November–December 2023 issue of AB&GC

The November–December 2023 issue of AB&GC mailed a little earlier this month on 11 October from our printer Modern Litho in Missouri. With postal delivery delays, the upcoming holiday season, it’s better to be early than late. The issue is full of great material and gets better all the time thanks to all our great authors and contributors. We even ordered an additional 1,000 copies for marketing purposes, and as members noticed, we also provided a copy of the 32-page Houston 24 Event Info Packet that was polybagged with the magazine. Of course the issue is also online to read. Just visit the Members Portal.
