I know that this publication _did_ exist in the past. I just called
our council "Trading Post" and talked to Linda. She looked in the index
of BSA publicAtions and is unable to find a listing for it. Diana
D'onofrio, our Trading Post manager, is not currently in. She would
probably know off the top of her head when and if this publication was
discontinued by the BSA.
Does anybody have this pub, and if so, can it be transcribed into an
electronic format? It would be a shame if this publication ceased to exist
merely because it had gone out of print.
