Dilly Dilly Sir.

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.

So, I see RF and Cav are paying for DF's calendar. Excellent! Or as Cav is prone to say these days...dilly dilly.

If I had a preference it would be for my photo to cover August.

Once Tim has everything set up, you'll be required to upload a video clip of you performing the secret handshake routine; once that routine has been reviewed and graded with a passing score, you'll be sent a series of puzzles to solve and submit for grading. Once a passing grade is achieved, a secret decoder ring will be mailed from Uzbeckistan via donkey express cargo. The secret decoder ring will contain clues to solve the puzzle which will provide the URL for the calendar ordering website.

I don't want a calendar anymore. Sorry. Lol.
I often have found myself when I was not looking, nor did that discovery take place where I thought it would!

Oh, sorry - I forgot to start that with, "insert sarcastic tone here"...

Patience - there will be a link published for ordering once Tim has it set up (I think/hope/assume).

OK, the wait is over! The calendar is available for purchase. I had to make a slight tweak to where the medal locations for the top 3 were in the photo. The reason for doing that was so that the artwork could be used on the regular calendar or the premium calendar format. I have no prior experience with the premium calendar, but Lulu offers it so I adapted the artwork to accommodate that. As far as I can tell, the difference is that it is a full page with the flip at the top rather than the middle. The profit margin is the same as the other calendar and it didn't cost me anything to setup the other.

2018 FJRiders.com Calendar - $13

2018 FJRiders.com Premium Calendar - $22

At the moment, LULU10 is a coupon code that will get you 10% off! 8NBHJD6V is good for 20% off!

Price is the same as the year before. Coupons are sponsored by Lulu, not me. If one doesn't work, there is usually something else so do a search.
Anything extra that I make is going back into the site, next year's contest, or the FJR community in some way. (A small portion of that may be in the form of a well deserved Captain Morgan cocktail to keep the creative juices flowing for the next contest).


Thank you all for the participation and appreciation of my efforts.

THANK YOU! Especially since I don't know the secret handshake. :o :?

Ordered a few extras for my brothers. Maybe now they'll understand why I ride.

I would edit your postings above with the lulu coupon...so people see it before they order. I got 10% off and am happy with that. Thanks again.

One difference this year over last year is that I added the Canadian holidays to the calendar along with the US ones.
