My copy arrived last Friday (14th) and it's been a great weekend read! I find the new format with pictures throughout very reader friendly. Thanks for all the hard work!

Hi Malcolm,
No sign of my Quarterly yet, but I have been informed that a member just north of me received hers two days ago.

My personal copy has arrived this morning so yours should be there any time. Copies left Allen Press on December 17th (for everywhere) so we are obviously all at the whim of US and international postal services. I always used to reckon that it took up to six weeks for my copy to arrive in England after the nominal publication date. Doesn't seem to be quite that long - and this was a difficult issue to judge by because of Christmas and New Year. Apparently foreign copies go to Chicago where they are sent overseas in country batches (perhaps only twice a week) and only then split up and sent on individually.

Well, I can Cliff! Now that I have had time to take a look.
Congratulation with your pictures. But I have to say: That was no big surprise :o :D

My copy arrived on Monday 24th January - I like the new look and the content is great!
A friend in Melbourne (Cynthia Sladen) received her copy on Tuesday - usually the post to us is a day behind.

Just a thought folks ... why are there no references to, or PDF samples of, the Rock Garden Quarterly on the NARGS main website?
Surely these splendid journals are one of the prime incentives for joining our wonderful society and yet they barely merit a mention on the current site.
Specimen back copies should be downloadable and sample pages of the latest Quarterly should be featured prominently on their own page.
