It does make a lot of sense, and it's an idea I've toyed with, along with the idea of simply posting the current and all back-issues to the website for members to download. Some clubs do this, but I don't know how you deal with the potential loss of paying members as a result, viz: why should anyone pay membership dues for the newsletter (which is the primary benefit of membership for most out-of-town members), if anyone can simply download the recent issues from the website, for free? It's a sticky issue; do you post newsletters for free and risk a drop in membership (and loss of potential new members), or do you keep a tight rein on the "product"?

Your site could probably use an update, anyway — much has changed in five years, including browsers, switch to XHTML, etc.
ROFL! Sorry about that, but our "website" barely deserves the name: as in all small clubs, getting anybody to do anything at all is like pulling teeth. The person who keeps up the website (the only person who even knows what HTML stands for] has only the most rudimentary grasp of the subject, and we're lucky to have any online presence at all. It's strictly bare bones HTML 1.00 or nothing--and often the latter.
