Summer Pronto is out

Another cracking Pronto in the post this morning.

Some really good articles and some random person relaxing for the caption contest photo (cheers Guido).

Lovely piece on Lucie (Grib).

Well done to Jools and everyone who contributed and got it produced and packaged and posted.

Well said WJB.

I think that not having a printed version of Pronto is a backwards step. There is so much info availabe these days on the web then it will become just another piece of data to download. Having a printed copy delivered to the door is far better IMHO.
I know there is an option to get a printed copy but if not enough people opt for this it will not be viable for the club to go to the printers for just a few copies?
What is the break even number Jools?

Each to their own Col. I know many have been asking for it for a while and are happy to read on a screen or print off and read. Personally I like the glossy hardcopy. If it saves the club money, then great. Bit miffed at having to pay another 10 in membership, a 50% increase for the same as I got this year. Effectively 1.25 a copy if you want a hardcopy quarterly. I would have thought another 5 would have done it. 30 will put a lot of people off imo. This is the first 'differentiated' membership as far as I know. Where next?
