The list is sinking down the page; shouldn't it be pinned at the top?

Meanwhile... I've become the first person to pay for the calendar...  ;D

Details of how to order and pre-pay for the Calendar have been sent to everyone who has placed their name on the Calendar pre-order list. 

The Calendar is shaping up to be a lovely item which is unique, in that the photos are from our very own photo competition plus a few from the Forum's Photo Gallery. 

The Calendars are being sold at cost price plus post and packaging to everyone who has pre-ordered and paid.

Thank-you Bobso and to everyone who has placed an order and pre-paid for the Calendar so far.  This helps us a lot to have actual numbers to give to the printers.

Hi Lynda, When i first saw the picture of the QE2 on the calendar i immediatly went --"WOW". If the rest of the pictures are as good as this--(and i have no doubt they will be)--then you have a winner here. :)

The inside monthly Calendar pages are equally good.  Because the Calendar is A3 in size half of the page is given to the photo which  shows the photos at their best.  I have draft inside pages from the printer but because they are large files and in pdf format I need to find out how to post to let everyone see them.

Today on board Queen Elizabeth, Lynda revealed the prototype for the new calendar and I have to say I was totally gobsmacked.  It is truly stunning, very very professional, striking and high quality.  You can see it on the table in these photos.  We all owe Lynda a debt of gratitude - she has put in a huge number of hours into putting this together, and still has a lot more to put in, all totally voluntarily.  I thanked you today Lynda, but thank you again!!

If the cover is anything to go by, it really does look stunning, and its larger than l imagined.
I think we all owe Lynda a drink ;D.
Given the number of pre orders its looks to be a sailaway success.
 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

If you send me the PDFs Lynda I can sort it.

I was delighted with the response I had from Forum members who saw the actual printed draft of the Calendar pages.  It is good to know that you are on the right track when working on something for the Forum. 

Last week I sent a PayPal link to everyone who had pre-ordered the Calendar.  Rob has now put the link on the shop page so that the option to pre-order and pay is open to everyone.  The Calendar is being offered at cost price up until the end of September.  After that there will be a slight increase in the cost. 

If you want a Calendar now is the time to think about ordering the first ever QE2 Story Calendar.

Just placed my order - unfortunately my job hours were cut yesterday from 40 hrs per week to less than 10 - so I only ordered one.  But don't fret - I will order the other two next week (I had asked for 3) after I get through the 1st of the month bills!

Thanks - time to regroup and go on I guess!  The bright side - I'll have more time to spend on the forum!

So sorry to hear about your job situation Kathy.  Don't worry I will hold the other two calendars for you!
