WANTED - experienced DTP team to help with Catalyst

Two roles to be filled (could be one or two (or more) people):
1. Someone with sufficient nautical science knowledge to be able to sort the good from the rubbish
 and discard the perpetual motion schemes, endless patience and tact.
2. Someone with experience with professional-quality DTP software (Pagemaker, In-Design or Quark, and preferably Acrobat),
and a flair for producing attractive publications.
Both need to be self-driven and able to commit to producing a magazine on a quarterly schedule.
Please contact Graeme Ward, chairman@ayrs.org in the first instance.
