Blaze Calendar

www.microlodge.net

Time is upon us....  We need to choose 12 photos for Blazes calendar.  For those who don't know yet, we intend to attempt to sell as many of these as possible, with all profits going to Glencoe Mountain Rescue, a group close to our hearts, although thankfully, we have never yet had to call upon their services.  

We recently won a £50 prize in the Sunday Post photo competition, so this will go towards funding the printing of the calendar, helping to keep printing costs down.

I estimate if the calendars can be sold for circa £5 plus postage, we may be able to raise a decent sum.

Please inform friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth, jungle drums and carrier pigeon...whatever it takes, to help raise money for these admirable people who turn out, unpaid, in all weathers.

I will also put the calendars on E-Bay so they may be purchased via Paypal.  We hope they will also be on sale at the Clachaig and the Kingshouse hotels in Glencoe.

They may also be purchased directly from us by e-mailing microlodge@live.co.uk

Therefore without further ado, here are the photos.  You can vote by listing the name tagged to them. You need only vote for 1 or 12 pics, or any number of photos in between.  I will then add these votes up, and these are the ones that will be published. You can vote via the comment section on this blog, or by e-mail at the above address, or via Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/steve.microlodge

Thanks for your help in making this a reality.

Steve, and Blaze

OK, here goes:

*Baby Blaze ( a must!!!); *Aonach Ridge; *Ben Dorain;
*Blackrock cottage Glencoe; *Blaze on Tour;
*Bluebell Meadow; *Royal Navy SAR; *Elie Beach;
*Falkland Hill; *Loch Ken; *Lost Valley Glencoe;
*Meall Gaordaidh

These are a bit 'seasonal', see - but why not have two Blaze piccies per month?

Greetings from your twitter friends colliemum and Sofa Girlie!
