OOW magazine

Does anyone know the status of USA’s On One Wheel magazine publication schedule?
The last issue arrived in March. Since then there’s been a USA National
Convention in America and the IUF convention in China. Will there be a double
issue with lots of coverage of these two events?

Thanks for taking this question into consideration.

To all USA members,

Sorry about the delay in getting out the next issue of On One Wheel. Indeed, the
last one mailed was from March. The one we are waiting for will probably be the
last one from editor Constance Cotter. After her many years of hard work at this
high-intensity job, if she’s running out of steam it is understandable.

USA is on the lookout for a new newsletter editor. Our tradition is to (aim to)
put out four issues per year. We are also considering different models. One idea
is to put out four or six smaller “news” type newsletters per year, not so fancy
looking and with fewer pictures, plus one big “annual” with lots of pictures.

Another idea is to just simplify the newsletter so it’s easier to produce and
mail on time. How to do it will be very much up to the person (or persons) that
take on the job. This should be a shared task, and I would like to hear from
anyone who would like to do part of it.

I will try to contact Constance by phone in the next few days, and let the
people on the newsgroup know where we stand.

If you are interested in getting involved in the USA newsletter On One Wheel, or
know someone who is, please contact me. It’s a great way to learn about writing,
editing, page layout, publication production, printing, and mass mailing. I used
it as a substitute for college in the early 80’s.

RE: OOW magazine

Hey guys,

I would be willing to take over On One Wheel - I think it would be fun! I’ve
done some writing for it and I am a journalism major, so I know about writing
and page design. I know PageMaker, Quark and Photoshop, though my home computer
does not have these programs. I can probably use computers on campus, or maybe
I’ll get a compu for Xmas… Anyway, I love journalism and I love writing, so
OOW has always seemed like a fun project for me. I’m also fairly familiar with a
lot of people and events in the unicycling world. My sister is also going into
journalism so we could team up.

WOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!! It is fun. And very rewarding. Skills I learned from doing
unicycling newsletters have translated into paying work (see something current
that I have a monthly hand in: http://developer.intel.com/update).

Excellent. It should make a great compliment to your studies, and hopefully
something you can occasionally use for credits!

Thank you very much for volunteering. I would like to offer you the widest
possible range of freedom in deciding how you will do the newsletters if you are
elected, and hopefully a support system that will help you do it.

The “elected” part is probably a formality, really necessary only if there
are other volunteers. But the board must approve the new editor, and first we
must determine when the current editor will be finished. I need to get hold
of Connie.

Fantastic Tammy! Thanks for stepping up to this. The experience you gain will
certainly be valuable in your future. And you’ll be really helping out
unicycling now.
