Notes for the Treasurer:

Once you’ve sent off your first dues to the treasurer, you’re going to wonder what happens next. Fairly quickly, you’ll receive your welcome package with the latest three issues of The ENIGMA. Each issue has a two month solving window, so you can verify your solutions to the puzzles in the oldest issue with the solutions appearing in the most recent issue. Many members send in their solutions, either from solo or team solving, and track their solving statistics. Instructions on how to send in your solutions are in every issue. You’ll also want to explore this web site and at least lurk on the NPL-FOLK mailing list for a while to meet other NPLers.
