, who provided the new URL for the The American Collectors of Infant Feeders (i.e. baby bottle club): http://acif.org/. Charna, the club's current president, has over 700 different nurser bottles in her collection. I didn't realize this category could be so diverse. Further info on baby bottles (including link to above club) can be found at: http://www.antiquebottles.com/nurser/
Looking for other people to sign-up for presentations at future meetings, so let us know what you would be willing to present. Presentations can be 5 to 60 minutes in length. David Tingen may do a presentation on photographing bottles for the Internet. May get Jimmie Wood to do ACL's and Charlie Perry to do White House Vinegar in the Fall.
September raffle bottles: Two BIM slug plate NC sodas: Lee Taylor of New Bern and Columbus Bottling of Chadbourn. Also two White House bottles donated by Charles Batton. Plus other bottles to be furnished at meeting.
Club members are encouraged to bring in bottles for the raffle we will have at each meeting. The raffle is fun for everyone and helps add money to the club treasury. For nicer bottles, the club treasury can reimburse the wholesale cost to the donator. Contact the treasurer before the raffle to make arrangements.
Members are also encouraged to bring in bottles for sale, since the opportunity to buy nice bottles is another reason people come to meetings.

Reggie, Ronald, Pem, and Whitt met Aug 18 at the Flea Market site and reviewed the dealer package, flyers, proposed budget, and layout. Everything was approved with these modifications:
Dealer packages will only be mailed to dealers from our last show and those who request one. Email announcement will be sent to the 450 people on Email distribution. Postcards will be mailed to everyone who does not have Email and was not a dealer at our last show.
Reggie has requested that our event be listed (for free) in the event calendars of these publications:
If I've forgotten any publications, please let me know.
Requested a listing in the NC State Fairgrounds Calendar of Events but they refused since we weren't renting one of their buildings. Also found we cannot put up a banner during the NC State Fair in October. Maybe someone can place some of our postcards at the fair - possibly at entrance to Scott Building.
Plan to run an ad in Raleigh News & Observer for the 3 days preceeding the show.
Was a small show but had fun meeting the dealers in the area and the hospitality could not be beat. Here's a few PICs from the show:
Show Chairman Jack Hewitt with his wife and mom.
J.M. DIXON / ROCKY MOUNT & / TARBORO, N.C. half pint strap sided flask was dug recently by Charles Batton and a friend. Very hard to find a NC whiskey flask with two small town names. The flask was a quickly purchased by Steve Brown of SC.

Ronald Hinsley shows off a sample size Loew's Stomach bitters that he picked up at the Knoxville show. Nice green bottle with ladies leg neck.
Member Reggie Lynch of Raleigh NC gave a presentation on soda bottles. Sorry for poor picture quality - we really need that new camera.
My deadline is approaching, so sorry that I don't have time give more details on the presentation. But it was enjoyed by the members in attendance, who especially liked the NC examples.
