The arrangements for the 2008 Dinghy Show, which is to be held at Alexandra Palace
on the 1st & 2nd March, are well underway.
Application and deposit for the SigneT stand has already been made and at Ferry Meadows
Chris Whiteside agreed that his dinghy ST522 (Joker) would be our featured boat.
This is no small undertaking because it commits the owner to a lot of work to prep
the boat to exhibition standards.
The class looks forward to welcoming AQSC members to the show. If you’ve never been
to Alexandra Palace put those dates in your diary now, its well worth a visit.

Since Spring 2005 the newsletters have been put on the website in 2 formats:
1 As HTML pages with a contents pane listing all the stories. A story is selected
for viewing by clicking on it in the contents pane.
2 As a PDF (Portable Document Format) file that opens in Adobe Acrobat and prints
identical to the paper copy of the newsletter you receive, except that pictures have
the bonus of being in colour. Size is 100 to 500 kb depending on the number of pictures.
It has been suggested that many members with Internet access would be willing to
download the newsletter instead of receiving a paper copy. An e-mail would be sent
saying a newsletter was available on line. Only around 18 members don’t have email.
It is much easier and cheaper for the Club to distribute newsletters in electronic
format. In future we intend to give members this option (hard copy will still be
available if requested).
Please have a look at the newsletters on the website and see if this is agreeable
to you. The online version should be available within a week of you receiving this
