While the mail has been slow, I want to thank a couple of our members for recently adding to my collection through their efforts.
Mark and Matt, you guys rock and thank you very much.

Could you please open the flood gates again?
Mail box has been totally empty for 3 days now.

Lol - if I had that power, I would definitely do that. I will go and do a quick rain dance though. :-)
Hokus pokus let us have lots of envelopes tomorrow (with signed cards, not bills).

Ottawa Hockey Event
Does anyone know who might be attending this event (particularly the women's alumni game - as I am trying so hard to find a few of the older women for my collection)? Also, any chance anyone is going? If yes, I can Expresspost some cards to you.
What: Parade of Jerseys - wear your favourite hockey jersey and skate down the Rideau Canal Skateway as part of the Hockey Day in Canada and 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship celebration events
When: Saturday, Feb. 9 starting at 10 a.m.
Where: Bronson Bridge
The Alumni Shinny Showdown, to be played on the canal at the National Arts Centre, will follow the Parade of Jerseys. This exciting shinny game features both Ottawa Senators alumni and Canada’s National Women’s Team alumnae.

So maybe some mixture of these name will take part in the shinny game..

Thank you so much for that update - I have not been able to find a list anywhere. I guess the consolation is that I don't need any of those women listed.
If anyone is planning on attending the Senators alumni event, I would be more than happy to send cards your way to split or even better than that. I have a boatload of Manderville cards and would love to get a couple of them signed.

All time return - not in a good way
I got an envelope back today and opened it - it was very flimsy so I wasn't encouraged.
The letter was addressed to Mark Letestu (I don't remember where I sent it though). On the letter, there was a hand-written note that said:
"Mark is no longer here and he does not sign any type written requests. Sorry."
The funny thing is that either he (or whoever opened the envelope) do collect cards - mine for sure - as they were not returned.

A few to end the week
After not getting Lee Fogolin and having a couple of envelopes out for a long time, I got 2 envelopes back from him this week.

I also got back a couple of Team Canada women envelopes that had been out for a long time with old postage:

Thank you ladies and gentleman.
