Airstream Forum Members' Calendar - Your Input Please!

AlumFalcon's wonderful Halloween "Aliens in my Airstream" photo got the wheels turning about an idea which would be fun for our members, and would ultimately benefit a charity.

The idea was introduced there; I think it merits its own thread, so here goes.

We are amazed by the talent of many photographers here. If you haven't already seen it, check out Darkspeed's entry in the October photo contest. It's mesmerizing!

My idea is that we enter into a collective effort - "The Airstream Forum Members' Calendar."

We could submit photos for say, the next year. Then we will hold an online vote - select the winning photo for each month. We could also approach our dealers, Jackson Center, and other businesses who restore Airstreams etc. for sponsorship of the calendar's printing costs. The sponsors will be recognized on the calendar.

The proceeds of sale will be donated to a charity (or charities) of our choice.

I think the calendar would sell well; just look at the volume of hits this website gets every day, the number of people who attend rallies, to say nothing of the retro enthusiasts in the general public who would appreciate a very unique calendar.

So, I am casting a line out to those who may be interested in getting this idea off the ground....or on the road, so to speak. Does anyone here have any experience with such a project? I am involved in fund-raising and would certainly be willing to take a pivotal lead in this project, but there may be others who have more experience in this kind of thing.

I have Googled "Airstream Calendar" and came up with this from 2002....
Amazon.com: Airstream 2002 Wall Calendar (9780811830980): Chronicle Books, Bryan Burkhart: Books

I am assuming it was put out by Jackson Center, but I'm not sure. If they are still producing a calendar, they probably would not want to sponsor ours. A second calendar might not be viable either. Does anyone know if Jackson Center still puts out a commercially-marketable calendar (or one which is given away as a freebie promotion?)

I also am wondering if the webmaster/owner of this forum would object to such a project, ie would they consider it a copyright infringement or violation of the site's terms of service.
Respectfully, I am not sure who this entity is; if they could PM me, or perhaps respond to this thread with their input, that would be most appreciated.

Any other input/ideas/feeling are most welcome!
