Certainly I can't set rules for a thread but here is my suggestion>> When I read the Winter Newsletter, I started a thread and complained vigorously about leaving out entire districts from Around The Districts and District Schedules. The issue that arrived at my house today had some content from virtually every district. I am happy to see that our class is doing a much better job of serving the entire Region as opposed to just the few districts where the secretaries are self starters. So, constructively and perhaps with an accompanying explanation "Why this is a great use of our assets:" What other improvements would any of you like to see in the newsletter? What do you see as "Essential Editorial Policy?" My opening example: I would like to see a photo of at least one person from each of the NA Districts in each newsletter. It should be a recognizable face photo and may or may not include a Laser. Why: I think if the newsletter has photos of people sailors already know or at least have seen sometime, the readers of those newsletters will feel a bit more personally attached to the "big North American Association." My perceived result of this editorial policy: Any sailor who attends one out of town or even one large local invititional and who pays dues will almost certainly see a photo of somebody he knows or himself /herself in at least one of the four annual issues. Justification for this use of manpower and financial assets: I believe this sort of editorial policy would cause more sailors to open and read newsletters, find more reasons to attend events, and attend those events...which of course would bring more people out to play with me...which is why I support having a class in the first place...to cause more people to come play with ME.
