Hi,

Is there going to be one? I need to fill the gap left by last years MLR calendar :clap:

Had a lil search although they seem to be based around previous years, some great pictures to be found on those threads :thumbsup:

No GTROC calender anymore. Used to be a proper highlight but was too much effort IIRC

To be honest it's probably a bit late now to be collecting pictures, doing a layout, getting people interested and then printing and sending them out.

Maybe we could do one next year?

Do a f**k January edition. then you only need 11 pictures and you have an extra month to get all that sorted :)

Yeah the MLR calendar was class, bit surprised at no GTROC calendar considering the cost of annual membership is higher than than the mlr's.

The calendar was not really economically viable as so few were sold. A lot of work for no real financial benefit to Club. In fact if I had not bought a large number each year, because I gave them to all the staff and some Clients, it probably would have lost money.

Financially reality is, a specialist, small quantity calendar is not really going to work unless people are prepared to pay like £25/30 a throw and generally they aren't.

Shame, I wasnt expecting one to be made now of course, just wondered if one was in the pipeline.

There's a lot of skilled photographers around and some really nice pictures about, I'll just try and make some of them a desktop theme I change at work every month :thumbsup:

I really liked (and bought) the calendar when it was going. A very well put together item.

Cant remember when the last one was made but i suspect, with a good few extra forum members now and a good publicity campaign on forum, that a 2015 calendar should be viable. Gotta be worth revisiting IMHO

Dave - yes it is a niche market but the forums reach is worldwide. With the right on-forum marketing and price structure i believe the potential for a calendar is far stronger now that it was when it was going.... An item before its time perhaps?????

TT

Buy them? The mlr gave them away as part of yearly membership fee :)
Yes that was part of it :)

But the GTROC membership appears to work differently on being a paid up member? (not looked too far into this tbh, hopefully someone can clarify).:bowdown1:

I paid mine last week so will see what you actually get for your 45 quid soon, and decide wether it's worth doing again next year. So there's no quarterly magazine either to look forward to then?

Perhaps there should be a thread for people to post up the best photo of their cars so that people could pick out the photos they like and go get their own Vistaprint calendar done for £7.99?
Membership seems to be geared towards money off trackdays.
