We're putting together a printed 2009 calendar featuring our member's cars. To have your vehicle be one of the monthly features, you're going to have to participate in one of the summer cruises that are being held in place of the normal monthly meetings. There will be 4 cruises with 3 vehicles voted in during each one; making 12.

The process:
The featured vehicles will be picked by you! Once we arrive at our final destination, you'll be able to vote for the top 3 vehicles. Only FFC members in good standing(i.e. dues paid to date) are eligible. Vehicles that have won at a previous event will be out of the voting for all subsequent events. You may request that your vehicles be entered as a group(all featured on one page)... for example; the Renkosiak's have asked that their 3 Camaros be voted on as one and if chosen, will have one picture with all 3 cars. Please let us know before voting so we may announce it to the group. Also, for those that have multiple vehicles, you must have the vehicle you'd want featured at the event. There are a total of 4 voting events, we understand that it's summer and you won't be able to make them all... it just takes 1! YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO HAVE YOUR VEHICLE VOTED IN!!

We have had two ladies step up and volunteer their photography services for this project(thanks ladies!!!!). We'll set up a photo shoot for all the winning entrants in September. Calendars will be ready for purchase late November.

If you don't happen to be voted as a featured vehicle, there is still another opportunity to make the calendar... the cover is going to be the club photo. We've been talking and talking about this photo and as if it's not hard enough to find a date where the majority of members can make it... then the weather doesn't cooperate. :rolleyes: Look for a poll on the club photo in the near future!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here(I'm sure I left something out). I'll keep this thread updated throughout the process so everyone knows what vehicles have already been chosen.

The May cruise was on the 27th. The top 3 from that event were:

1. '48 Lincoln Continental - Bill and Nora Saunders9/20
2. '32 Roadster - Bob Lucas9/20
3. '08 Blackjack - Eddie Musick - 9/20

The June cruise was on the 24th. The top 3 from that event were:

1. '70 Mustang - Brian Depedro - 9/20
2. '70 Chevelle - Bob Darden
3. '39 Packard - Claude and Pat WattsOwner Supplied

The July cruise was on the 22nd. The top 3 from that event were:

1. 3 Camaros - Tom, Dave and Steve Renkosiak
2. Ron and Di Watts
3. '05 Roush - Anissa Musick - 9/20
3. '66 Mustang - Tom Rogers9/20

The August cruise was on the 26th. The top 3 from that event were:

1. '69 Nova - J.T.
2. Chrysler 300 - Mike TillettOwner Supplied
3. '01 Vette - Skip Wescott


Dates for calendar photos are set up as follows:

September 20th - at the Chrome Pony Fall show in Elizabeth City
October 4th - Location TBD

We need to know who will be at the show on 9/20. Photos will be taken there and/or at different locations on the return trip. Those that will not be attending are asked to please be available on October 4th. If for any reason, you cannot be present on either date, I ask that you please let me know ASAP. We are also in need of a club group photo. It is virtually impossible to schedule a time that is going to be convenient for everyone. The best time to take one of these is going to be during the September cruise, I urge as many members as possible to attend!

Okay, so I went back through the bag o'votes and it seems I missed one. :confused: So after a recalculation, the top 2 stayed the same but Tom Rogers' gorgeous blue '66 Mustang vert tied with the Roush! I'm going to move the '05 to the same page as the Blackjack and give the '66 vert solo honors. :p

Unfortunately, the Chevy guys don't like to drive their cars. :rolling:

What about it Skip, Bob, etc... Hopefully we will have a good size and diverse group going. Who's in for this show?

Me...

I was looking at the cars that will be in the calender and their is pretty much an even split between classics and late models as well as Chevys and Ford. Where are all the mopars though? (Other than Mike).

I noticed you have our last name wrong on the Camaro listing for the calendar. Its Watson not Watts. Did you get the calendars ordered. I had hoped to have some for Christmas presents, or did the whole thing crash and burn :confused:
Any way Merry Christmas to all, hope you get what you wished for. My wish was to get my VW back. Oh well. At least I'm blessed with family and friends!!!

Yes, I know. Must have been a typo. I'll fix it...

Did you get the calendars ordered. I had hoped to have some for Christmas presents, or did the whole thing crash and burn :confused:

No. I will have one for everyone to see in the coming week(s). I'll take pre-paid orders at that time. I did not just order 20 or so as I personally will have to pay for them when they are ordered(CC only) and I didn't want to be stuck with calendars no one wanted. I'll let you know when it's in.

The first round of calendars have been ordered. I expect them to arrive sometime next week. Because of the lateness... the first month will be FEB.

Total price per calendar is $19.50 including shipping and taxes.

Please let me know here how many you'd like... once these are claimed, I will order another batch.
