From Debbie Eiland Turner:
I'm getting ready to send out changes and additions to the Cooks Register. The current edition was delivered in November 2008. I will be sending e-mails to all who purchased the book soon. If you do not received an e-mail in a week, means I do not have a good e-mail address for you. Anyone who purchased a book but was not listed will listed in the Addendum. There are still some books left to purchase if you never got around to getting one. Send updates to firstname.lastname@example.org
From Rocky Rockwell:
It's come to my attention that people are misinterpreting the trivia question for my North of 90 , East of 79 articles in the Trails. There is no deadline for submitting an answer. August 15 is not a deadline. Rather, once you figure out the North of 90, East of 79 reference, what was true about that prior to August 15 of this year as far as CASI is concerned?
