Welcome to ALDHA’s Cyber Lean-to,
our new shelter on the Internet Trail
Robert Sylvester has started up an ALDHA page on the popular social-networking site Facebook. You just have to join Facebook (it's free) to take part. Go to http://www.facebook.com and follow the instructions to sign up if you're not already a Facebook member.
We've created a Bulletin Board as a place to post notices and other blurbs about upcoming events or other developments in ALDHA. Feel free to email us with any notes you'd like to post.
Annual Membership Directory
The annual Membership Directory is put together in the late fall, after the Gathering, and mailed to each and every member after the first of the year. The 2011 edition was sent to the printers in mid-January and mailed the 1st week of February. They are shipped via nonprofit bulk rate mail, so actual time of delivery will vary. Overseas and Canadian addresses will take a little while longer.
Check out a few selected stories from the current issue of ALDHA’s newsletter.

Appalachian Trail Monopoly
Like to play games? Based on an idea from Frank Krajcovic at the 2002 Gathering, we had fun conjuring up what a Monopoly board game would be like if it followed the Appalachian Trail. The possibilities are, of course, endless. Here is just one way to look at it. If you have access to a large printer, blow up the board to about 20 inches square and it will fit over a regulation game board. (Note: this file is a PDF document.
