Apropos, Highway’s comment of lack of activity on the Forum and the recent 'pictures of your car' thread and indeed, having seen Ian’s (Millomboy) great photo on the other active thread (and many others), it made me think we should put together a 993 calendar with pictures of our pride and joy in interesting situations. (Rlisters do one, and damn fine it is too)
The pictures for inclusion could be voted for by the Illuminati online and then sent off to Vistaprint or somesuch for printing (purchase cost around £10 for 50 calendars). We could add a couple of quid on the cost for Charidee, which would be nice. (Could flog them via Rlister too perhaps?)
All sort of Countryfile.
All ready for the New year . . .
Any thoughts?

Great idea! The epic silver arrows driving through Europe has to be top of the pops.

Ok, following on from Matty's wake up call on another thread.
I am proposing a calendar for sale in late 2017, world wide (I'll see if renlisters want one).
These are my proposed rules for selection:
1. Moody/arty photos of your 993
2. Would be good if you are able to identify month or more likely season in the picture.
3. The photo must not have appeared online or previously published before.
4. You assign a licence to use the photograph for the purposes of the publication of 2018 993 calendar.
5. Photos may originate in any format so long as they are submitted electronically in a .JPEG .jpg, or.png form. HDR images from multiple images are acceptable. Initially low res for judging and high res for publication.
6. No more than 1 photo to be submitted for judging per car.
7. I propose two of our most esteemed honorary 993 members as judges as to the images to be included, they being Mr 25 Bags himself Zingari and of course Mr Super Smudge, Kimbo. (I haven't asked them yet! So a proposal at this stage.)
8. Judges decision as to qualifying pictures is final.
9. Final date for photos to be received for judging September 30th 2017 (gives time for summer autumn and winter shots)
10. All proceeds other than direct costs of publication and postage to a Charidee TBA (I suggest Kimbo and Zingari should propose an exceptional cause that most of the members are comfortable with.)
11. I suggest that the photos are not posted here but all pm'd directly to the judges who then make the decision as to the final 12.

The big reveal occurring at end of November ready for the Christmas rush!

Happy to take on any advice comments suggestions etc. Once the judges have decided on the final I'm happy to arrange publication etc etc.

I expect cost of calendar to be around the £10-12 plus shipping.

What do you reckon?

Question

I will probably have to now rule myself out of submitting an entry in the interests of fairness, level playing field, etc . . .!

Never been seen pics is tricky. It rules out the likely never repeated silver arrows formation shot nooo

I actually think I have another shot of this that's basically identical and it's not been posted, so technically it's a contender Grin
