George... I agree with you: keep the manual distribution within
the membership for all the good reasons you mentioned, plus
the fact that there's probably a finite supply and we need to
think of future members - the A30 will be around for a while.

I get into a similar quandary with non-members asking to put
ads into the MAINSHEET.  In that case, though, I always take ads
selling A30's since I believe it's to the membership's benefit.
The only ones I decline are broker's ads.

The obvious solution is for everyone on the list to join the
Association. We'd  love to have them.
