Susan, do you need our approval on your ad? LOL

Probably not a bad idea. I've spelled geese gees, put a & where a @ should go, had Paul selling chicks from May to September, instead of the other way around... Lol I'm sure there are others that I'm forgetting.

And we don't need to say anything about me modifying your post, instead of quoting it....;)

The first version of the 2017 ABC Handbook has gone to the Board for review, minus ads, title page, and table of contents.  I will be working on those while the rest of the Board is reviewing the articles, as they are laid out now.

I'm hoping we can get this to the printers this week!

If you have placed an ad and not yet paid for it, I will be sending out invoices via Paypal this week.  If you would prefer a QuickBooks invoice via email, let me know.

Thank you, everyone, that has made this Handbook a possibility.  We're almost to the finish line.

The 2017 Ameraucana Breeders Club Handbook has been reviewed, all corrections made, and is now in the hands of the publishers.

It is the biggest Handbook the ABC has had at 64 pages, with just over 10 pages of ads and the rest of it articles, graphics, and historical information. I think it's our best Handbook yet!

The cover will be a beautiful graphic, finished with a glossy finish and the Handbook is published like a paperbook - no staples!

Thank you to everyone that contributed your time, money, effort, and support in getting this to finish line.

All advertisers will get a free copy, when they are back from the publishers, and all new members who have been waiting for their New Member packets will get one, as well.  They will be offered in our store for sale, for everyone else that would like a copy.  A final price has not yet been set by the Board, but will be once we have a finished copy and can determine the postage requirements.
