well gods on the job.
but guy,s you would laugh at the faces when they see the dog collar walking towards them.
i almost pee my self laughing when i ask them if there members hand them a leaflet and tell them its for charity.
don't worry i did tell them it's not organised by the church just some good loving petrol heads.
and maria is still of the road but im geting a new engine for her and giving her a new paint job bitching metalic black with silver flakes.
putting on a nice set of wheels.
and a nice set of side rails and A frame bumper in chrome i think.
so she will look heavenly.
i even put a couple out in bodmin cornwall at tesco's Mmmmmm.
so keep up the good work brothers.. 8)
bless thee lord for such things as good friends mudding camping BBQing with Beers.
A yes i am a real Minister of the faith.
with passion for my fonty and mudding green laning and of course god'S best brewed BEER

:idea: Having just printed off a couple of copies of the flyer it came out looking a little "fuzzy" or "blurred".Reading through the comments about size would anybody mind if I looked at converting it into a PDF file so it can be viewed/printed in Adobe or resized by anybody who wishes to do so.
Will have to look at how to have it available online but I am sure the tech guys can help.

Flyer

Postby Huwwalford on Sat Aug 18, 2007 10:09 pm

Hi,

I produced the flyer using MS Powerpoint, the saved it as a JPEG image (So it was smaller and un-editable). This is the way I produce picture documents in work. I only use adobe to read documents but your statement has got me thinking that maybe I should look to use adobe as I think it will give better picture quality. Let me know if you want me to forward the document to you in MS powerpoint. The file is on another computer so I can't tell you the size.

Cheers,
Huw.

:twisted:
Having now sorted out the gremlins in the machine I am now able to update the flyer but would like some feedback on what it should contain.

The list of members willing to take part is growing but should we think about trying to get "help",donations ,etc.?

What size would you require?

Just one thought on the leaflet for this...

Take out the words "This is not a scam" as people are too used to seeing that in those emails that people are always getting from Nigeria or West Africa etc about having 5 million dollars etc... most people see that written and immediately think it IS a scam.

Will be working on a new flyer after New Year as a little busy now.Thanks for the input rangaKoo.

That was part of the original artwork and think it now needs updating.

Hi All, It would be nice to have that it is dedicated to Rob Turbo on the flyer, as long as his family didn't mind, I think it's a great idea. ATB. Reeco

Does anybody know Rob's surname? I think it will look a lot better.

Thanks,

All paperwork and publicity will carry the line

"Dedicated to the memory of Robert John Mills (Turbo) 1972 - 2007"

Hope this is ok
