Upload the newsletter and rides PDF files first. Copy the old newsletter link into the newsletter archive section. Then change the links below to show the new filenames. Remember they are case sensitive. Please update the feed date also, so that external feed readers know an update has been made. The easiest way to do this is to completely replace the whole line that shows your name and date stamp with four tildes ~~~~ which is automatically replaced with your name and a new date stamp when you save your edits. Make sure you don't erase any existing end of line returns ie keep the linespacing / formatting the same.
