A few weeks ago I sent an Email to Ruth at Flyhawk Customer Services, I asked if the company was willing to sponsor our Quick Quizzes with some prizes. As you would expect I had to show that we were a bone-fide group and that the models would be used for the explicit purpose of prizes for the winners of the monthly quiz. I received a very nice letter back from Ruth stating that they would be willing to help out and what would I like from their range. I indicated what would be a good selection and they agreed to post these to me. Unfortunately the parcel was snagged at UK Border Force and I have had to pay a customs charge, but it was not extortionate, just a bit annoying. Anyway, here are the models you can expect to see as prizes in forthcoming quizzes...

The total amount of prizes...

I hope you will join me in thanking Ruth and Flyhawk for their fantastic generosity, I think it is a fine gesture from the company.

All the best,

Paul

Yes thank you, Ruth and Flyhawk. These are some of if not the best kits out there. Tim Treadway

That very generous of Flyhawk. Big thanks to them, and also to you Paul for taking the initiative and really going above and beyond as moderator.

This truly is a top level Braille forum.

Thanks again to Flyhawk and yourself.

Cheers

Paul, thank you so much for all you do on this board and this is just one more example of why it is the best Braille forum on the web.

Keep up the good work!

I kinda balked at how pricey they are, but I know they're good kits, and now I will buy the ones I've been eyeing at our Local-ish brick and mortar HS! Win-win!
