    The October-December issue is almost ready. Seeing as it is the last issue of 2019 the "events" page will list 2020 events. The draft is attached.

    If you race an Opel or are involved in any other Opel event, I can list it for you. If I skipped an iconic race or show, let me know and I'll add it to the list.

    I'll be contacting Olaf to get the dates for major Opel events in Europe.

    I need to write my column. I wasn’t sure when this issue was coming out. I can get something written today if there’s still time.

    Plenty of time. I'll need everything before Christmas. If I get it all before then I can sent the issue out a little earlier.

    I'll be closing out 2019 for the Blitz soon. That makes just over 7 years I have been doing this. I estimate over 1000 pages and a half million words. (I have this info in my notes. I should check.) It's been fun, I've learned a lot, and seeing as the subscription rate has remained steady I guess I haven't run too many people off.

    Normally for an issue I am struggling to reach my page count target/limit, which is 40. It helps when others contribute stories and photos, and it makes me think I'm doing something right seeing this type of engagement. It is extra work at times, trying to get those stories done, edited, handle the photos, reviewed by the author, but that is also a pleasure.

    For this issue I had so much content that I am having to roll it over into 2020. That rarely happens. Even now, with several stories moved to 2020, I am at 42 pages (40-page budget), and the big story is only half done, and another is expected to come in today, and soon after Kyler's column.

    There is a lot going on in our small corner of the classic cars world, and I wish I could cover all of it in The Blitz. More of our story deserves to be told.

    Mike

    We danged if this issue hasn't expanded to 51 pages, even with the articles I moved to 2020, and I still have 4-8 pages coming in.

    Thanks all, for the support.

    I need to keep to my 40-page budget else I'll spend down the treasury. In the past I've put out 55 and 60 page issues, figuring if I had it, print it, that you guys would appreciate more content.
