WANTED: NEW EDITORS FOR THE INTER-CITY SCOT.

Would you enjoy getting newsletters from all over North America?
Do you like to get mail all year from fellow
dancers? Do you have access to some kind of computer? If so,
consider taking over the Inter-City Scot! There are
three main parts to putting out the Inter-City Scot, and after
six years of enjoying them, I'd like to pass any or all
of them on:

EDITOR: receive newsletters and fliers, glean out the special
events and compile them into the calendar, using
the Contact List information. Updating the Contact List could be
separated from this as a fourth job.
CIRCULATION: Keep up the mailing list: receive checks for
subscriptions, produce mailing labels and renewal
notices.
PRODUCTION: Print and mail the calendar and contact list.

If you are interested in any of these or would like more details,
please get in touch with me as soon as possible. I'd
like to see the Inter-City Scot under new management by summer.
It's a lot of fun, but it's time for me to move
on. Thanks!
