Dinghy Show 2008

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.

Publishing Newsletters

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 newsletter.
