Bumper Issue of SAGANews!

  • bump·er1
    1. a horizontal bar fixed across the front or back of a motor vehicle to reduce damage in a collision or as a trim.
    2. a generous glassful of an alcoholic drink, typically one drunk as a toast.
    1. exceptionally large, fine, or successful: 
    That is the best description of the first issue of SAGANews for 2016!
    SAGANews Volume 37 Issue 1 is with the printer and will soon be in mail.
    Why 'bumper' issue? Because this issue is full of interesting and wonderful articles and also contains the SAGA 2016 Convention information!

    The magazine is over 30 pages, plus 12 pages of information about the 2016 SAGA Convention in Hampton, Virginia, making this one of our biggest issues yet- truly a bumper issue!

    But wait- there's more!

    The back cover of this issue (and future issues) will be very special as the mailing label will be your SAGA membership card!


    So, no more hunting to find your card as all you have to do is find your copy of SAGANews and there it will be. And I know you always keep the latest issue to hand, so it won't be too hard to find!

    Now for the fine print:
    You will only receive this issue of SAGANews (and future issues) if you have renewed your SAGA membership. So thank you to everyone who has renewed their SAGA membership and you can look for your copy of SAGANews which will be arriving around the end of February.

    If you have not renewed your membership you will not receive this issue and you will be missing out on all that SAGA and SAGANews has to offer!
    So why not renew today? You may do so either via the SAGA website or contact the SAGA Registrar, Laura at
    You will then be on the mailing list to receive SAGANews and all other SAGA communications!
