I think we need an electronic version and a print version.

I signed up three folks this weekend who do not have email addresses as they "don't do that computer stuff."

This is what I've been thinking about. Originally, I had it written up in MS Publisher and it looked pretty neat if I do say so myself. But then I realized that not everyone is computer literate and plain text is the way to go so that we can maximize the exposure of the newsletter.

Electronic/print could be an option on the membership application. Obviously the print would cost more (paper, ink, postage, envelopes, time, etc.).

I vote snail mail.

I use the web, but I know more than a few folks who live in the boonies and either do not have the 'net, or are stuck with dial-up. We need something for them.

At a bare minimum, give folks the option to get a snail-mail newsletter.

+1 ran into the same thing at the Macon show.
I think we we actually need to do is have something on the GCO application that you can check off - I want snail mail or email. We Don't need to send hard copies to most people but there will always be a few... The rest of us will be just fine with a plain text email I expect. But we will be shooting ourselves in the foot if we don't make sure to send a hardcopy to some of these old timers who aren't signed on with the whole computer thing. Some of these guys & gals are the ones who have been poking and and talking to their local government rep types for many years, face to face.

As we grow, we will need to address this situation. It is becoming more common.

Also wouldn't hurt to see if we can get Gun Stores and Ranges to put some out on the counters.
Somewhere in the back you can have a section that says "For more information or to become a GCO member please go to www.GeorgiaCarry.org or Call 678-GA-Carry"
