If you must cut back on some things that are considered "business" I guess I 
would favor the supplement idea.  The North American Rock Garden Society does 
this.  But please do not just put it on a web site.  More older people are 
trying out computers, but there are still a lot who don't because of various 
reasons such as cost, fear of technology or just think it is confusing,  My 
husband won't touch my computers, although he wants me to keep up to date with them. 
 Also, many of us keep AIS bulletins permanently so we can go back and look 
up information indefinitely.  If lists of judges, for instance, were only on 
the web, I would have to use my time and paper to print them out and find a 
place to store them.
