The Circuit Book Scheme is run by volunteers of the Philatelic Council of South Australia and is a vehicle for club members to either purchase or sell stamps, Covers, Postcards and other Philatelic material drawing upon the wider collecting network of clubs other than our own.
Buying is easy,
1 :- Become a financial member of the club.
2:- Attend one of the regular meetings and peruse the books on hand.
3:- To make a purchase obtain a purchase sheet from the Circuit Book officer and enter,
(a) Book Number
(b) Page Number
(c) Total value of stamps removed from the sheet
(d) Sign the places where you have removed an item
4:- At the end of the meeting or before you leave hand in the completed sheet with the total of your purchases to the Circuit Book officer.
Between meetings the books are available on a "rolling list" basis for perusal between meetings in the leisure of their own home. (The person at the head of the list goes to the bottom for the next batch of books the club obtains. The only exception to this is when a member is genuinely unable to attend the meeting due to ill health in which instance that person will head the current list.)
All Payments can be in cash or via EFT from your banking app.
