Pictured is a complete collection of souvenir plates issued by the Silver State region, NILPS, and the Silver State region over the years. The first souvenir plate to be issued was in 1987 (ALPCA Silver State region 1987). All of the plates issued from 1987 through 1994 were issued as Silver State regional meet plates when the club was affiliated with ALPCA. From 1995 through 2007, all of the plates were issued by the new NILPS Organization. Please note that two plates were issued for 1992 and 1996 and that the plate issued for1998 was a motorcycle plate!
A complete set of ALPCA Silver State regional meet and NILPS souvenir meet plates would make a nice display on your wall.

It is an idea brought forward that we think worth pursuing. The Silver State region would like to have on our website, a chronological listing and photograph of each Nevada plate ever issued. This would be valuable from both a historical and a collectors perspective and make a great addition to our website.Click here for more information on contributing and view the plates currently archived.
IMPORTANT! ALPCA Meets and most other meets listed are not open to the general public. Please contact the organizer of each meet listed for their policy on admittance of non-members.Visit our Western Meets Page
