Maybe my post was misunderstood. Two points I wanted to make:
1) Steve is making money at $13 each and I have no problem with that, people can decide to buy if they want one. Cost is $5 -$6 to produce not $13.
2) Let's take care of the members who are owed money from the magazine not being delivered.

I don't think someone should be allowed to continue selling items when they owe money to members here for product that was never delivered. Steve is using the ruse of stating that he is not making any money on the calendar so he can continue this project without taking care of the people he owes. Just my .02!

I know better than to get into a pissing match in a forum, and therefore, won't. However, your assessment of the costs of producing the calendar leaves a number of key items, such as design, postage, envelopes, distribution, etc., out. It adds up. Further, given the small count of the calendar, it isn't cost effective to have the printer handle the distribution. I've run the numbers to avoid stuffing them and mailing them myself. You couldn't possibly think anybody is making any money on this small run of calendars. Regardless, we can produce them for the cost we always have. If everybody wants us to do that, we will. Otherwise, we won't.

I have posted in the magazine thread how we are handling the magazine. My post there speaks for itself. Nobody is avoiding anything. Rather, we wanted to take the time to evaluate the options, because I hated to see the magazine cease. We are working through the list of subscribers and emailing each one personally. That is how I intend to handle it; Not because I am avoiding anything. On the contrary. We are reaching out to subscribers individually, precisely because it is the right thing to do, and I respect this community, as well as my reputation within it. If you have another suggestion as to how we should handle it, I would be more than happy to hear it.

I don't see the two projects as connected in the least. And the ceasing of publication of the magazine doesn't have to end the calendar. At least I don't see why it would. If someone doesn't want to participate, that is their prerogative. While we want everybody included, we aren't begging anybody to submit their photos or buy a calendar, to make a buck here. Believe it or not, it does take a lot of work to put it together. If you would like to assist, we can always use a helping hand.

I was a subscriber to the mag and am disappointed in how that went this last year but things happen. That being said - I am still interested in a calendar; so my vote is make them and I will buy one.

I didn’t subscribe to the magazine. It’s extremely difficult to put out anything in print these days. Digital is in many cases, killing print. I kind of saw it coming and stayed on the sidelines. But Steve has put out a few great calendars so I’d be in on that.

Here are some shots of my car. Some of the best shots I have exceed the size limit for the site so if you want them Steve, they’d have to be emailed.

I love having the calendars in my office the last few years, thanks for taking the time to do them. Here is a picture from the Tail of the Dragon last weekend. We drove up Friday with the Birmingham PCA group with the top off. It was snowing when we left the Tapoco Lodge Sunday morning shortly before this pictures was taken and is the reason for the top and lights on.

"I don't see the two projects as connected in the least."

I do. I'm sure many others do too. I see the magazine and the calendar connected because you publish them both, Steve.

That said, I don't hold any animosity towards you, I received my magazines. I think it is a tough undertaking you took on and a seemingly thankless task. I perceive you as a good guy and you are really trying to do something cool.

I also think you should do the calendars, and you should be compensated for the time you take to do them. Frankly, after doing a /6 conversion, $13.00 is chicken feed to me.

I am interested in purchasing 2 calendars for an amount over 13.00 each as I we are interested in keeping this program every year. Our 74, 914 2.0 is a bit tired to present in your calendar but as budget allows will send a photo when complete.
Thank-you to all who work to put this fun calendar together.
Regards,
Scott

For what its worth, I don't care what you (Steve) make on each calendar. Your time + your effort. You produce a nice product and the ONLY 914 calendar I'm aware of. Thanks.

My submissions ...

I love the calendars! I am glad you are keeping this up.

I would really prefer to see a larger one.
