Default NASWA news

For those that are members of the North American SW Association (NASWA) and might not have heard - Bill Oliver, who handled the publishing duties of the Journal, passed away from a heart attack this past March

Consequently the old address on Wildflower Road has been closed down, and the club's future is being evaluated. The Journal is also on hiatus for the time being, April probably being the last issue for a while. They have a (presumably) temporary mailing address of PO Box 3292, Allentown, PA 18104

Our prayers go out to the Oliver family. I will try to keep everyone in the loop as to how NASWA will go forward, if indeed it does.

Mike

I understand that a new publisher has been set up so the Journal will keep going for the time being. Expect some hiccups as the new publisher comes on board; hopefully that won't take too long

So sad to just hear this. I knew Bill Oliver when I lived in Bucks County, PA, such a nice person. He loaned me his Drake SW4A to get back into SWL. He will be missed.
