FOHBC Bottles and Extras in the mailbox Monday!

With record speed and great teamwork from the Bottles and Extras Editorial Team,(Martin Van Zant, Bill Baab, Alan DeMaison, Randy Selenak, Dave Maryo, Gene Bradberry & Ferdinand Meyer V) I am pleased to announce that we were able to assemble a great September | October 2012 issue that is being finished and bound at the printer this weekend. This was a challenge based on the Reno Expo date and an impending publishing deadline. We did not want the Reno Expo articles in the November | December issue. Here are a few teaser opening spreads to get you fired up!

The FOHBC membership is up dramatically of late with close to 100 new members signed up at Reno and since. PLEASE become a member of the FOHBC. We are stronger as a group.
