Smoke Signals

Nov/Dec '10 


The boys say its time for a change in 2011.

  • The NAF is looking for a new Editor for the on-line magazine "Smoke Signals" to replace Buck Conner. 

  • Howdy Davis (Chief Factor) will not run for his current position in the 2011 elections of NAF Officers coming up shortly.

That said, NOW is the time to start considering who would make a good replacement. The guide-lines per our governing rules will be reviewed in this issue by the Captain. 

  • These guide-lines will be followed as set down when voted and agreed on by all parties involved when setting up this association. Period - NO "If's or questions asked" end of that story. Those involved will tell you this was a long and hard process to get put in place (a full year of discussions, emails and letters going and coming).
