Alpha version of Jan BBB posted

I have posted an early alpha [PDF format!] version of the January newsletter here. What is an "early alpha"? An early alpha is a newsletter version that is not complete, it has holes and is missing material that will be in the final version. But, I want to get this out so folks can let me know what I need to fix before I put more in. Expect at least another alpha after this, at least one beta, then at least one release candidate.

These will only be announced on this blog, not the general mail list.

Please let me know what you think!

Hi Steve,
Looks really good. There are a number of blank pages in the middle of the document - not sure if this is intentionally left for the ride schedule (?). Also, there is a small paragraph on page 5 referring to a number of ACTC riders who stopped to help another cyclist. You may want to include Donny's e-mail reply to this person - if you don't have it, I can send it to you.
Thanks!

Thanks for the comment. It is an alpha version and there is a lot of stuff still not there, this version did not have the ride schedule, for example. I will be posting alpha two that will be more complete, but not fully complete (still will have blank spaces.)
Also, it will have the full text of Doony's email. That should be out today!
