Opting out of paper publications

In PR 1, we asked that people wishing to opt out of paper publications send an email to opt-out@westercon68.org.

However, due in part to the person in charge of our mailing list dealing with a newborn and another young child making him a bit busy, we haven’t gotten this email address set up yet.

Until we do, please send requests to chair@westercon68.org and I will personally make sure that your preferences are noted before PR 2 is distributed.

Thank You
Ron Oakes
Chair, Westercon 68
