stands for Associated Matchcover Clubs of California, and, just
as the name implies, its all of the California clubs together...and
thats the biggest association in the
hobby, simply because California has always been able to correctly
boast the largest number of regional clubs of any state. Over
the years, the specific clubs have occasionally changed as, for
example, the Golden Orange and Northern California clubs disappeared
and our own Sierra-Diablo came upon the scene, but AMCAL has
always represented the California contingent of the hobbythose
wacky and wonderful people from out West.
And, AMCAL puts
on the annual AMCAL Convention...the biggest and best convention
west of the Mississippi. Next year's convention will be our 55th.
