Subject: [Leica] Leica User Forum book - update
From: lug at (Steve Unsworth)
Date: Sun, 27 Dec 2009 12:36:18 +0000

Another update to the Leica User Forum book - this is nothing to do with
Jim's excellent effort for the LUG.

So far the book project has raised over 4500 GBP in charitable donations -
see here...


This has exceeded anything that any of us involved with the project

However, there are a number of people who have donated but are yet to submit
their photographs. Taking that into account, together with it being a very
busy time of year for many of us, we have decided that the submission
deadline will be extended by a month from the end of December 2009 to the
end of January 2010.

So if anyone here has donated, but not yet submitted their photographs, you
have an extra month in which to do so.

Additionally, it would be great if we could pass the 5,000 GBP barrier, so
if you were a member of the Leica User Forum before the 23rd of November
please consider making a donation and then a submission to the project.

You can find details of the submission process here...


Thank you
