BCPS Centenary Review 1918-2018
(Our new book celebrating the first hundred years of our Society)

Free copies of the book were sent out in April only to UK paper subscribers, and subsequently to UK electronic-only subscribers. On 18th December the book was despatched to subscribers in France, Germany, The Netherlands, USA and Canada, who have paid their subscriptions to cover 2019 or 2020. If we are assured that postal services in other countries are at least adequate our Printer will despatch the books to them. On receipt, please email David Friedgood of its arrival.


November Magazines as at 16 November 2020

The November magazines were with the Printer on 2nd November and will have been printed and despatched today. It is likely that, in some countries, it will take a long time for the paper magazines to reach them. Please wait for 4 weeks from 16th November before reporting that your paper magazines have not arrived, and in the meantime check this Distribution message occasionally for updates. The PDFs were distributed to electronic subscribers on 4th November. Our bulk email service provider has reported that all but 11 were delivered. Those eleven that bounced were resent and all but one of those has since been delivered. PDFs were sent out to non-member-contributors on 10th December.

The archive of The Problemist is freely available in pdf format to the public on our website. The last 6 issues are excluded.
A complete archive of The Problemist Supplement is also freely available in pdf format on our website.
