    The Next Issue of "UP FRONT" !!!

    Our first "Up Front" newsletter (Issue 130) is taking a little longer than planned. Our initial intention was to have it out by Thanksgiving, including the SDAC-22 announcement to members. Stuff happens.

    Why is it late? Plain and simple:

    -It is our first one, steep learning curve
    -Arranging everything with a new print shop
    -Waiting on a couple key articles
    -etc.

    It is in the works, however delayed. Sorry. I will take the blame here as I have put things like preparing the calendar in front of this. My current goal is to have it in the mail in the next two weeks, for sure before Christmas.

    Any members out there who want to help? Articles! You want to see more newsletters? Even monthly ones? Feed us good articles, and it will happen! Less articles? Less newsletters its a simple equation really.

    Thanks. Any questions?

    Thanks guys! Yeah, quite a bit of work, but I think it came together well. As of 20 minutes ago, it is complete and we plan to get it to the printer tomorrow. With the holidays, it will be printed and mailed out by the end of the month.

    Got mine in the mail today. Excellent job guys!!

    I've only glanced through it but it looks great. Can't wait till I get a chance to read it all.

    And the best part, for me anyway, I didn't have to do it!

    Again, looks really good, lots to read, I like the new layout too! Bang up job!

    If this could be done to save postage for the club I would be in to that! I imagine that there is a min. amount required to have them printed so it may not be a savings.


    Thoughts??

    It was a great read. Joy is reading it as we speak. We both love the new layout.

    Good suggestions, and something like this may come with time. Our first priority online is to fix the SDAC members e-mail list which could also be a potential distribution point. As we get into updating the www.sdac.org site, there may be some options there as well. Unfortunately a large portion of members are not online so for now, we will continue to produce Up Front and mail it out. Stay tuned.

    There are usually very few errors in Up Front from what I notice. Without paying someone to be an editor I don't see catching everything.

    A tip about error checking. I found that I "had" to read a paper copy to catch my errors. Reading it on the screen just didn't do ir.

    Barry, don't try and fix JT's grammar now, it's just part of the mystique. You know you're reading it in depth if you catch them as opposed to skimming...

    Re: The Next Issue of "UP FRONT" !!!

    Good idea Barry. I actually didnt get a chance to see it completely on paper until I got the extra copies sent from the press. Might have to print a copy out before the final OK next time.

    LOL Jon, did you notice spelling in much bette rin Up Front? Gotta say MS Publisher has soem advantages over Quark 5 that the Chicagoland chapter newsletter is done in!
