Southern Ontario, western New York, eastern Michigan and northern Ohio

The Golden Horseshoe boundaries stretch from Oshawa in the east to Windsor in the west and as far north as is reasonably sane to drive. More than two hundred and twentry-five BNAPSers live in the area, and everyone is welcome. Any BNAPSers visiting the Golden Horseshoe region, especially those from adjacent Great Lakes states, should be sure to drop in. Encourage friends to attend. There’s lots of philately in the Golden Horseshoe. See you there!

Upcoming Events

22 May 2021
Details updated: 31 Mar 2021

Time : 2PM EDT

The Golden Horseshoe Regional Group will hold a Virtual Zoom meeting on Saturday 22 May at 1400 EDT. The meeting requires an invitation link which will be provided via email from the Golden Horseshoe Group.

There will be some announcements, and you will be able to add any of your own, just by speaking up at the appropriate time.

Topic: The Half Cent from the Pence Issue.
Presenter: Dr. Jim Watt

If there is enough time, there will be an opportunity for "show and tell". If you have something you'd like to share, make a digital copy of your item and have it open on your computer desktop before the meeting begins. When it is your turn to show your item, just click on the button at the bottom of the Zoom screen that says, "Share Screen", and then select your item - your item will appear and you can speak about it.

We hope to "see" as many of you as possible, and we hope you'll give us your feedback about the meeting afterwards.

A device with camera and speakers is best such as a computer, laptop, tablet or even smartphone can be used with the meeting, but a camera is not necessary to view or participate in the meeting.

*During the pandemic with group meeting not permitted, meetings are held virtually using Zoom.*
The GHRG holds meetings every two months except during the summer. Meetings are typically scheduled in January, March, May, September, and November. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings will be held at the Brewers Blackbird Kitchen & Brewery in Ancaster.


From the north:
Your exit to Hwy. 403 is on the right immediately after Brant Street.

From the east:
Your exit is immediately after Plains Road/Fairview Drive. Be sure to stay hard right and not get on the Hwy. 407 toll road.

Follow Hwy. 403 westbound toward Hamilton and Brantford around the bends near the Cathedral and then up the hill to the Lincoln Alexander Parkway/Rousseaux St. exit. Stay hard right and follow Rousseaux St. to Wilson St., turn left and drive into the village. The restaurant is on the right just after the Glendale Motors lot. Lots of parking behind the restaurant.

From the west (London, Woodstock):
Take Hwy. 401 to Hwy. 403 eastbound to the Wilson St./Hwy. 2 exit (the previous exit is Copetown/Regional Rd. 52). At the end of the ramp, turn left and follow Wilson St. through the traffic circle at the fire station and past the shopping centres approximately 2 km into the village area. Look for Tim Horton’s on the right - the restaurant is across the street. Lots of parking behind the restaurant.


Volunteers are needed to assist with group meetings and publicity. Anyone who would like to help should email Peter McCarthy, Secretary, Golden Horseshoe Regional Group.

Rides and car-pooling

We are looking for anyone able to help with car-pooling from the Toronto area. For more information or to offer your help, please email Peter McCarthy at


To continue making this an interesting group we need the participation of the membership in the form of speakers. There’s such a wide range of subjects out there that there should be no trouble in having people volunteer. What we are looking for is a speaker and a back-up for each meeting. The back-up of one meeting would be the speaker for the following meeting. There is a time limit of forty to forty-five minutes including a question and answer period. If you are interested, contact Peter McCarthy by email at
