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 2020 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 had paid their subscriptions to cover 2019 or 2020. The final batch for the remaining overseas subscribers who had paid up to at least 2019 was despatched on Monday, 28th June.

IMPORTANT: Please email the Assistant Treasurer when you receive the book, so that he can check you off.

If you had not been paid up to at least 2019 at the time and wish to obtain a copy of the Centenary Review, it will be possible to purchase one or more. Watch this space for the price and how to buy.


July Magazines

The July magazines were delivered to the Printer on 5th July. It is possible that, in some countries, it will take a long time for the paper magazines to reach them. Please wait for 4 weeks from 5th July before reporting that your paper magazines have not arrived, and in the meantime check this Distribution message occasionally for updates.

The PDFs for electronic subscribers will be sent shortly.

The PDFs for contributors will be sent as soon as the list of recipients has been produced.

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.
