Summer 2020 Durant Partner, Have you got yours yet.

Please let me know who has not received their Summer issue of the newly designed Partner. According to the printer it was mailed our of his place in Ohio on August 17th. I know some have received theirs as did I on August 23rd. I see that Don Shilling just received his so for some reason they are running late. Not sure if it's something the Printer is responsible for or the Post Office. Just post below if you haven't gotten it and we'll see by the end of the week. I have a number of extra copies that I can mail out to those that have not received them. I am going to mail the Printer to see if he has any reasons. With a new Editor and a new Printing company in Ohio I expected some hick ups.

Re: Summer 2020 Durant Partner, Have you got yours yet.

I sent an email to the Printer who mailed out the magazines. He advised that he had not received any of them back and as far as I know Shawn our Editor has not received any in return postage. The printer stated that he is a member of the ACD club and their magazine was mailed out on August 7th and he has not received his ACD magazine yet either. It appears the Post office, which has been in the mail a lot lately is the culprit. I'm not sure what we can do at this point but wait and see when they will arrive. I do have some extra's here that I will mail out to those who do not receive their magazine but I only have a limited supply so I can't mail everyone a copy. We'll give it until next week and see what turns up.

We have not received ours as yet. Will post and let you know when we do receive it. I guess the post office is just taking their time.

I have to think that part of the problem have have been the addresses used or maybe they didn't print correctly.

I received mine about a week or 10 days ago. The article font size and line spacing has changed on some of the pages, so not as much material will fit into the partner. The partner has a new look to it and I have really enjoyed them. Steve

Re: Summer 2020 Durant Partner, Have you got yours yet.

Hey Steve, glad you and Norm got theirs. Yes we've changed the front to a art deco version to go with the era of the cars and to freshen things up a bit. I had some members suggest the changes so we thought this would be a good time to do this with a new Editor and Printer. The font size also increased a bit (for our older members eyes). The content really isn't due to the change of style or font, it's the lack or material we have. With the Covid 19 cancelling all our chapter meets as well as the national meets there isn't much material to fill. This upcoming fall and winter issue will probably be thin also, (Unless people send in articles to our Editor) but next year with this Covid 19 gone (I hope) we should be able to get back together and go to our meets and tours as usual and the content of the Partner will grow. Shaw did a great job for us for his first issue and we look forward to him putting out many more for us.

Re: Summer 2020 Durant Partner, Have you got yours yet.

Hey, guess what, my partner showed up today.

I have mentioned this before but is their any reason that when material is scarce and filler pages are needed why can't we use a tecnical page here and there or an article from some of the old Durant Standard's, or occasionaly include pages from the interchange catalogue like lights and lenses...A lot of good information out there it seams a shame we are not using it.

Re: Summer 2020 Durant Partner, Have you got yours yet.

I'm glad that most of you have received your issue of the Partner. Not sure why the long delay in getting them since they were mailed out on August 17th but I guess we must blame the Post Office on this one. Enjoy the issue and work is beginning on the Fall issue. Send in those articles.

Hey- Good news. We received our Partner today Wednesday Sept 9. Sure like the style and the articles. Glad to see that Mike sent a letter and Certificate of Apreciation to Carol. She deserved it after putting so many years and producing award winning magazines.
Sure be glad when all this COVID stuff is over. My wife and I went and had our COVID tests done yesterday. Hope all turns out well.
