    @steplightly I think it was you who suggested aBreast... I think that suggestion is truly inspired.  It works on so many different levels:
    1) it's inclusive of gender, age, race, sexual orientation
    2) it's strong (I feel the pink lady is a little patronising with connotations of sweet and shutup but that may be just me)
    3) it means keeping people informed
    4) with it's link to the dragonboat name it has the sense of health and well-being and ownership of that state
    5) it's an active name not a passive name. 
      
    Anyway, I know that it would be muddying the waters at this stage as the main focus is to protest the change from The Beacon to Pink Lady, but if it comes to suggestions about an alternative, I would definitely vote for that. (@BCNA)

    @BCNA no to pink lady news letter name. I always wondered why it had to have a name? Isn't it the BCNA newsletter or magazine?
