Notice: The Canister is going to electronic delivery in Summer 2011

Over the last several years many of our members have asked if the Canister could be made available electronically. This prompted the club to experiment with posting the Canister on the club website to make it available to all. Since this has proven quite successful and in order to reduce production and mailing costs as well as to save a few trees we have decided to make electronic availability the default delivery mechanism for the club newsletter. Several members have however stated their strong preference for regular delivery of a paper copy of the Canister. In order to accommodate these folks we will continue to mail Canisters to all members and aspirants who request it. Please send such requests to Dave White either by email (ccswhite [at] or regular mail (28 Mulberry Street, Clinton NY 13323-1541).

The planned switchover to electronic availability will be for the Summer 2011 issue of the Canister. If you wish to continue to receive a paper copy of the Canister after that please contact Dave White.
