Got mine today too.
My complaint is not with the MTFCA as they are unfortunately at the mercy of USPS, but I probably will not bother renewing.
I understand the magazine is important to some people though and until the postal service get their act together this will happen again.
There has already been discussion of sending it on disc, or emailing as a pdf file, but as some folks do not care for computers, or have poor internet service, or a dial-up connection, this will never satisfactorily replace a real paper magazine.
As another example of USPS service, I last year bought a copy of a rare book called 'King Of The Boards' about the twenties racer Jimmy Murphy (who won the 1921 French Grand Prix and the '22 Indy 500 as well as countless borad track races) from a respected book dealer in New York.
He mailed it at great expense by the supposed reliable and fast trackable signed for service.
Tracking it from this end showed he mailed it from New York on time, and two days later it was at Chicago airport. Then a couple of days later the USPS tracking system showed it as being in customs clearance in Russia!
How it got there, I don't know, but I would assume a basic requirement for USPS staff handling mail would be an ability to read, and a knowledge of some geography, so whichever idiot in Chicago put it on a plane to Russia does not qualify for the job.
Anyway, thanks to the continuous efforts of the seller in New York, who hounded USUPS daily (and kept me informed at all times) they finally managed, two weeks later, to get the Russian customs to return it to the USA, from where it was eventually forwarded here.
$45 for a so called safe, secure express post was a total waste.
This is not my only beef with USPS, but you get the picture.
Good luck Ray, but I suspect flying over to Centreville (or Bakersfield) every two months will be your only sure answer.
I am off to read my OLD mag' now!
