to the first issue of the new PASA E-Zine.
During the course of 2007, the ADZO board

communicating, not only with existing members,
but also with old-time skydivers and people
interested in following the activities of
skydiving in South Africa.
believe that most of our members have access
to email. Indeed, our database contains
addresses for more than 90% of PASA members,
meaning we can reach our members in an efficient
and cost-effective way and on a regular
basis. Initially, we plan to distribute
one issue per quarter.
have taken the liberty of sending this first
issue to all current members with an email
address in the database. Members are assured
that the administration office strictly
controls access to member data used for
the distribution of the E-Zine.
E-Zine has two phases. This issue represents
phase 1 - a basic newsletter. Once phase
1 is running smoothly, we will look to implement
phase 2 which will incorporate advanced
functionalities such as polls, forums, secure
on-line voting, obtaining sponsors or advertisers,
photo competitions, etc.
will strive to deliver an informative and
interesting newsletter and ask for your
assistance with this. If anything interesting
(skydiving related) happens at your local
drop zone, feel free to send us pictures
(not high resolution) and a short story
to go with them. Stories could include special
events, noteworthy jumps or achievements,
a team profile, go-away's, etc. We also
welcome feedback on the E-Zine and suggestions
for future issues. Send articles, pictures,
feedback, comments and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
