The first mid-year gathering of CSA members, between the annual CSA Conventions, took place in 1966. Because of the seventeen months between the 1966 and 1967 CSA Conventions, Colonel Billy Matz sponsored a mid-year “CSA Bash” in Memphis in conjunction with MEMPHEX.

In January 1993 Col. Harry McDowell wrote to the Secretary, Colonel Rick Calhoun, and suggested that the CSA hold another mid-year rendezvous, between annual CSA Conventions. These gatherings have become quite popular, usually without exhibits, and often for CSA members and their guests only, to share camaraderie, and buy, sell or trade material.
