The Southern Yarn

Our Newsletter: The Southern Yarn

yarnhead

Staying in touch with things down under is one of the functions of the Down Under Club of Winnipeg.

In addition to contributions from many club members, editor Charlie Powell gleans the web and other sources for tidbits of information that might slip through the cracks of the usual sources, then prints them in our newsletter, The Southern Yarn.

Below are issues of our newsletter in PDF format. They differ from the printed version in that they are in color and may contain additional pages of information and photos that did not fit in the print version. To view them you require the Acrobat Reader software that runs on almost any computer system and can be downloaded free from Adobe.

Members of the DUCW receive their copies by email or regular mail on fabulous yellow paper! Learn more about becoming a member.
