Newsletter November 2000

This is my last newsletter as editor. I have enjoyed preparing and assembling the issues and am sad to be stopping but no longer have the time or close enough involvement in the club to produce the best-informed result.

This means that the AGM on the 9th December is your chance to stick your hand up and be the club's next editor. Before you jump in with both feet I'll outline what the job entails. It Is not difficult, the newsletter's function is to publicise events that are coming up, give results and comments on events that have already taken place and also to give readers an Insight into trips, courses & holidays that individual members think would be of general interest. At the moment about half the information is sent to me by email, some is faxed and a small amount are handwritten reports. Anyone with access to PC or Mac will be able to produce the final pages ready to be photocopied without too much effort. Programmes such as Quark Express make it easy to flow one page of text into the next, if you want to insert a small article between two large ones or place a bit of clip art. There Is no need to continue the current format, you could simply have A4 sheets stapled together if you prefer, however I am still quite happy to photocopy, collate and staple the newsletters before dropping them off with Pete Mansell who posts them out If anyone wants to phone me for more Info please do.

I'll still be out in my boat as and when.

See you around - Mike Allen.

P.S. Congratulations to Mark Burch and Lorna on their engagement.
