The Winter GDN is DONE!

31 Dec

Our 100th issue is now complete!

I’ll be sending it off to the printers this weekend and I’m aiming to have them mailed out the second week of January as soon as they’re printed. As always, the Winter issue is a little larger than the others so there’s more great stuff for you to enjoy!

Fall GDN is in the works!

23 Aug

I’m done my summer holidays and it’s time to get to work on the Fall issue of The Garage Door News.

Don’t forget that all club members can submit an ad for the Gas-sifieds for free! Want to thin out your collection a bit? Have a double of something? Send the ad to me via e-mail or snail mail. Ads are placed on a first come, first served basis so don’t wait too long! If you’d like to include a small photo with your ad, it’s only $5 payable to the club treasurer.

I’m always looking for new content as well. I haven’t received much response to my plea for input so you’ll have to keep taking what I give you! Unless, that is, you would like to contribute. Show off that really rare item you found at a yard sale on the weekend. Send me the pictures you took of all those old signs you saw on your summer vacation. Do you have an unusual item and some history about it that others would enjoy seeing? Any creative writers out there? How about a fictional story about your friendly neighbourhood gas station attendant? How about a poem about our hobby? I dont know!! I’m just throwing ideas out there in hopes it will spark an idea from you. I really would like to see the magazine be more of a group effort and openly welcome anything you’d care to send me.

I also would like to appeal to our members to the left and right of us here in Ontario. I’d sure like to hear about what you are up to in your parts of the country. Any interesting swap meets or auctions? Any Irving Oil specialists out there? I’m going to start highlighting the various oil companies and need some Irving info. Do you have an Irving collection and some history? Please get in touch! What can you Westerners tell us about that we might not know?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
