Forum - Please use it

I have added a list of Canon equipment, tripod and camera bags etc for sale in the Forum (The right hand tab in the menu above!) and also on the Facebook page. They are not mine, someone got in touch with the Club. The Forum is the perfect place to post, especially for all those scared of using Facebook.
