Artcraft Newsletter #5 is Ready
By Douglas Henderson

After a delay, caused by roll orders, the end of the Play-Rite
restocking (which took 6 months - for a 10 year supply!), severe 'flu
and a host of other interruptions, we're happy to announce that Number
5 of our Newsletters was sent out via the Listbot service this evening.

If you aren't a subscriber, but wish to read this current issue (or the
past editions), go to http://artcraftrolls.listbot.com and select
"View list archive".  There, you'll find Parts 1 and 2 of our current
2-27-2001 Newsletter, which is focusing on 'two piano' arrangements
for the pneumatic player this time.  As before, there's a linked
photographic web site that ties in with the Newsletter text; you can
access the illustrated supplemental site without going to the "View
list archive", but both complement each other.  See
http://www.wiscasset.net/artcraft/listbot5.htm

The next time when our roll inventory runs low, I'll be in my 70s, Lois
Konvalinka will be in her early 90s (hopefully) and Mrs. Malone will be
close to three digits for her age.  The shipments from Turlock began on
Sept. 1st, 2000, and continued until today, at the end of February
2001.  At times it was more than we can handle, but we wanted to make
certain that Artcraft releases would be available without interruption,
well into the future.

Meanwhile, we are starting the first new Ampico arrangement since 1988
-- a series of them, actually.  If you are interested in our
forthcoming Ampico releases, subscribing to the Newsletter (which is
free) is the fastest way to get the 'news'. Or, you can wait a day for
the Archive edition as outlined above.

Regards from Wiscasset,

PS: Once again the 'date' on the Newsletter subject line is wrong,
thanks to fast typing and a fat thumb.  All the focus went into the
text, and Listbot does have a small box for entering the titles.
This was prepared and transmitted on Feb. 27, not the 20th.  (One
of the earlier in the series said 1900 instead of 2000!)
