EVERY SUBSCRIBER IN 1991 CAN HAVE ONE FREE ADVERTISEMENT.
If you have a publication, a business, a service to advertise or an event or activity to publicize, send either photo-ready copy (not necessarily fancy like a PMTójust clean black on white) or just the text (want-ad style) and Iíll put it in one issue. It does not have to be SCA-related. If you collect something or fix computers or want subjects for a college survey or whatever off-the-wall thing it might be, send it. Itís interesting to hear what hobbies and jobs SCA people have. If it works out Iíll repeat it next year; letís see how it goes the first year. Try to make it attractive and interesting, and some-thing that wonít disappear if I reduce it some.
