       Pre-release issue of
     eBullet - eNewsletter of TAGSRWC

Hello Mayberry!!!

Welcome to the "Pre-release" issue of eBullet!! The first "official" issue of the eBullet will be in June, but we felt like we needed to say "hey" to all the folks that signed up early and were wondering "Where's my eBullet?"

Good news to report, the response has been really good for the eBullet and we already have over 630 subscribers! We're hoping that you will enjoy the eBullet coming directly to your email Inbox on a bi-monthly basis beginning in June.


One important thing that we wanted you to know is that "The Andy Griffith Show" Rerun Watchers Club is NOT going away and that TAGSRWC Founder and Presiding Goober Jim Clark is NOT going anywhere. The club will still be right here!

Jim will still be at the helm. The same wonderful Mayberry information we all came to know and love in the paper version of The Bullet will be found here online in the eBullet and on the TAGSRWC web site. With Jim's guiding hand keeping the club on track, I believe we can expect many more years of fun and laughter with all our Mayberry friends.


The first "official" issue of the eBullet (meaning that Jim Clark will be the writer) will be in mid-June. The plan is to have the "Weaver's Dept. Store Newsletter" (http://www.iMayberry.com/tagsrwc/weavers/privacy.htm) and the eBullet come out in alternating months with each having new and fun information about the things going on in and around Mayberry. The eBullet will have more "Cast & Crew", "Chapter News," and other club related information while Weaver's Newsletter will tend to be letting you know about new Mayberry products. Both newsletters will keep you up to date about events but we'll do our best to keep both newsletters different and interesting.


Here are some of the major events coming up. For the very latest information on these and other Mayberry events, head to the TAGSRWC web site (http://tagsrwc.com) and check the "Event Calendar" link.

**** PARTING SHOT ****

Remember, this is just a "Pre-release" issue of the eBullet so we're keeping it short. You can expect the first "official" eBullet to be loaded with great Mayberry fun and information. I know I'm looking forward to seeing how the eBullet grows and develops as time goes by. We'll be hoping to hear from you and for you to let us know how we're doing and how we can better meet the needs of the TAGSRWC members. By the first issue, we should have an email address set up for comments, suggestions, and questions.

Be sure to drop by the TAGSRWC web site and check out all the information you'll find there. http://tagsrwc.com/

Until next time when Jim takes the helm,

Allan Newsome
TAGSRWC Webmaster
