That's a terrible standard to set for news being posted - especially at a time like this, possibly the band's most active in over a decade.

Glad I'm not a member. Can't imagine what exclusives you get - Jacky's holiday snaps?!

Most probably are probably aware, but you can now easily pay for your membership online via Paypal or Credit Card. :-)

Thankfully I stopped being a member around 1993.
I can't see how she continues to survive in these times.

As you said...Queens most active time in over a decade and she's not around. I guess we'll just rely on this site and the official Queen site for breaking news :-)

The OIQFC only exists to keep Jacky in a job.

Without it, I would think that she's virtually unemployable given that she's done nothing else for 20 years. It's a noce little number for her and guarantees her some status within the Queen camp.

Great news item though - as if ALL members would be at all interested in where she's been on holiday....?

People often tend to forget that the QFC is more about the fans and the club than about Queen.

The band is what brought them together, but the focus has long been on the members as a community, rather than the band.

With that in mind, such news items ARE relevant, in that they inform members that the FC will be unavailable for the time specified.

I guess the location info adds some indication about how easy and/or expensive it might be for people to contact her privately if need be.

I think she gets a bad rap most of the time, seems perfectly reasonable to post that she will be away during a period when people might be trying to contact her.

She is after all intitled to a holiday like we all are, and just because Queen have finally decided to do something shouldn't mean she can't take two weeks off, I doubt her not being there will make any difference for such a short period.

I have been a member since 80' and frankly the fan club has really not changed in what it delivers, the problem is during that time the internet has arrived and we now get all our news before she has a chance to get anything out there.

Her big mistake (to my mind)was to close down the forum, that would have been a good place to creative some buzz about the fan club.

However I am still perfectly happyto get my mags from her, and she has been very helpful with the tickets over the years so I am not complaining, as long as I can get that from her I am happy to spend the fee, it's not like it's a vast amount.

never like seeing people slag her off
dont think its fair

i have personally seen her work her butt off many a times for the fans..if you only knew the crap she has to put up with and go through for us..

--everyone loves her when she can do something for them--then slag her off when she does something they percieve as wrong

yea how dare she jump at the chance at a few more days off to spend with her kids....off with her frickin head...

here let me help you feel better--since news in the Queen kingdom is so hot n heavy right now..

QUEEN STARS TO ROCK THE PLAYHOUSE
QUEEN stars Brian May and Roger Taylor are set to visit Edinburgh for the opening of their hit musical We Will Rock You.
The duo are expected to make an appearance on the opening night of a ten-week run of their rock musical at the Edinburgh Playhouse."

Please note that NO guarantees have been given Brian and Roger will attend. This is just supposition.

THE RHAPSODY IS SPREADING?
QUEEN & BEN ELTON?S ?WE WILL ROCK YOU?
SET TO ROCK THE UK

Regional Tour for 2009 while continuing record-breaking London Dominion Run

Like the band itself, which begins a massive European tour mid-September, the smash Queen & Ben Elton?s hit musical, ?We Will Rock You? is set to rock the UK with a 43-week regional tour next year.

Having proved its enormous rapport with the public by achieving the distinction of becoming the longest running musical ever staged at the West End?s Dominion Theatre where it is currently playing its seventh year, the musical will rock across the UK from March 2009 while continuing to play in London. The Dominion production is presently booking until October 2009.

The touring production of We Will Rock You opens at Manchester?s Palace Theatre mid-March for a twelve week season. It will then transfer to play Sunderland Empire, Birmingham Hippodrome, Bristol Hippodrome, and ends 2009 with ten weeks at Edinburgh Playhouse commencing early November.

The tour is a Phil McIntyre Entertainment presentation with Queen Theatrical Productions.

there you have it....the earth shattering news

off with her head i say!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
