Calendar Costs
« on: November 08, 2019, 10:10 »
Calendar costs have increased this year due to less than 50% of previous years volumes being ordered.

The total cost has to cover origination, set up, materials and packaging.

This year's price for the calendar will be 8.00 each.
Before anyone sends any money I will write to each individual with total cost including postage to their region.
I will try to do this over the weekend.

As usual I will enclose payment options in the message.

Thanks for your swift co-operation.

As I said earlier this will be the last year I organise calendars as I have had enough of herding cats for diminishing orders.
There is a possibility someone else will take over the organisation of the whole process though.

Grant, it's been said before & by many men far more sage than I: thanks for all your efforts, the calendar never disappoints. Put me down for two, please!

A shame to see the demise of the calendar. Your efforts are appreciated Grant. Cost is not a problem, its a pleasure to have a different Laverda on the wall every month.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle theres no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Bob, I thought I already had you down for 2, no?

Cam, is this serious or another of your witticisms?

Order book has closed, photos going to the printer once I source larger format versions.
Waiting on a reply from 5 folk.

Not a witticism. in previous years you had separate threads for voting and ordering. Info on ordering wasn't at all clear which might explain why orders were down 50% on last year. I didn't realise you were about to close the order book. Looks like I missed out. Doubt I'm the only one.

Well I posted very regular appeals for orders.
I wanted orders sewn up before going to print but I can accept your order if you send me your address and order quantity by PM.
There has been a delay while I wait for a few folk still to send higher resolution photos.
Hopefully I will receive them by Monday morning (UK time) and then I can finalise quantities with the printer.

Yes, it's hard to believe the order numbers have dropped so much especially with the brilliant pictures submitted this year.

Ok, a grand total of 87 calendars have been ordered, around half of previous years as I said.
I now have all the higher resolution photos I need in order to press the button with the printer later today.

Last, LAST chance to order if you get your order (with address please) to me in the next 3 hours or so.

Thanks to all who have participated in the calendar events over the years.
