2. BOFFO IDEAS
**************
 
You can make it happen here. Liven up the club with a boffo idea for bob-a-job week. E-mail <enquiries@goodiesruleok.com> with your comments, ideas or suggestions - meanwhile these are the boffo ideas which our club has been working on this month:
 
 
WEBSITE POLLS
 
Last month's poll canvassed the options of which make-believe Goodies movie you'd like to star in and it looks like Bill's silent comedy won out. At least he'd have plenty of helpers when it comes to painting the whole town black and white, so it mightn't take him three whole weeks to get the preparation done after all.
 
At the end of "The Movies" each Goody is making a different type of film. In which film would you most like to appear?
 
- Graeme's western                           25 votes
- Tim's biblical epic                             8 votes
- Bill's black & white silent comedy   40 votes
- I'd prefer to do a film with Rolf       13 votes
Total                                                86 votes
 
This month we're looking at ideal holiday places to get away from it all … or get yourself right into the thick of the Goodies action in many cases. With boring old Bognor not even on the list, you're bound to find a Goodies holiday that appeals to your kink, er speciality! Just remember to call in at the website poll booth on your way to the airport or you'll have to cast an absentee ballot by pigeon or homing kangaroo.
 
Which Goodies-related location would you most like to visit for a holiday?
- August Bank Holiday Island
- Uncle King Arthur's Camelot
- The Lost Island of Munga
- Knutters Knoll Knite Spot
- to the Eurovision Raving Loony Contest
- the Jolly Rock Lighthouse
- the OK Tea Rooms
- the Dodo sanctuary
- other
- The Goodies Star Safari Park
 
 
3. SPOTTED!!!
*************

5. GOODIES CROSSWORD
********************
(by Brett Allender)
 
Here's a new Goodies crossword for fans of the superchaps three to puzzle over.
 
As with my previous crosswords, if you're not familiar with a number of the Goodies episodes listed, the information in my Goodies Episode Summaries (in the "Articles/Guides" section) should help you solve the clues.
 
There is also a copy of the grid and clues in a print-friendly format in the "Articles/Guides" section of the website at http://www.goodiesruleok.com/articles.php?id=88&page=12 along with the solution on a separate page. The solution will also be printed in next month's newsletter.
