We are concluding the work of publishing shunpiking in 2003.
Since August we have published five editions online in this new medium.
Shunpiking Online will resume publication on January 15, 2004, and the
next print edition of our magazine will feature our annual Black History
Supplement. Back issues of the BHS will
be available soon online well before Black History Month, as well as several
new online features, such as Winter through Shunpiking, with the Winter
Outdoor Resources Directory. Please do continue to send your stories, reports,
letters and suggestions.
As we enter into our ninth year, we once again sincerely thank from
the bottom of our hearts all those who have assisted this endeavour.
We profoundly appreciate your support. We wish all our friends and
readers our very best wishes for the New Year!
