Splendid suggestion :thumbs_up:
We are discussing your idea at the moment
But can not make any promises
We asked SANparks to make a calender from the winning entries from last year and
for various reasons it did not make it to the printers.

But its a new year, VHRs are installed , so we will give it another 100% :thumbs_up:


I'm guessing the "discussions" did not go well???

Hi All...

I have just popped in for the first time in about three months- been travelling etc- and was "checking up" on all my old posts.... Guess this idea was not such a good one then mods...?

We just gonna sweep it under the carpet?
:huh:

Inyati, I also suggested a calender to raise funds. With musketeers posing for it. ... Nothing happened...


I gave the Oom up for public auction to raise funds at the cricket, and nobody responded...

Hi Elzet,
Was actually working on a calendar for the last fund raising campaign but then got into the poem idea and so postponed it to this Christmas.
Your suggestions are always good and precious and one way or the other come things happen! :D

Hi Rums, and what brilliant ideas you have! :clap: :clap: :wink:


I thought torsos and pectus ambillicus of musketeers, softened by a lense or two, taken from the right angle, would be a sell-out. :roll: 8) You know, Bushwacker January 2011, Wild Billf February 2011, Rough and Ready March 2011 and so on. :roll: :twisted:

Sounds good too. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:


But on second thoughts, enough talent with cameras here on the Forum to put together the most amazing photos from Animalia.

For example, one of the top 12 lifers for stiffnecks, for those who love lions a lion calender, leopards (like me) shots of various leopards, a calender full of cheetahs, etc etc, and one a combo of all of the prime animals Sanparks have to offer, including whales.

I do realise that the fewer the print runs, the higher the costs. So yes, maybe a calender for all us Nature Adorers. :thumbs_up:

OK, let's agree to start a new thread during the first of September asking forum members to participate with their best pictures.
My only condition is that they be placed on auction during the first two weeks of December, great xmas presents!!!!, and that all proceeds go towards Sanparks/VHR projects.

If the Mods agree, sounds good to me.

* Sigh * Why do I relent so easily?, A musketeer calender would have been awesome. :twisted: :shock: :big_eyes:

just thinking, they probably wont approve, as it would be direct competition with all that stuff the parks shop sells.
