    Default GAGB Calenders 2009

    The GAGB will be producing a calender this year to raise funds.


    The calenders will be professionallyprinted desktop calenders with a cover photograph and a photograph for each month.




    If you do not know what the GAGB is about please look GAGB. Membership of the GAGB is free, however there are costs involved with running it. At the moment the costs are either met by the committee or through donations. Many thanks to all those who have supported us in the past.


    To produce the calender we would like some input from the caching community.


    Please help us by supplying us with Photographs you have taken while out caching and please feel free to purchase one


    Pictures by the 4th of December 2008
    Confirmed & paid orders by the 10th of December for those wanting dispatch for Christmas.



    Photos of NOT LESS than the following resolution.
    1300 pixels x 800 pixels.

    Pictures: can be e-mailed to calendar@gagb.co.uk




    Orders: Simply send us 5 via paypal@gagb.org.uk with the postal address obviously multiple calendars will be x 5

    Order here

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    After much head scratching, and discussion the GAGB committee have decided on the images to be used. Heres a peak at the front cover of the calendar.

    I've just posted the first batch of orders of Calenders, 35, to 22 different locations.

    We now have 15 Calenders remaining.

    If you'd like delivery before Christmas, please ensure that you've ordered by 9pm on Wednesday.

    Just received an email titled 'Your package will be sent by PayPal Postage with R...' - very nearly deleted as it really does look like a typical phishing email subject. Had a look anyway, to satisfy curiosity!
    I guess it should arrive soon.

    Due to time constraints we decided not to put any information about the images in this years calenders.

    We'll be setting up a webpage to feature the images, and provide the appropriate details.

    With this years calenders out of the door (there are still 10 left) we'll start thinking about next year.......

    Suggestions for themes welcome, and whilst you're out and about start thinking about photos for next year.

    Indeed. So make sure you're all taking your cameras out on those caching trips.

    Received mine this morning - very good!

    It would be good if the website page with info on the locations could be done ASAP, because I'd like to print off the page to include with the calendar when I give it as a Christmas gift to my friend.

    Currently we still have to put the webpage up as promised.

    It simply fell through the cracks of the festive period.

    Any more info on this? I like the calendar, but it'd be nice to have some information about the locations/caches.

    And that's not JUST because one of the photos is mine...

    Mine is the swans in the sunset at Arnside - February I think (not got the calendar handy).
    I'm Quite proud of that picture. The only edit to what came out of the camera was to straighten the horizon. I'm a firm believer in getting it 'right' rather than playing with photoshop/gimp.

    Two caches very close by:
    ODS: Arnside Viaduct and Kent Estuary Tidal Bore
