At the 21st Official International Queen Fan Club Convention in Prestatyn Sands, last weekend from Friday May 5th to Monday May 8th, Keith from Arena Travel announced officially the soon to come departure of Jacky's sister Val. Val has her own reasons to leave the ship (before it sinks...) and was called on stage for the very last time. The fans present were all very sad when this news was presented and Val was very emotional and crying...just as jacky, myself and i think ALL of us there...i personally have many, many, many fond and warm memories about Val, and she has ALWAYS been SO helpful and supportive to me. Through the years i have collected hundreds of memorabilia that i offered to various charity auctions at many different occasions, and she has ALWAYS helped me to get stuff signed by the band, so the items would be worth a lot more and raise more money for aids-charity in Holland and Germany. Many less fortunate people have profited from that, and it also helped making the events worthwhile organising all the more...Val has become like a sister to me through the years, and i will absolutely miss her tremendously. It feels as if i lost a leg or so....The future for OUR fanclub looks very bad, because people just on't bother anymore to renew their memberships as we have theinternet now...and i call upon you ALL out there, to contact the Queenfans you know and remember from the past...who are no longer registered members anymore, and try to persuade them ALL to become new paying Queen fanclub members AGAIN, so Jacky and OUR fanclub (our family i would say)will have a renewed right of existance and we will have many more conventions and wonderful events in the future to look forward to. We owe it to ourselves and to Jacky to help in EVERY possible way to keep the fanclub alive!!! The ONLY way to secure the future of our ever so treasured past with Queen, is to make our FRIENDS, RELATIVES, COLLEGUES, NEIGHBOURS and former members paying members AGAIN ! (or for the first time). SO...PLEASE START TODAY TO HELP THE FANCLUB BECOME BIG, HEALTHY AND STRONG AGAIN !!! because i really can't imagine the world turning round without this wonderful institute that has ALWAYS been there for US...now i feel that WE MUST be there NOW for THEM !!!!!


lifelong loyal and dedicated Queenfan.

I've mailed them a couple of times with some really great ideas. All I got back was some arrogant mail back.

I wish them good luck in finding new jobs

Yeah, I tried that too a few years back, but not to any avail, so I stopped trying. I'm surprised they so blatantly refuse to hear suggestions, after all it is their income washing down the drain.

Me too, I tried on several occasions to offer help but I just got a hundred reasons why they couldn't do something. A number of suggestions related to bringing back the web forum and making the website better, however, they seemed not to be keen on doing it.

One of the main laws of marketing is: to focus your production/business on one thing/product. It's stupid to start forum on QFC site while there's the better forum like QZ. They need in something different...
