MVPA GPW Restoration Guide

Post by Mike Wright » Sat Feb 10, 2018 6:51 pm

Hi Folks,
The revised MVPA GPW Restoration Guide is in final draft review and we need to decide by next Thursday what binding to use. I decided to poll you all to see what is the most popular and to give you all choice in the matter. No guarantees, some depends on cost, but thought I'd see what folks want.

Mike,
When everything is said and done can you post the details on how to buy one? This would be very handy to use as preparation for shows.

Thanks,

Brett

Hi Brett,
the guide will be available from the MVPA. You will be able to go to their website to purchase it.

It's been almost four years in the making. We're trying to have it ready by this next convention in June. We''ll see!

I thing the GPW guys are behind the revision, headed by Mike Wright. I doubt those of us who are assisting him are as up on the MB as the GPW. Maybe the Lloyd White books could be condensed and follow the same format but you'd have to check with them.

The revised GPWJS is being produced for the MVPA at no cost and any revenue for sales reverts to only the MVPA so that would be a conflict of interest perhaps.
