Founder of Mailers Oracle
'The Boss' Editor of Mailers Oracle
Yes the NCCC does have two magazines - rare in correspondence chess - and has done so since 1965 when Mailers Oracle was launched upon an unsuspecting NCCC.
With its illustrations, articles cartoons and quizzes, some have called it Natcor`s conscience, the Club's social magazine and even its fanzine. Known affectionately as the 'O', it is an independent, monthly publication with annual fees due in September (pro rata if you join during the year) and paid separately from your Club membership. The only criterion for membership of the 'Oracle Crew' is that you must be a member of Natcor.
The Oracle attracts a large group of Natcorians whose letters and articles comment on just about anything and everything, and reflect the prevalent views of its members. So it is entirely due to your letters, notes and articles that Mailers Oracle will continue to flourish.
If the 'O' crew sound like your kind of people, do consider joining by embracing club fellowship and contacting the editor at the address below for further details.
