ER Forum 2013 Calendar Brainstorming

BBBAmI mentioned the idea of an ER Forum calendar.

Post your ideas about a possible 2013 ER forum calendar. For example, we could have a theme, or just have photos of members (oops!), collages, pictures taken by members (could be landscapes, etc.), vote on the top 12 photos to be included, etc.

One option would be to do it with, for example, mypublisher.com ($19.99 see here), and then each member could order his/her own.

Another option would be to just post the PDF files, then each member could download the files and print them at no charge.

Or we could do both of those options.

We could even do a simple 2012 calendar.

Post your ideas here.

I think it would be fun.... I'm sure the LBYMer's would want to print theirs out. As for me, I wouldn't mind payin' for it.

DH's motorcycle group submits pics of their bikes for a calendar, then the members vote on their faves.

Shoot...here's an example of a December photo....

bbbami, are those sedentary pics to off set the Trombone Al biking pics? His relentless bicycle touring alternately inspiring and intimidating to me. Now when I see these comfortable folks in retirement I just relax.
So lets keep it real, no calendar pics of retired folks jumping out of airplanes, scaling high mounts or pumping iron on muscle beach with Arnold.

How about sitting in the shade on a creek bank with a cane pole between my toes, maybe even asleep...?

T Al does love his biking....he stays in great shape. Alas I can only admire from afar....

'Course he has proven he does relax every once in a while.

Sure.....but if it's a creek in TX, does it have water in it?
