    I’m terribly saddened by the announced “Big changes” to Die Flüsternde Bombe, the GGC chapter’s newsletter. Having it no longer in paper format is a disappointment and further provides evidence that there is no lasting tradition. The anticipation of the Roundel and Die Flüsternde Bombe arriving in the mail is now reduced to only one. These two printed mags were something to hold in your hand; not another “online” (on my iPad, in my email, on a web site, etc.) intangible ever electronically produced mag.

    You can request a hard copy.
    Hard copies need to go to those without email addresses and who do not opt out.

    National Capital Chapter is still printing hard copies.
    I think ad revenue will go down and printing costs will go up for chapters.
    Smaller chapters I can see the benefit. But not larger chapters.
    Just my opinion.

    I believe the reference to hard copies - does not mean a beautifully printed full color glossy version - like the one we get now. More like printed on a copier and send. I can do that myself on my home printer. :(

    That would be a shame. There are several chapters that produce very, very nice magazines.
    I always thought it should be up to the member to opt out of paper.
    We have opt out requests for Roundel all the time.

    Hey Sven, I suggest you join the Sandlapper Chapter. By joining up with us you'll get The Roadster, our fine publication, sent directly to your doorstep on fine paper, with articles written by a fine individual.

    Just sayin'...

    Meh, you don't have to attend our events. Although they are ridiculously awesome!

    Besides, how many members are in our chapter that don't go to our meetings anyways? At least he'll have an excuse not to attend.
