I 'll have to look the title.. we must have stole it fom you at the time. I remember Keyboarding an article for Noel at the time. With my poor typing and Word Perfect the $*&#'s for Formating. Noel was cursing away proclaiming his dislike of computers... anyway, enough reminiscing.

Was that Jim . the then President of the CAC.. I was a member for awhile before going back to the BCMA.

I do have most of the newsletters. Let's get together and we can review.. I know there ar a few that I am missing. maybe we can trade/ get them copied.

Before I forget..have you bought fuel yet?

Morning Brent,
The president at the time was Dave Barrie. I remember Noel cursing the whole computer thing. When I look back, the evolution of club news letters has come a long way. From typing and Gestetner machines, to full blown, quality color. When Jackie and Roger got the first XT computer, we thought that was a huge jump into the future. The other day, I took an XT, a 286, a 386, and a 486, plus monitors and key boards to the recyclers. A mountain of obsolesence!
I am in the process of figuring out the whole fuel thing right now. There are a couple of options Not going to be cheap this year. NOTE!!! For all of you out there reading this, make sure you can run on pump gas! A high compression motor may be great for bragging rights, but, the reality of the proper fuel needed to make it run...and live, can be a real, expensive hassle.

oh yeah, where is the recycling facility for computers? I have some old stuff like that to dispose of too...

Soooooo... who hasn't got their hands on a 510 club of BC T-shirt? They're going fast and I can count the XL's and M's on one hand! Large is also available but limited quantites. As soon as these sell out, I'll make some more!

I'll snag one, but I won't be in BC until May.... so I guess I'll be good for round 2?
