Back Issues!

Some, anyway.

Yes! We are trying to post all the available back issues of the Toboggan Times but there is trouble! Yes, big trouble. There is only one guy in the office that really knows how to convert these newsletters to a .pdf format and no one gets along with him because he's a great big jerk.. As we find the back issues and learn how to convert them to .pdf format, you will find them here. Meanwhile, please amuse yourself with the seven links that actually work.

If you're thinking that this is a mighty poor offering we must point out that it's not bad considering we had nothing at all on line just a little while ago. The on-line .pdf version is, in a way, better than the printed version because the photo quality really comes through. And, you can print your own hard copy. Try it. The only considerations is that issues after #5 were printed on facing pages so you might have some photos that span across the center folded pages.

A high speed connection will help because the files are quite large. If you need to upload Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the .pdf files, you can get it at this link for free: · Adobe ·

December 2005: Reports on the 15th Annual National Toboggan Championships of 2005. Haven't turned this into a .pdf because some of the issue was pasted up the old fashion way -with glue. Will post when this technical hurdle is overcome. Sorry.

February 2006; This was actually a limited edition meant only to scare up potential advertisers. It showed various ad sizes and costs. We had some interest but no one to follow up and get the ads and take the money. Some business we run here! Actually the guidelines are still good and if you really, really want to run an ad with us, we will take the money.
