Periodicals Distributor

Following the AGM, the post of periodicals distributor has been discontinued. This is due to the fact that we no longer routinely produce any of our audio publications on cassette. Richard Harrington has held this role since 2005. By copying and distributing all the tapes required each month for “Chess Magazine”, he helped to ensure that the service continued to run smoothly. Richard's vigilance even bailed me out on one occasion when he drew my attention to a problem with the recordings on a set of master tapes that I hadn't bothered to check. This meant that the inevitable delay was much shorter than it otherwise would have been, and listeners did not receive an inaudible magazine. Richard's reliability over the years has greatly assisted me and I'd like to express my grateful thanks to him for his time and effort.
