Club Magazine

Discussion centred on if we should print it, for those who get it by post, in colour or just black and white as colour would cost 7 pence per sheet with black and white only 0.07pence per sheet. It was agreed we would print the March magazine in colour and ask for comments and raise the issue as an item at the AGM.
