Just a suggestion for next year if people like it maybe it would be possible. Opinions on a group photo to be taken at each of the big meets like Spearfish, CFO, SFO, SEOR, EOM, etc and do a 2 photo deal on the months those events took place for the following year? Don't get me wrong I love the way this calendar looks and am especially happy that Petey is on the front. I just wanted to throw this out there for consideration.

Seeing as how we have those scattered about much of the year, we would end up with a calendar made up of group photos. Nothing against you ugly bastards...but I'd rather see the FJR in places I'd love to be.

I suppose in hindsight I failed to consider the damage to people's digestive abilities if forced to look at some of our forum members over breakfast each morning. Mea Culpa.

Yeah...but if I could post a "people" shot, it would be my screensaver at work. A photo of petey, gramps, and 0face in front of Hankins Country Store (circa October 2016)...

kudos to getting petey on the 2017 Calendar.

I know there was way more work involved than you let on and we can be a painful bunch. Thanks for such a cool idea and bringing it to fruition.

I would suggest one more thing. Raise the price a buck or two to cover the calendar to cover yours. This is the least we could do for all your hard work. Maybe I am speaking out of turn for everyone else, but I doubt it. Fine Job.
I have no problem paying for DesignFlaw06's calendar. None. That is a pretty insignificant thing compared to the work he put in and the Goodness of this calendar.
Awesome 2018 Calendar...December photo is awesome Redfish. Where was it taken?
