Well, I'm just starting to get things sorted out around here after getting back from vacation, so let's see if we can get all the important news 'n goodies sorted out for this issue (my apologies for the shortage of features, but I figured I'd best not delay this issue any longer!)

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
A-Team Philly Fest '98
Lending Library Updates
Dwight Schultz Upcoming Appearances

VCR WATCH

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:

A-TEAM PHILLY FEST '98--A yup! It's that time of year again! Well, this summer is pretty hectic around these parts, but after inquiring on the reflector, it seemed the best date I could schedule the Fest for this year is JULY 18TH. There were requests for August dates but I just can't fit anything more in my schedule that month, so July it had to be. Apologies to those who won't be able to make it.

Don't know what Philly Fest is? It's a day-long party to celebrate all things A-Team, taking place in Center City Philadelphia. Come meet fellow list members, chat, check out memorabilia, and of course watch plenty o'A-Team (and whatever else might strike our fancy!) Last year a few people arrived a day or two early, turning the weekend into a real party and "mini-con".

I can provide travel info to anyone who might be curious. It's very simple to get "here" via Amtrack and NJ Transit (I live a very short walk from the train station), bus, etc. I can generally put up someone in my apartment for a few nights as necessary (or more, if you've got sleeping bags)--provided you're not allergic to cats (I have 2, long-haired.) There are a few fairly reasonable hotels in the nearby area as well if you're thinking of making a weekend of it. Parking in this area should not be a problem--there are a few garages in the nearby area as well as street parking.

So, if you're thinking of coming, RSVP soon! Don't miss out on the fun!

LENDING LIBRARY UPDATES--yes, we finally have some good news on the library this month. First, I'm passing along an announcement from our new librarian Robin:
----
From: Robin Ryder

Hi everyone,
Just a quick note to let ya'll know, the lending library arrived at my house safely this past Friday. I've updated the catalog, and am in process of labeling everything that needs a label. I will be ready to take requests from current library members only on Monday. You must be a member of the library to check out zines.

On Wednesday, I will be ready to start accepting new members. If you want to join, email me and I'll send you instructions on how to use the library and a catalog. These will be sent to you as an attachment in Word 97 unless you request another format. I can do Word95/6 if you need it. If you cannot read attachments, let me know and I'll send it as a regular email. A deposit and postage are required in order to check materials out.

For those people who were members of the old library and want to continue using it:

1. email me and I'll send the new catalog out. It'll be an attachment in Word 97 or Word 95/6 let me know which version your computer can read. If you can't read attachments let me know and I'll send it as a regular email.

2. I'm sorry, but Denise did not send any postage, so I can't do anything about it if you sent her postage for zines but didn't receive them. I think the best way out of this mess is to start with a fresh slate.

3. The old deposit checks are now out of date and they're in Denise's name, so I'll need new ones in my name. Just send em along (as a separate check) with the postage when you reserve your first batch. I'll send the old ones back to you along with your zines.

4. I'll need updated mailing addresses and new email addresses for ya'll if anything has changed.

Current Members of the old library who want to discontinue using it: 1. email me with your current mailing address. If I have a deposit check on file for you, I'll send it back. Otherwise, you'll need to deal with Denise. If you sent postage for zines, but didn't receive them, I can't do anything about that, no postage checks were included with the library.

2. Please don't send me, Sockii or Barbara any irate emails, we have all put a considerable amount of our own personal time and money into getting the library restored.

Robin

Barbara has also set-up a website at

http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Studio/3466/library.html

where you can download the library catalog.

Also, I've been asked to pass along the following note from Denise to all the newsletter subscribers:
----
From: Denise Messer

I owe you all a huge apology. I let a lot of people down and I'm so sorry.

I have a long, hard job ahead of me working off all the bad karma that I earned myself with the library. I had plenty of reasons why I couldn't do it anymore, but absolutely *no* excuse for not getting with Nicole sooner and arranging for someone else to take over, and then not following through on my promises when we finally did make arrangements. I don't consider myself "off the hook" with the library, and I won't for a very long time. Making financial restitution is the easy part, and I'll be doing just that. Please e-mail me privately if I owe you deposit or postage money back, and I'll answer promptly. I know it's going to be hard to win people's trust back, but I'm willing to try.

I especially want to apologize publicly to Nicole, because she trusted me enough to let me handle the library in the first place, and then I let her down big time. I hope that you can forgive me, Nicole--I'm very, truly sorry.

I'd also like to publicly thank Robin for taking over running the library. I'm sure that she will do a *super* job with it and help it grow and thrive again.

And, a special thank you to Barbara "Ace" Coleman for facilitating the whole transfer and making the trip to come get the 'zines. I owe you, my friend.

I really love the people on OnTheJazz and the fanfic list--I've gotten to know a lot of you over the past couple of years, and I'm sorry that I've let you down, both in regards to the library and my lack of attention to the administration of the fanfic list. I do read every word that gets posted, whether I comment or not, and I'm really going to try to start acting like a real "List Mom". I think we're all really lucky to have Nicole around. I know she's off-line right now, but I thank her for taking care of so much stuff that I should have been taking care of while I've been trying to get up the courage to apologize.

I'll try to do better. Please forgive me.

Thanks,
Denise Messer

DWIGHT SCHULTZ UPCOMING APPEARANCES--It seems Dwight is keeping busy lately. First, here's an announcement I found on-line about an upcoming live performance by Alien Voices:

If anyone manages to catch this, please send us a review!

Thanks to Marianne for catching this next one; Dwight will be appearing in an upcoming episode of the Showtime network series "Stargate SG-1". Here is the episode summary:

"O'Neill and the SG-1 team travel to P7J989, where they discover a beautiful garden and a dome full of strange metallic chambers, each containing an unconscious person. As the team inspects the chambers, they are trapped and knocked unconscious. They awaken to find they are reliving pivotal moments in their lives in the hope of changing the outcome. Teal'c joins O'Neill on a battlefield where the Colonel lost a patrol; and witness the death of his parents in a freak accident. A shadowy figure called The Keeper (Dwight Schultz) steps forward and explains; they are part of a game that feeds memories into a virtual reality he has created for the amusement and edification of 'his residents' in the metallic chambers. They are there because, he says, the planet has been rendered uninhabitable by pollution. But he's lying and when the SG-1 team threatens to reveal his deceit to the others, he admits defeat. Or does he?

Episode Number: 204
Will air on: July 17th, 1998"
