    OK - just like it says on the tin....our most celebrated FF-UK : N Banner Artist Tim B has produced a wonderful flyer which we would like to distribute to the masses, for the purpose of recruiting more people to the boards and in particular to the North....seeing as though the event will definately draw a Northern crowd.

    I will cut to the chase - if you feel that you voluntarily would are able and would like to contribute, then pleae PM me and I will send you my details. Ideally payment by Paypal would be best, but a cheque will do just as good if not... * waves Jedi hand :D.

    If you want to contribute, please PM me and I will send you a copy of the flyer - not that we are untrustworthy or anything!!! [face_thinking]

    We are looking to print up around 50 x A4 colour sheets, each with two A5 flyers on...estimated cost of approx £35 total...

    Thanks again for any kind assistance that any of you can give....[:D]

    Well I s'pose IO should stick some in too :_|

    Seriously though, I've seen it and its great and will help us no end if we can attract more members.

    I hope a few more of us will chip in too, the more that do the less we'll each have to pay.

    I'll send U me money next thu when I get paid Jace.

    At this point I have to say on behalf of all us Northerners, a HUGE thanks to Go_Away for her contribution to the collection to fund the printing of the flyers! (came this morning - thanks!) Her abstinence of chocolate in favour of the FF UK : N cause is very much respected (although I doubt that Cadbury would agree!).

    This puts us into hyper drive now! [face_dancing]

    I will still continue to take any voluntary contributions however (Lord O - this does not let you off the hook - let those moths free!:p), as the idea that I have discussed with Lord O and TimB is to produce as many flyers as we can now, so at the end of CM we can just share out whats left, to be taken back to our respective areas for distribution.

    Thanks once again Go_Away! [:D]

    ps. any volunteers to help hand these out on the days as Jedi support? There may be a nice 'suprise present' in it for you!

    pps. I was in Forbidden Planet Newcastle yesterday, who have made it clear that they are more than happy to promote us at their store! Yipee!

    Second [:D] to Go-Away, lady you are a :cool: -ette :D

    I am heading to Liverpool in a few mins, will see if they are as happy to put up the posters in their shops ;) :D

    I am gonna pick up some "things" from the Liverpool shops too, I have had an idea for a "quiz"-like thing where an undecided-at-the-mo (till I see what things are available lol) number of people getting high scores will get a pressie, SW related of course ;). Nothing expensive, and more for fun, just got the idea now luckily before I go to Liverpool for the last time pre-CM. More on that when I get back.

    All I will say is
    [face_whistling] 'thank you very much, thank you very very very much, thank you very very very much' [face_whistling]

    If you remember the theme tune for the Roses adverts on TV then you must be as aged and decrepit as me! [face_tired]

    Don't worry, this is the kind of thread you can derail without consequence - people can PM you re the topic.

    Ah, Avon - I had a big crush on him *cough*

    Those were the days, sigh!

    We'll see how it goes at collectomania. Think we'll get better exposure from gettin them out there as there'll be more ppl interested in Sci-fi etc than the average joe on the streets of york.
