Photo of the August raffle bottle is shown on the first page of this newsletter. Provided by Reggie Lynch, it's an amber 4�" BIM bottle embossed CHECKERS / MAKES PEOPLE NEW ALL OVER / CHECKERS MED, CO / WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Checker's Medicine was a product of the Casper's Whiskey Co, so you can rest assure the alcohol content was high.

David Tingen is also donating the Dr Pepper / King of Beverages book (pictured right) that he picked up on a recent tour of the Dr Pepper museum in Texas. Raffle will include 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.

Show & Tell / Bottles For Sale

Members are encouraged to bring bottles into meetings for show and tell. These bottles are good candidates for pictures and maybe stories in our newsletter. But it's also a lot of fun to share and is a big part of what our hobby is about. Members are also encouraged to bring in bottles for sale, since the opportunity to buy nice bottles is another reason people come to meetings.

Show Report

This section provides reports on any recent shows, auctions, or other events where bottles were sold.

Salisbury NC May 18 Estate Auction for Guy Poplin

Guy Poplin use to live in Georgia and retired to Salisbury NC. Before passing away last year, he amassed quite a collection of mineral water, sodas, whiskies, jugs and more. This was all auctioned on Sat May 18th in Salisbury by Carolina's Auction & Realty Co.

Auctioneer Rod Poole did an excellent job of having everything prepared before the auction. He had 4 custom shelves built, each 4 shelves high on each side. Shelf A had Cokes on one side and Pepsi's on the other, most from NC/SC/GA. Shelf B had whiskey bottles on both sides. Shelf C had mineral water bottles on the left side (many the Lithia style) and milk bottles on the right side. Shelf D had more soda bottles. An extra shelf had embossed glass gallon size whiskey bottles. Tables aligned the left and right sides building with many more items laid out in nice fashion.

And then there was the front stage. Many coke trays, most of them 1920s, were arranged for easy viewing on the left side of the stage. Whiskey jugs were lined up on the right side. And the table in the front middle had a glass covered case where many of the gems lay, including some very rare bottles from Salisbury.

As bidders arrived, they were able to easily examine everything ahead of time. Preview started at 10am. The auction started around 2pm and ended around 8pm. Everything went very smooth and lots were sold quickly. Prices went high for many items, but there were some great bargains, too.

Here are some pictures from the auction:

Shupp's Grove Festival July 18-20

David Jackson and Reggie made the trip to Adamstown PA for the first Shupp's Grove Bottle Festival. This replaced the old York show. It was an outdoor event with dealer setup starting Thu at 5pm and going on thru the night till the public came in Fri morning. I was able to make some good deals Thu night. Sorry no pictures, but the camera was on the fritz. Friday crowd was good, and I heard the Sat crowd was even better. One recommendation: don't expect to get any sleep if you camp out on the grounds due to traffic from adjacent interstate and the July heat. However, there's a lot of deal making at night and there was even a poker game that went on till 4am.
