Dear Members,

We plan to send out a bulletin about every 3 months and this is the first - rather spartan bulletin of the year. We know you receive too many e-mails anyway, so we will keep bulletins short. If you have a suggestion, which you think would be useful for the members of our society to receive through this medium, please let us know by reply to

Best regards

David Brydges, President
Jakob Yngvason, Vice President
