I thought of a great idea for a future C3VR calendar. Have all our regions submit group Vette pictures, or several members Vettes from the same cities and/or states. This would also allow for more Vettes in one year of the calendar and give more of a chance for you to get your Vette in the calendar.

So far, the Mid-West has had two separate gatherings (ok, 2nd one is currently scheduled...) this year.  I suppose we could take two pages...  You could also get pix from those who gather at Fun Fest, Carlisle, NCM functions, etc.

Great idea Aaron, I guess as much as we do here together in the NW we could take up six months. It will be funny to have 8 different opinions on which pic is the one to use.

Don't forget the previous years C3VR gathering photo Clap
 
This subject is endless LOL  We could do a specialty photo calender, either photoshop entries, specialty pictures, who knows.
 
Another idea I had thought of is online voting on members favorite pictures.  Members submit a picture they would like in the calendar and we all vote on the favorites.  Top 12 win a spot in the calender Clap  All you need to do is start a poll with links to all the pics.  It's a lot of work but I'd be up for the task.

Hey guy's not to throw sour grapes but I think the main draw to the callander is to see large detailed photo's of different rides so you can judge how yours stand up to them. Group photo's would be like a page full of thumbnails. Just a thought. Save the wave.

also don't forget the publishing cost of the calendars. Adam keeps our cost down by getting a lot price on the calendars, if each region had a calendar (I really like the idea) the cost would go up: but maybe everyone would buy a set of calendars (one from each region) to keep the cost down?

The thought was not to have a calendar for each region, but to have each region across the USA and our members outside the USA to submit a group photo of there Vettes with the same format as far as background, not thumbnail shots. Such a photo example would be when the NW group goes on a driving tour such as Mt St Helens, WA, this would be a great time and spot for a photo. The number of Vettes in a region would vary from a couple to maybe as many as a dozen, and with the right placement of Vettes and background it would make some great calendar photos.
