14 to 17 October 2020 – Pittsburgh, USA

Virtual 52 Plus Joker Convention

Meet legendary collectors & designers, hobnob with premier card manufacturers, and talk playing cards with other enthusiasts … all weekend long!

This year, the Annual Convention will not take place in Pittsburgh, but the officers will proceed to deliver as much of the planned content as possible by way of online events on a meeting platform such as ‘Zoom’.

Club President Lee Asher has extended this invitation to the IPCS. The offer is that IPCS members would be invited to any events they would like to attend. There will be a few 52 plus Joker member-only events, such as the AGM and auctions, which would be difficult to extend in a fair way for all.

IPCS members are invited to visit the   Virtual On-Line Annual Convention, October 14th through 17th.  Read about it here…

Because this is a virtual event, they are holding everything over the ZOOM platform.
If you don’t already have this free software installed on your computer and/or phone, please make sure you do before October 14th. It only takes several minutes to install.
Download Zoom Client For Meetings from this link….
NOTE: Download the first option – Zoom Client For Meetings. Unless you want to download Zoom on your phone, in which case download the Zoom Mobile App.
You can see the schedule now published on the 52+J website.
This is the link for all four days. Once you have Zoom installed, simply click the link below. If they are in session, it will take you to a room where they are holding their convention. That’s it.

(cut and paste if not clickable)
“Right now, if you want to bid in the auction, that’s reserved for 52 Plus Joker members only. However, everyone is free to come watch. If you see something of interest, then you’ll have to join 52 to bid. Without going into an arduous explanation, our club cannot sell anything to a non-member based on a United States non-profit tax status. This is why members only here.”
All EPCS and IPCS members are welcome, but feel free to share this link with anyone who loves playing cards.
