I can't get the newsletter to show up on the screen.:(
Do I need some special program to view it?

Ok, lets see :confused:
You should be able to just click on the above link to go to the Guild home page---then click on Newsletters to get to the list of the newsletters---then click on June 2003.

Oh, yeah, you do need Adobe--if you don't have that you will need to down load it. There is an icon on the Newsletter screen that should jump you to the Adobe website to get the free version.

If it still don't work for you, let me know---it works for me but I can re-post the link and try it that way just in case there is some sort of little glitch---I learned that technical term in my computer classes.

Oh yeah--I have DSL
If you are on a regular dial up you might have better luck by right clicking on the June 2003--then from the menu that pops up do "save target as". The newsletter has a nice big picture of Ron's Best of Show knife on the front so it may just be a little pokey loading on regular dialup.

Let me know if none of this works.

Oh and Phillip--it was good talking to you at the show. Such the gentleman you are!!

Joan, I didn't take the time (dial-up connection) to download the Newsletter this time but I did receive my mail copy, and I want to commend you on yet another great job. The overall package is first-rate front to back. Cool cover image and good article on knifemaking basics. Thank You!

Thanks guys. It is only possible because of the great demos scheduled and great ideas and help given for articles. And I must say you guys have been very easy to please with the articles. That makes my job very easy.
