Yup, we started this at the end of the picture thread...

I'm into it and would be happy to head it up. I like these sorts of projects. Someone asked why not a 2012 calendar instead of 2013 and to me, 2012 is not realistic, but 2013 provides for all kinds of time do it up right.

Falling up started the fb page so seems the ball is rolling....

I thought i could spend some time on it over my winter break.
Its a swell idea.

All feedback on this should be directed on this thread from now on. Yeti's rant on photo posting has indeed turned into a train wreck.

2013 would be the only way to make it work as Ednaout as suggested.

I will gladly help out as much as possible. I think that the buzz should be on board. It will make a huge difference in participation as well a financial success. When its all said and done, I want to be able to hand over a sizable check to the charity of choice.

As Carvedog said in the previous thread..There can only be one Buzz calendar. Let this be it!

I can easily design a calendar once I have 12 good photos.

So my only interest in this calender is to raise money for F.D. But I am still questioning why wait till 2013. F.D. needs and could use the money in 2012 and then the calender could be done in 2013 as well to raise more money. It doesnt take 14 months to create a calender! With the 5 minutes of research here is the timeline I see.

55 days until the first of the year
10 days for photo submission
10 days for voting on the photos
3-5 days for Dana to design the calender if he is willing
4-8 days for printing per Gotprint.com
1-2 days to ship to most M.B. purchasers.
That puts calenders in hand around Christmas time!

Cost per calender is about $6 say you get 250 made total cost $1500 sell them for $20 total sales would be if you sold them all would be $5000 then profit would be around $3000 after all the fees for setting up a non for profit business.

I dont know about everyone else but it would be pretty cool to be able to send a check to F.D. in 2012 instead of waiting till 2013. If you dont think you can make it happen put me in charge and it will happen!

So why not let ecarlson crank one out for 2012 and ednaout could focus on one for 2013.

Just a thought.

Who's putting up the startup $? Seems like that is what will drive the timeline.

You cant just "crank" one out unless you want it to suck.
It has to be done right or it will be waste of time and money.

Besides, the one for 2013 will have female paddlers in the nude...wouldnt you all want to wait for that??

That was the question I was going to ask next. Myself nor my company Breck Adventure tours can not front the money. We are in the middle of buying another rafting company so we can be on the Ark next year.

I am willing to do all the work but can not put any money towards the startup cost! I would guess if we did 250 calenders around $2000.

One other thought we may be able to sell some advertising in the calender to help cover the cost. Probably not rafting companys but maybe CKS, Ten Mile, Confluence etc! 12 months 1 per page $100 or $150 would almost cover the cost!

Who likes to cold call?

If you have the time to devote to do a sweet project like this, get someone to front the money, sell advertising, ship it off, then ship 'em out, by all means - have at it. Unfortunately, I do not, realistically, thus the 2013 suggestion. I think it would be a pity to take a great idea and throw anything less than 100% into it. I will have much more time this spring to devote some quality attention to it - and certainly have it done in time to sell to the masses at events like, oh....let's say....BAILEY FEST 2012!!! and other venues.

If you want to try to get it together for 2012, I can't offer much support. If I had the time, I would, but nursing school would burry me if I tried.
