Cheque in the post.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

And the order has gone in! :mrgreen:

I've asked for them to be done in time for Aug 21st but they have a 6 working day turnaround so should get them back with plenty of time to spare :happy-bouncygreen:

And in breaking news (well sort of as I've been really busy since this morning because of this... :P )

Due to the generosity of a last minute benefactor(s :?: ) I've just gone and put in another order for a further 8 suit deck to put in the Charidee Auction with this back design

Image

This also now means that the home-made decks we'll be using in the Dice Box venue will be be up for 'prizes' for outstanding play and/or services on Bank Holiday Monday (possibly in the Griffin... :shifty: ) - I may be induced to sign the boxes as well :P

:happy-jumpeveryone: THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR IDEAS AND ENCOURAGEMENT IN MAKING THIS ENDEAVOUR SO ENJOYABLE - I MEAN THAT MOST SINCERELY!!!!! :happy-jumpeveryone:

Hope to see everyone who's going to the con in...

They're amazing! He's going to be so chuffed! Can Penners be there with the camera when you hand them over?

I'm sure that can be arranged ;)

Which reminds me - Eelco's suggested we get Terry to come to the Workshop for it in the Odium on Friday pm so I'd better email him to ask if that's OK. Otherwise we'll ask for him to come to the Dicebox at some stage :D
