I am always asked about racing by people who come into my office and see the couple pictures I have there. That led me to think, we do that in Arkansas every "now n gin", about a calendar.

Anyway, with the quality of photos taken by Shan could we pursue having calendars published and sell them for a bit over cost. That would pay for publishing and the profit could be used for transponders or air fence or whatever.

I'd buy one. Something makes me believe most members would buy one.

Good idea? Bad idea?

Thanks,

I spend $$$$ every year for 3 moto gp and WSB calenders. It seems that every time someone new comes into the shop they always ask if it is me on the calender??? It has become sort of a big joke around here as half the neighborhood kids think I am Max Biaggi.
I would definetly buy a couple if they were made. Heck I could pretend to be Sanchez or Haner this way. LOL. Good idea Tom.

Good idea on the calendars.
I'll get with Shan on this.

Maybe a "Men of the CMRA" calendar.
We could get a stud like Headley to pose in his boxers on the idiots bike, or get Jeff Grant to do some hair shots/poses. :-)
Oh, never mind........

Just a joke guys..............

I will buy several. I would love for them to be somewhat informational though, not just your typical fast rider shots. For ex; January= SuperSport, Feb.=Motards, March=V twins, April=Lightwieght, May=Heavy Twins, June=Jr. Motard, July=Mini, August= Vintage, etc., etc.. Action shots from a good cross section of classes would really show what the club has to offer. As someone mentioned in another post, people stop by his office and start asking questions. Too many people think motorcycle racing is for the extremely Rich, Crazy, Young, etc., etc. Let's show our coworkers, friends, and family that there is a place for everyone in this club. This would definately be a good recruiting tool.

Later, Eric

The calendar is a sweet idea. I guess the hard part is deciding on who gets to be pictured each month, but if we do a collage we can include lots of folks at various tracks, as suggested.
