is

> documents in a fairly simple, inexpensive manner, using the free Acrobat
> File Reader

> rough count of folks in the SCA who might be willing to cut postal and
> production costs for our newsletters by accepting them via electronic
> distribution and printing them themselves, or keeping them in electronic
> form.  Right now I don't know how long the BoD is going to wait for
comment,
> so I'll presume the window is short, and ask you to fill out this survey
by
