It will be an "open-ended" event in Oakland, no RSVP required, that will be open from June 7th until June [?]th where [?] is probably three or so days later. I will announce times and location closer to the end of May. Jimmy, the president of the Elsewhere Philatelic Society, also has an additional message. [Jimmy] heyyyyyyy ... so this thing is going to be a thing ... and the first day, june 7th, theres a silkscreening station available for you to get a silkscreen with a silkscreen ... its the overly complex eps logo with the pigeon on it as seen in the upper-left corner of the stampsfromelsewhere.com website ... its about 13 1/2 inches wide by 14 inches high ... the ink will be a solid gold, so bring dark/black fabric ... it looks good, you could do like a black t-shirt ... wait until the third of may if youre going to buy something, there might be some corrections/additions sent out but i think i got everything ... oh, its better if you come early in the proceedings for this ... [Kaidan] Thank you, Jimmy. Silkscreening will only take place on the first day, Saturday June 7th. Side Hatches. The Wanderers Union is a long-distance wandering club.

================================================ Elsewhere Philatelic Society Mailing List #1.1.1 ================================================ Hello this is Kaidan Tansu Jr. There is an Elsewhere Philatelic Society event happening in Oakland beginning this Saturday. It is at the Naming Gallery (naminggallery.com), which is located at 335 15th Street. The gallery will be showing the Elsewhere Philatelic Society's various creations during these times: Saturday June 7th - 11am to 11pm Sunday June 8th - 11am to 4pm Wednesday June 11th - 11am to 6pm Closing reception: Wed June 11th 6:03pm-8:30pm at least, perhaps longer. Please no earlybirds. As mentioned before, on Saturday there will be gold EPS logo silkscreening starting at noon and on the hour. Bring a shirt or paper or something else flat and big enough to accommodate the circular seal (13 1/2" x 14"). Black works well. Bring your shiny thing of great import. If you do not know what that is, you probably do not have one. The nook will tell you more, once it is up (which should be rather soon). Bring a quarter ($0.25). There is a quarter disposal receptacle on display at the gallery. If you have a cellular telephone, make sure that it is fully charged. If you have headphones, that would also be beneficial. There is a new mailing list that members can join by sending the text "subscribe" to [see contact page] This list is for members to be able to confer away from prying eyes, amongst themselves. It will entirely consist of EPS member conversation. When you join, please introduce yourself to the list at large. Speaking of prying eyes, there is information below on how best to keep tabs on the Elsewhere Numismatic Society. It is a thing all EPS members do. ================================================== stampsfromelsewhere.com facebook.com/pages/Elsewhere-Philatelic-Society/140685722673015 twitter.com/philatelicism twitter.com/jmmy2020 elsewherenumismatic.com/apply [Apply; spy] twitter.com/coinchalance [Eye on the sly] ==================================================

================================================ Elsewhere Philatelic Society Mailing List #1.1.2 ================================================ Hello this is Kaidan Tansu Jr. The Naming Gallery event was successful. There are photos of the event available at the nook. For those of you who were unable to make it to the event, the event also featured a pointer to the starting point of the continuation of the EPS member mail carrier training odyssey. This selection is available to anyone, but it suggested that non-members should start by becoming EPS members first to get a feel for the ebbs and flows of these sorts of non-standard situations. If this is the case, please visit the website stampsfromelsewhere.com for more information. To find the starting point to continue mail carrier training, please visit The Escapist at 3090 Claremont Avenue in Berkeley and look for the EPS offering. It is yellow, in a clear plastic bag. It is [correction] two dollars.

================================================ Elsewhere Philatelic Society Mailing List #1.1.3 ================================================ Hello this is Kaidan Tansu Jr. You may be familiar with our recent spate of network squirrel attacks which pulled various EPS nodules out of the electric stream for awhile. Unfortunately some bits of the EPS database are now corrupt; if you have a passport, please email the passport number which is located on the inside front cover. Thank you. The Berkeley mail carrier training sessions continue (bring $2.00 to the Escapist at 3090 Claremont in Berkeley; look for long yellow pamphlet in plastic bag). If you have already completed the training session please avoid posting photos/describing locations or documents etc so (A) we can have an equal baseline for all potential mail carrier trainees and (B) to keep nosy agents of other, nefarious societies from sabotaging critical infrastructure. The latter is a very real concern at this juncture. Thank you.
2014 July. The Claremont Hotel is a large hotel complex in Berkeley. It is perched.
2014 July 22. We received a package which contained many items of interest.
A miniature application with miniature stamp.
A fabric with a junior bank robbery in progress.
A thing where something's going on. An exchange of ideas about food.
Most critically: SQUIRREL WITH A 40. I want this on a t-shirt.
A suitable return was fashioned.
2014 July 26. A troubling update from Hawaii, the "Aloha" State.
The squirrel had a 40, this pineapple should have a tropical drink. I also want those sunglasses. Tight.
Harrowing news. Thank you for the intel.
============ Beach Thing. ============ There is a low-key relaxing beach meet-up scheduled for Saturday August 16th 2014. The location is Bean Hollow State Beach: Pebble Beach. It is South of Half Moon Bay and Pescadero along the Pacific Coast. There is no swimming at this location. The time will be 11am - 4pmish. If you are interested in going, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: [Beach.]. There is no RSVP system in place, we would just like a rough headcount. This is a casual social event. *Please wear sturdy shoes with a gripping tread*. Suggested items to bring: - Blanket - Picnic lunch (optional: something to share) - Beverages - Beach Accoutrements (toys/frisbees) - Dogs (leash required) Confusingly, there are two exits labelled Bean Hollow State Beach. This is the Northern one, Pebble Beach, which is indicated on the sign just before the exit. The second one is about a mile South. Here is the view coming up on the correct exit (for Pebble Beach). Additionally, the speed limit on Highway 1 in that area is 55mph. It helps to be prepared, the exit is sharp and sudden. Once you park your car, there is a trail to the left (South), a walkable drop-off straight ahead (West) that leads to a large flat concentration of slab rock peppered with tafoni, and stairs leading down to Pebble Beach to the right (North). This is where we will station. If we are lucky the slab rock will also be peppered with various water-bound creatures like crabs, starfish, sea anemone, etc. It depends on the tides and other factors. The San Gregorio General Store is an interesting mercantile that is 0.8 miles East of Highway 1 on CA-84 (La Honda Road). The turn-off is approximately 6.3 miles North of Pebble Beach. Prices will be a little bit higher there. Should there be a change of plans, the new location will be announced on a sign placed in the center of the circular turnaround in the parking lot. Please use the member mailing list to organize ride shares and/or convoys.
