It's time for the begging to start.

If you want your bike to appear in next years can you send me your pics.

I'm also thinking about arranging a special weekend photoshoot if enough people are interested


Can this be made sticky by a Mod please

Deadline last year was September.

I'll get a layout sorted and then it's just a case of putting the pics in.

Page sponsorship will be the usual £50.

Which format, landscape or portrait. Probably safer to shoot both then Blizz has more choice with his layout. 40

Oh! and don't crop them 01

Blizz, count me for help and stuff too. I have a new camera too. There is a ride to cheddar gorge planned in May for pics as well isn't there?

I suggest a flip pad style this year rather than ring bind - sort of tear off pages?

2 benefits

1) should be cheaper (more charity profit) to produce
2) owners of pics can rip and frame pages with their steeds on.

B) should we try and have a vague theme for a change?
C) should we spread the word on email round the countries packs to help sales


on B) - long legged girls in pics - sorry to the ladies present, but sex sells, and it would sell in droves.

B2) any thing significant about 2010 - any major anniversary? airplanes (1st flight of concorde etc) /tanks/wars/ based themes?
landing on the moon - night shot theme
etc etc etc

maybe a "roadtrip" theme - plenty of fret tour/holidays that peeps go on..

I will try and come up with some layout ideas blizz - unless oggs - you have something in mind?

NB - how many will this one be - is it 5 or 6?

it might sell but I, along with others, wouldn't be able to put it up at work and unless you know of a free model or two then it would cost to hire them.

I'll bet the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight would assist if we need any pictures next to Lancasters, Spitfires etc. ... especially if the donation to charity was connected to them. I know someone from my past who was/is very closely connected to the Memorial Flight. I'd be more than pleased to approach him if needs be (assuming he's still breathing).

And some night shots would be great also.

Just some ideas Chizz.... atcherlee I have made some enquiries about some lasses who did a calendar for a Carp fishing mag I subscribe to.... nuffink smutty just had some ideas for tasteful shots of the lasses in riding kit sat on the bikes, just trying to find out if they are professional models and how much etc...

Can you use any of the others I sent you or do I need to get off my fat lazy arse and take some more? There is another airfield near here with a control tower but it'd look the same as the previous one just with a different number on it. One of the other piccies was taken at a local fort if thats any good.
