On a prior thread the idea came up of creating a 2005 calendar of our boats. I did some searching around the last 2 days ( I work for a big printing company) and finally found a feasible way to do this if we want to. It might make some sense to do a 15 month calendar so we get more out of it and the pricing is really not different (Jan 05- March 06). It would be an 11" x 17" glossy type calendar, very nice! With this size we could do what we want really, it might be cool to put 4 boats on a month given we have 1,200 members here, I think it would be easy to get 45 boats together and have them on there, maybe make it first come first serve. I asked our best graphic artist if we do it, would he do it as a free lance job and he said yes (if we pay him this way that keeps the pricing wayyyyyy down.) We would have a very cool design, he is one of the best I have ever seen! I figured the costs of printing and mailing them to everyone, etc.. and here is what they would cost us each.

Total qty ordered:

50-74 each $36 each delivered
75-99 each $31 each delivered
100-124 each $28 each delivered
125-149 each $25 each delivered
150 + each $21 each delivered
(if we think we can get more than this purchased I can check on more prices)
Photo requirements for MC pictures:

Jpeg, bitmap, eps, tiff at high resolution settings. No thumbnail photos!

I figure we have 1,200 + members, surely we can get 100 calendars bought from here, that seems to be where the pricing gets good in my eyes anyway. I dont have a problem putting this all together to make it happen, I would just want everyone's commitment upfront so we can figure how many we want etc.... Let me know what you all want to do!

BTW, I want 2 calendars, one for the garage and 1 for work! And I call a spot in July!! :steering: :toast:

what about sponsorship?

I mean like I'd pay $25.00 to have my pictures added

then I'd be sure to buy one

or

a series of calendars....
Series 1 would have certain boats
Series 2 would have other boats

or

Regional
North South East & West

chances are I'd buy more that one calendar anyway

just some ideas, and I'm sure using different images will run the price up
ie: setup times

milk, I think I got what you mean on photos. Actually if we decide we want (example) January 2005 to be Mag red's boat, February 2005 3 boats, etc.... we could do that and the price wouldn't change. As long as we are all on agreement on what's done it doesn't make a difference to me.

when I was saying sponsorship, it may have been the wrong term

I'm just thinking something like an enrty fee....to help defray production costs.

ie:
send in your photo along with an entry form describing your boat along with an entry fee...I'd pay a set amount whether my boat was in the calendar or not, this year.

if it wasn't in this year's calendar it might get voted on to be placed in next year's claendar.

I tend to over analyze things anyway, so you can just tell me to go back to my corner:cool:

Bingo!! Thats a great idea!! I plugged it into my handy dandy excel file and provided we got commitment on 45 spots (i.e. 4 boats per month) at $10 per boat entrance fee for those that want their boat in the calendar the prices would go down some

50-74 each $34 each delivered
75-99 each $29 each delivered
100-124 each $26 each delivered
125-149 each $23 each delivered
150 + each $19 each delivered

$10 seems really cheap to get your boat in cool calendar, if we thinks thats fair we can implement that in lieu of original price. Let me know some opinions and let's run with it.

Wholly cow, I almost forgot about the show!! I must be crazy!!
Let's wait until we enough people to say yes before we start exchanging moneys. Got to hit that magic # 50 first!

Professor, good point, I will have to give some thought on that.

It would not be a big deal to me to have one of my boats on the calendar but it would be cool to have a calendar with some of the pics that I have seen you guys post. Some of you guys have some great looking boats. Hey, maybe this would give a few of you guys a reason to ask some of your "friends" to be a model on your boat (the thread that keeps on going)?


OH!! Now thats what I'm talkin about!! :cool:

please leave an address to send a money order once we hit 50:steering:

maybe by that time I could get some good water/lake pictures:cool:

Will do, I was thinkin maybe use my paypal too for convenience of everyone. Things look like 50 will come and go quick!

I wonder if we could get the site to email every member about this calendar? Some people who don't frequent this place like some of us might be interested but miss out on the deal. Who would I ask to do this for us?

Professor

Paypal sounds fine.

Farmer Ted

Paypal sounds fine. I will try to update my profile with several pics, etc. when I get back to work. Oh, hey, maybe I should ask the cheerleaders to come out for a photo shoot? I mean...the safe-T-Top was meant to be a secondary seat, right?


$hit Wildman,

We need to kick Operation Skylon into high gear for this...

Post your shots in your gallery Andre!

I'm beginning to doubt you actually own a Mastercraft and just have 4 or 5 "stock" shots you post occaisonnally :eek:


...just busting your chops pal!

I hadn't thought about the cover, how should we handle it everybody, put it to a vote so its' fair or first come first serve?? :confused:

Sure it is, everybody likes old BeeeRad, I think :confused: ! It really doesn't matter, as long as I get a photo in it. Get the pics and post them here with a poll. And see what the whole team thinks. Now that is fair!

01-05-2005, 09:11 PM

How many spots are left for photos? If I can find one I would like a spot.

6ballsisall
01-05-2005, 11:01 PM
There is space available right now. How many photos spots do you want and how many calendars do you want?

bcampbe7
01-05-2005, 11:08 PM
Just one spot, but I can't find a damn picture without my dog in it... :) She's so photogenic... :)
I'll take 1 calendar.

Oh and I vote for Brad's pic on the cover. That is a sweet image...

I will pay to play as well. As noted in the other thread, I am good for at least two. What a great idea this is.

I'll take one calendar. It would be nice to have some information below each boat pictured. Year, model, engine, etc.

rem_p
01-06-2005, 01:10 PM
i'll take one as well.....my only request is we have a vintage stars n stripes.....maybe in a few years when im out of school and i have mine restored i can submit it to be in the calender.

Dan K
01-06-2005, 01:12 PM
I already told you I would like a calendar, but forgot to say that I would also like a shot of my boat in it, count me in for both.
I like the paypal idea as well, that should make it easy for most people.

I think we should vote on the cover or make it a collage (sp?)

I think the paypal is a good idea.. I will volunteer my 1979 stars and stripes for the calender. :wavey:

I'll take two if we can get it done soon. I don't have any great pics of my boat, but I'll try and dig one up if you need one.

Otherwise maybe we start working on '06 and have it ready in before December '05???
