The First Quarter issue went to the Printers on May 17, to the Mailing House on May 24, and to the Denver Post Office on May 27.

I have not yet received my copy in Golden (20 miles west of Denver PO).

Has anyone received their copy?

This issue is huge, with several nice articles submitted by Club members, plus a page of those crazy Handstands photos. Also, a major milestone was reached . . .

Speaking of course only for myself, I'd be willing to pay a slightly higher yearly membership rate in exchange for A to Z being delivered via a "higher class" of mail. It's a first rate magazine produced by an incredible volunteer effort and the recent delivery problems are kind of a shame. It's been 6 months or so since I received the 3rd quarter, 2009 A to Z and nothing since then.

Still no A to Z. I agree with Mark. Raise membership fees and use higher class postage.

The USPS form (filed by our mailing house) shows a June 4 delivery to the P.O.

I rec'd my copy in Golden on July 3 - a month after the USPS received them.

We are in contact with the USPS, and will have a high-level meeting on Wed July 7 to discuss. They say it should only take a week.

Thank you for the good suggestions regarding converting to a higher level of postal delivery. I will discuss during our meeting this week!

A few years ago, we tried mightly to get "2nd class" periodical mail rate, but it was too time-consuming so we abandoned that effort, after spending many hours. It was a paperwork thing, not money. Maybe there are other options for our bulk mailing.

If you do not have issue #87, please let me know and I'll send you a replacement. You should have #88 soon too.
