SEN 1903

A number of people complained that they did not get all the text of SEN 1903 – some included their copy of SEN 1903 in the reply to show me this. I was able to read the missing text with no problems.

The reason for this that SEN is composed of submissions from a the readers all strung together with the minimum of reformatting. Much of this text is in HTML format – the format used om web pages and the like.

We insert items that we write ourselves and results from contests and table from information like Aram had prepared about USA Team Selection.

Sometimes the information prepared is in HTML format but the HTML is not perfect, sometimes joining the pieces together messes up the HTML format , sometimes people submit something that just will not fit on the page of SEN, most likely because the font size is too big and I have to ‘fix’ it and this messes up the HTML.

People read SEN with a lot of different mail programs. Some of the mail program can deal with the badly formatted HTML and some not so well. Unfortunately the one that “gives up” the soonest is Microsoft Outlook which is a little ironic as Microsoft Word that is responsible for a large amount of the bad HTML.

SEN can be read on line at and at the NFFS web site, where it can be found at the top right hand corner. The NFFS is generally better at getting SEN issues online faster than we do.

When submitting material for SEN Simple text and formatting. Do not use very large fonts in your contest flyer and do not use a multi-column format. Do not send PDFs. If you have the contest results in Excel or a similar spread sheet just send the spread sheet file and we will format it from there

Mongolia Question

Does anyone know (or can forward me to someone who does) if there will be an option to accommodate vegetarians/vegans in next year’s free flight championship in Mongolia? There are a few us that are wondering this…

Thanks, Shlomi
