Early Spring 1998/Vol. 5 No. 1

Dear Friends,

I hope your holidays were bright and merry and I especially hope that you managed to play at least a few train games in between the festivities.

First of all, I want to announce a new schedule for the Train Gamers Gazette. After three years of struggling with trying to get the Fall issue of the Gazette out, I have finally admitted defeat. There is no way that I can get an issue out in September. I am physically and emotionally exhausted by the end of the summer convention season and RailCon. So, instead of fighting these circumstances every year, I am going to bow to the inevitable and just change the schedule for when the issues should appear.

So, here is the new schedule. I may reevaluate the schedule at the end of this year to make adjustments that will serve you better. Expect issues to appear in January, April, July, October/November.

Now on to other concerns. Here we are at the beginning of a new year. Many of you have renewed your memberships. Many of you have not, though. I know that a lot of you are used to renewing your memberships when you see me at conventions but this may not be possible this year (see enclosed letter). So, please consider renewing now. It is extremely difficult to budget if we do not know how much money the TGA has. Because we are never certain how many people plan to renew, we must act conservatively with an eye toward keeping the TGA as solvent as possible. There are so many projects that we would like to initiate but can't because of a lack of capital. We want to do more for TGA members but won't risk the financial health of the TGA. Why don't you renew now and show us that you want the TGA to move forward?

Also, I am looking for articles and variants for the newsletter. I am especially interested in putting together an issue on how to teach novices and children with special rules/variants for kids. If you have anything like that, please let me know.

Until we meet again,

Heather Barnhorst
