Newsletters of the Manitoba Live Steamers are available as an Acrobat PDF file. In order to read them, you must have installed Acrobat Reader 4.0 or greater. (Some of these Newsletters may not launch easily unless you have the "Fast Web View" option of the reader disabled).

In case of difficulty, refer to instructions for reading a PDF file from our web site).

You may download a free version of Acrobat Reader from Adobe's web site.. If you are using a dial-up modem, this may take about 20 - 30 minutes. The good news is that you only need to do this once.

If you are using the dial-up modem, a good general rule of thumb is that it will take you four to six minutes for every 1.0 MB of newsletter.
