Hello all, we have successfully moved forward and are happy to get started, the newsletter as we have learned is the backbone of what we do, that piece of paper being in the mailbox is so nice, so be looking for it.

As we regenerate interest, and relevance, it will be good to veiw the past as a great learning curve, and as we struggle to figure out what worked and what did not work, aim toward keeping personality conflicts more a source of entertainment then a corrosive dissolution, we will be inclusive not exclusive, even though we may not care for the company of some, because some folks might think the same of you!

I would like to thank jerry and donna for keeping the flame aflicker and understand what that entailed, thanks to jack and amy for a lot of hard work, and I sincerely hope that they dont drift to far away and will be available as consultants despite the bold new direction they are heading.

Contests, Competitions, and events are not something the guild is in a position to sponsor or finance, the guild can have a booth manned at events that can promote the guild independent of the event itself, and its encouraged, any volunteers?

Once again Thank you one and all for your continued intrest, we are primarily a pacific northwest orginization, we welcome folks from anywhere on this big round ball that hangs in space, but will concentrate on our little corner.
and remember carve or starve...
