    Round 2 of the postcard exchange is calling for participants. Current members have been emailed so no need to reply here. Anyone else with an interest, read on...

    We now have 'rounds' of postcards where everyone on the list sends everyone else a postcard during the 'print and post' month which occurs each 3mths (4 times a year). There are currently approximately 24 members. The postcards are predominately B&W prints but there have been alternative processes, but anythings welcome.

    The upcoming schedule is :

    Feburary : Sign On
    March : Print and Post
    April : Rest period

    If you're interested, email ( nigel@apug.org ) or PM your full name, address, APUG name and email I can contact you at (I send out the mailing list)

    Cheers,

    Captain Postcard

    Erm... is it too late for me to put my head above the parapet and add my name to the list? It's been a bit slow on this thread & I missed it earlier - (people are still posting to the previous thread tho').

    Cheers, Bob.

    Mine are all out the door, and in the letterbox. 16 of them are about to go across the world, and two of them, well, across Melbourne. :wink:

    This is an interesting exercise as it shows you just how much mail the post office loses. I know of two that were sent to me in round 1 that were lost, and apart from them I'm missing about another seven.

    Anyway, onward and upward.

    By the way, Ole, I just received your one of waterlilies - is that a late Round 1 or an early Round 2?

    Mine are ready for posting, just have to send the Mrs to the post office to stock up on stamps!

    Some must go missing, some must get damaged, but some must also fail to 'develop'... If the postal services of the world only delivered that percentage of mail there would be an outcry!

    That was a late Round 1.

    Round 2 is ready to go in a few weeks' time - I'm offshore at the moment.
