I'm trying to get a bit more organised with the magazine, few suggestions

branches nominate 'reporters' in advance of their regional race/cruise/event before they happen

technical report contributors put themselves down for an article a year

branches nominate a member to ensure event details arrive in good time for publication

if you want to volunteer to report on an event please let Anne and I know at the usual address magazine@hovercraft.org.uk

any other suggestions welcome

cheers Tony

Try paying people like the club used to do. You might get some results then.

If that was the case then some of us would be quite well off!!

What needs to happen is to encourage anyone who can string a few sentences together to HAVE A GO!! If you can tell a tale about an 'event' put it in writing - if it is rough around the edges then perhaps someone could volunteer to smooth it out before publication.

Tony, why couldn't we do a reciprocal deal with the HCA (http://www.hoverclubofamerica.org) - they can republish our articles if we can republish theirs?

Why don't we plagarise (nick stuff off the bulletin board)? OR just get people who write lots of stuff here, also enter it into the magazine. With a little tweaking some of the 'items' would make a reasonable article. Some of the threads have relevance to more than a few club members. Some of it is history. Some of it is funny (occasionally). Some of it is news.

Give it a thought - if you like writing stuff here - expand on it and send it to the magazine!
