I'm happy to volunteer to design and oversee production and printing of a CR calendar. Besides being a bike-a-holic, vintage and otherwise, I'm a graphic designer in my day job. We'd need high resolution photos for the best reproduction. (Don't know if Dale's images began as higher resolution before they were posted on the website.) Most likely this should be planned as a 2005 calendar (we're already a bit late for a 2004 project) and we can use the next 10 or so months to collect the best images. One of the calendars I did for a international client included English, Spanish and Japanese, which might be nice for the CR audience.
