You can find Rick's version at:


Here are some of my suggested changes (* = important):

*       Removed the second pro-rated schedule.  This will be added later, like

        Change "al members" to "all members" under E-mailed Newsletter.

        Change "list desired. The e-mail...." to "desired list with the E-mail
        address indicated above." under SAC on the Internet.

        Move the header "SAC on the Internet" down some.  The previous 
        will shrink that paragraph, so moving the header down will improve how 

        If not doing so already, please place two spaces after the periods.

        Is there anyway you can shrink the file size.  Your's is nearly 6 times
        larger than mine.  This might not be a problem when included in the
        newsletter (no extra overhead), but it is as a stand-alone.

        Your idea for the change to SAC-Board good, but it should read "is a
        mailing list".  I'm not sure it it should be "discussion" or
        "discussions", both are good. Or maybe "arguing".  ;-)

I'm going to go with mine as a stand-alone until we hammer out the minor
problems in your version.  Besides, at club meetings, I need some
pre-printed copies and the membership check-box is always pre-checked on
my system.

I hope you aren't holding up the newsletter because of this.
