Dear Readers,
Thank you for your appreciation of my first issue. I hope again the Reader sees a high level of layout and content matching and perhaps building upon the superlative achievement of my predecessor, Bill Reece, who, as I see now, put in a yeoman‘s service for three years, as well as revamping the format. Now that I have mastered the software to an extent necessary to achieve the rudiments of publication, I hope to discover the artistic potential (?) of Publisher, and create a Monthly Masterpiece!
Well, seriously, I am really looking to beef up the photo- and reader interest-content. But that‘s going to require more pages, especially hopefully in color, more cost, and more postage. That means more advertising. To that end, I have some ideas, but that‘s got to be cleared with the Board. In the meantime, I am finding that, even with the fairly prompt and active support of the contributors, the thing soaks up hours – enjoyable hours – of time, even with the software now fairly in hand. But, once again, I apologize for the lateness—next time hopefully better.
I would like to make special thanks this and each month for those who take the time and trouble to contribute their articles, column, write up their experiences or remember to take photos at events, or in so many ways help ensure a quality Driveline!
