Default A8 Germany Calendars 2018

A8 Germany will have a Calendar for 2018. The thread can be found here.

I'm not sure which pictures will be in from UK A8s / S8s but it looks like some will be in it.

If either of you wishes to have a calendar please let me know. It'd be advisable to order pre 20th of October because of the price.

Well, I suppose you can't let any old riffraff in.
I think I may just add my blood group, town of birth and sexuality in my reply just to save any future confusion

Ah, that may explain why I'm still not allowed to view the calendar thread, despite registering a couple of days ago!

Where was that info Dean?

I can log in but can't view the thread:

Please don't use the payment details in the thread. I'll collect the money myself when the time has come.

Neil or MikkiJayne, would either of you kindly deal with Royal Mail and forward the calendars?


There are no pictures on the German thread yet. But there seems to be a link between orders and pictures as the A8 Germany Forum is a small community (the A8 Freunde is the bigger one).
