The Newsletter is to be put together from the various Club Newsletters. There is nobody "on staff" to conduct product reviews.I downloaded the issue 1 sample and took a quick look through it.
Very nicely done and more elaborate than I expected.
There were two categories in GR that I always looked at in detail and that perhaps should be considered for the newsletter:
1. A New Products category
2. A Product Review category
Yes, it will depend on advertising revenue to operate. The Task Force has determined that Carla will get a small salary, and of course there are operating expenses, such as a planned website.But does the newsletter really depend on advertising revenue?
I didn't think this was intended to be a commercial product like GR.
I assume people who write articles, put the whole thing together and distribute it are volunteers who are in the hobby.
If someone wants to advertise their product - fine, charge them a nominal amount, but I don't think the newsletter should depend on advertising revenue.
Thank you. I will pass this on.I'm going to try to help out here and hope I don't get shot down. There is a discussion group at [email protected] that is open to anyone to join. It is not affiliated with any club or organization. It is a place for casual garden railroading (or pretty much anything railroad related) comments, discussions, and questions. I have already placed the sample introductory e-Newsletter in the files section. As new information is sent out, I will try to post it on the discussion group. All subscribers will be notified when new files are uploaded. You do not have to be a member of any club to subscribe. Although PNW is in the name, anyone from anywhere is welcome. (PNW stands for Pacific North West.) To join, just send an email to [email protected]. There is no cost or obligation, no salesman will call. As an aside, if you have a club newsletter you would like to share, we would be happy to have it on this page. This should be a lot easier and more reliable than the hit-or-miss of catching something on Facebook.
Hi Allen.I do not belong to a large scale group, as there are none in my area. I would love to get a newsletter,
