Email the bulletin editor (Alex). I'm sure he would be pleased to receive good clear photos for the calendar and bulletin covers.

Ironically, this is probably the one most likely to be delivered in poor weather conditions!

Generally, however, I support the use of paper wrapping rather than single-use plastic, so is the issue the grade of paper used?
Mine arrived yesterday - good condition!

Those that arrive in plastic wrappers, I cut open with scissors and use for wrapping my sandwiches at work. The wrappers are almost always dual-use!

Today's mail was somewhat drier than yesterday's (despite the weather being no better) and included the Bulletin. Although the envelope was torn along part of a long side, the contents were undamaged.

Mine arrived yesterday, dry and in perfect condition.
Another great read and quality that befits the society.
Thanks to all those involved and who contribute.

So was mine. Absolutely pouring with rain though when it was delivered. The contents were OK though.

The '.....' ending there seems to insinuate a shortfall in the level of service?

In fairness it's hardly the postal services fault if it's raining cats and dogs and the letters are 'protected' in paper envelopes? Most posties do what they can to protect our mail but not all of them are so caring and like I say, they can't help it if it's raining hard, the envelope will get wet, simple as really.

Dupont's Tyvek envelopes are up to the job, they're water resistant, look much nicer than plain plastic and they're recyclable. http://www.dupont.co.uk/products-and...ike-tyvek.html

We have a BVWS committee meeting this evening and, although I cannot attend, I have asked that this be discussed as part of the bulletin editor's report. Hopefully we can use something better next year.

Thank you for the suggestion of alternative envelopes Steve, that is very useful. I have highlighted that post to the chairman.

I've had stuff sent from America that presumably was in Tyvek envelopes for protection over long distance shipping. Although it looks like 'swirly paper' you literally cannot rip it. Don't know anything about prices mind!

My Bulletin arrived safe and sound yesterday.
Been able to pay online makes subscribing so much easier particularly for us overseas members. I am sure it will help boost subscriptions.

The envelope on mine was slightly torn and battered at the top, but the magazine was fine. Looks like a couple of good TV related articles too- and a new standards converter project!

What's more, I flicked through the calendar and December's picture leaped out at me. A sobell 1000DST dual standard TV! I've been trying to find one of these for years and so far I've only ever found reference to one that actually exists on the Forum.

It will be December for most of next year I think!
Well done to the editor, Alex, and to the contributors for making it such a good magazine!

Cheers
Nick

I believe the photos for the calendar were taken at the museum in Dulwich, so that is where you can see one in person.

Ah, thanks Paul- I didn't know they had one. I've been meaning to visit the revamped museum for a while but somehow the journey always seems to put me off! Must try harder this year!

Cheers
