Hi Everybody,

With the success of the 2017 SQ Calendar (darn thing sold out), I'm up to doing another for 2018.  I only had about 40 days to put the 2017 together, so I didn't get to do quite as much as would have liked, and several of you didn't have enough time to put together some great shots to submit.  But thank you to everyone for the great feedback and compliments.  

The 2018 is going to be larger (12" X 12") and will have some additional graphics and goodies (been playing around already), so I'm going to need more photos/better resolution photos.  This thread is only for submissions.  I will not be taking payments/purchases until around September (I will post a purchase thread at that time).  As such, the cut-off date for submissions will be September 15th, 2017.  This will give me enough time to produce a mock-up for you guys to see and vote on (yes you guys are going to vote this one in too, after all it's your calendar)...as well as give people more time put in their order.

I'd like to donate proceeds to charity again...so I'll look into some options, or may just go with Covenant House again.

Cheers and thanks,
Nick

Donation amount was $302.50.  Not bad considering it was pretty much last minute.

Would really like to improve upon that this year!
