(Please click on title above for full blog entry)  I've had a few people ask about the 2011 coupon books for OSMA dues.  We heard back from the bank today that there was a problem with the printer and that only about a third of the booklets have been mailed out.  We've been assured that booklets will be mailed to the rest of us who haven't yet received ours in the next couple of days, so please be patient.
