As I recall...they do state on the entry forms that the same media that is distributed to members must be submitted for judging...at least it did in 2005.

It sounds like the judging is being done using classic graphic design principles. Having graduated from art school with a degree in graphic design, I live and breathe these principles in all my work and white space is very important whether or not you like it or agree with it.
When you have eight pages of material, even when done three column for readability and 11 point, adding white space adds too much cost. An extra sheet not adds printing costs but drives the weight over one ounce, almost doubling the mailing cost. I would rather deliver the information than leave something out to make it pretty.

I understand. We have that problem too in our unit especially this time of year when we are printing all the upcoming rally coupons in the newsletter.

This confirms the fact that email/web-based communication is the way to go! Even if 50% of your members don't have access to the web, it saves in postage and those that still rely on snail mail can get those extra pages for no added expense. Those on the web can print out the coupons and send them in.

It works in therory...unfortuantely, even though this is offered in the DenCO Unit and the web-based nesletter comes out a couple of days earlier, most prefer to receive the snail mail version.

It is recognized in the dictionary (at least it is in my copyright 1984 dictionary). But it is categorized as "vulgar slang".

So, if you want to be "PC", I would suggest you steer clear of this word.

OK. I prefer the title DOM anyway!

Ditto for NEU. We publish an electronic version a week before the snail mail version!!! We will soon be trying an opt - out program where folks can opt out of receiving the hard copy in the mail. This small effort would definitely reduce our printing/mailing costs.
