ASDIC has a short Newsletter called Ping! which is sent to members every few months. This contains news of general interest to ASDIC Members, but it is also an opportunity for Members to promote information of interest to others, either about themselves or their local community. So send any news stories and pictures that you would like published to the ASDIC Office for consideration.
