BMX Plus! june 1983: You may have noticed that this is our June issue. And you may be wondering what happened to our May issue. No need to worry. This was going to be the May issue, but we decided to change the date to June. Why in the world did we do that? you ask Well, it's quite simple. When we changed printing companies, we found it was necessary to change our cover date system as well. Don't worry about missing an issue. All subscribers will find that their subscription will be extended one month as a result of this change.
