| March/April 1999

The big news around here right now is the size of the 1999 Directory! It looks as though this one will be well over three hundred pages, as we have had a great response again this year. All told, we should have about 1,100 shows listed when we've sent the book to printer.

We sent our advertising 'packages' out to show contacts for seasonal advertising early in January. These packets help those responsible for placing a club's ads to know what is needed when, cost, etc. If you are someone who needs one of these packages and you haven't received it, please feel free to call, write (or even e-mail!) our advertising department.

We got a nice letter recently, from a subscriber who was grateful for the network of contacts he had developed in the gas engine world. He is the owner of an unusual engine, and saw a picture of a similar one in the magazine. This led him to the show organizers, who came through with the address of the individual owner. The owner gave him the name of another man in a distant state (Texas), who had given him a lot of help.

The Texan went out of his way to help, sending drawings and even actual parts to be copied. The only reason we haven't used names here, is because this is a story that we hear over and over, about the kind and helpful nature of collectors, and their willingness in so many cases to help strangers, often distant ones.

What a great bunch of people!
