old handbooks up for grabs
I have got a complete set of handbooks from 1966 with just a couple missing - have lugged them from house to house but now they are free to a good home
Hi......before you 'pass them on' can I just run a check please that I've got all the info I need for the book. I was missing a couple of years (though I've now filled the gap that was 1975!)
If it helps I have all the year books from 1962 to 2013 except for 1981.
Are the Handbooks still available? I have a good home for them...
As does the class if you have them still?
Jeremy will be the proud owner on saturday - Dan will take them to them to the have it away day
I have yearbooks from 1975 - 2002, plus assorted MR magazines/newsletters fron within these dates, looking for a good home. Are they of use to anyone?
I have a good home, please give me a call...
Hi Jon, unfortunately someone has got in before you by e-mail, but if we can't arrange collection then I'll be in touch.
I agree with Jeremy. If there is archive material available then the Class Association should be given first refusal.
Well I don't want everything. I can't keep magazines as there would just be too much, but all the old information is stored in those year books and at the moment the class records do not have any at all other than my personal collection which is sketchy at best!
See I had a senior moment and put my email address in the wrong place - please don't click on it - I get enough offers of blue pills and million pound windfalls already.
It would be great to keep the magazines as well, however to keep 60 years worth of magazines would take up my spare bedroom!! I and my futrue replacement just don't have the space keep all that. Besides, the magazines a re full of useful information for members, it is not always important historical information that would be of value in the future. The yearbooks are more important in my view.
Whatever you do, don't throw the mags until we've investigated the possibilities of transferring these to a digital form. There are many companies out there who do this and if we have spare cash, this would be a good use.
I have a feeling that I have probably got a complete set of magazines squirreled away from the late 1980's to now...just a question of finding them! Who did the Tubo cartoons (e.g. I like to sail a bit less pinched in this chop) way back then?
Hi.... if the magazines (as against the year books) are still available then "yes please"! I'm more than happy to hold onto them whilst completing the book, then if there is longer term solution, I'll hand them all on!
Dougal whose magazines are you after just now? I'm in New Malden on the SW edge of London which may not be the most convenient for you?
