Steve Albanese Passing

A very long time friend of over 50 years passed away recently.  His name is Steve Albanese and he was a member of our club. I don't know if his dues were up to date or not. I met Steve way back in 1968 when I joined our local coin club. I am member #163 and he was member #33. He was a few years older than me. As friends do we may not see each other for a couple years then reconnect. He was big into coin collecting of which he sold me some coins from time to time before we both got hit hard with the silver strike bug. Steve loved finding the varieties especially on the $7.00 strikes. Different weights and die varieties. The last few years he struggled with a number of health issues.  I am happy he is at peace finally, though I will sure miss our phone conversations.
I found out this news yesterday (12 Oct. 21), and I already miss my friend.

Four Queens Silver Strike Peeling Issue

To our Silver Strikers,

It is from Shaun Webster concerning the strikes that the decals are lifting

*******************************************************************************************************

From Shaun Webster - Four Queens:

To Our Silver Strikers,

The June Tournament was a great Success and everyone seemed to have a great time.  It was so good to see everyone enjoy themselves.  As most of you know or have heard that the ink on some of the June 2021 coins is peeling off.  The Mint has been working to zero in on the cause and have narrowed it down to be the primer.  So for those of you that have June 2021 coins that the Ink is peeling we have a few options:

If you are coming to the Halloween release bring your coins and we will have the mint pick them and re-colorize them.  If not the Halloween release but you are coming to the January 2022 Tournament which will be on January 28th, 29th & 30th 2022 bring your coins if the ink is peeling.

NOT ALL OF THE COINS ARE AFFECTED SO ONLY THE JUNE 2021 COINS THAT HAVE THE INK PEELING WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Thank You,
Shaun Webster

Four Queens January 2021 Tournament

To our Silver Strike Family

Due to the increasing number of COVID cases in all states we are not going to have a January 2021 Silver Strike Tournament. Keeping your safety as a top priority comes first to us. The Silver Strike Tournament will hopefully go on in June as that is our intent. If cases go down or if a vaccine gets approved and released we will have a St. Patrick's Day coin release. We hope you understand that all of you are very important to us.

The Strike Point & Chip Message Boards Update

Friday June 5th - Strike Point Message Board up and running but crashed again a few hours later.

Saturday June 6th - Strike Point Message Board up and running once again for now.

UPDATE JUNE 5TH FROM: David Spragg (lives in the UK) BBS Message Board Admin Right now I don't know if the problem is fixed or not. I've got the BB's back online for testing only.

The server has been running since 10a.m. this morning my time so I spent 8 hours backing it up in its entirety in case I have to move to a replacement box.

Worst case anything posted between now and when it crashes for good will be lost.

I do have an automated incremental backup which runs every morning at 10 my time but this is not a complete backup (obviously, as a full one takes 8 hours). So theoretically the only data loss would be anything posted between the last incremental backup and crash time.

So right now I am just leaving it up to see what happens.

Server company has already given me a 'spare' server for 3 months so if I do have to move it should only take me a few days. If that does happen I'll put the redirect to my message that's been there the past few days back on again, but if it crashes while I'm asleep I can't do much until the a.m.
